SXSW 2018 – Connecting and synthesizing new things.

Steve Jobs said, ‘Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things.’

The South by Southwest (SXSW) Conference and Festival celebrate the convergence of the interactive, film, and music industries. Fostering creative and professional growth alike, I could not be happier to be back in Austin Texas. Thankyou Dentsu for allowing me to attend.

The SXSW event is very big now and some say has lost some of its intimacy, but I personally feel it still remains the premier destination for creative inspiration.

So if you are in town this week for SXSW, do message me so we can walk a tightrope between blind faith and curiosity, between expertise and creativity, between bias and openness, between experience and epiphany, between ambition and passion and between an old today and a new tomorrow.

My SXSW schedule as it stands today can be found here.
