5 Ways You're Killing Your Creative Potential

Creativity scores have been in decline since the 90’s. Over the last 2 years, three quarters of all top-grossing movies have been sequels or remakes. Chord structures in music have become homogenized. Schools are cutting funding for the arts.

Join Brent Anderson, Chief Creative Officer of TBWA\Media Arts Lab, Apple’s dedicated creative agency, for an inspiring message of 5 things killing creativity & how to avoid them.
