This month I decided to watch the video interviews on CreativeLive by Chase Jarvis and get some daily inspiration, motivation and wisdom. I’ve decided to blog about the series, logging my thoughts and takeaways…

Day 7 creative genius – Stefan Sagmeister.

A great design hero that I discovered when I was in university, way back in the day. At the time I was intrigued by his work but also was a bit standoffish because I couldn’t exactly relate to his art show topics. Maybe it was my youth!

It was interesting to listen to the interview discussion, but I think the takeaway for me was regarding his one year sabbatical every seven years. No, not that it’s amazing or whatever that he does this in his business… but that his year of sabbatical is NOT sitting on a beach relaxing or “wasting time” because he has no work to do. Nope. He has a regimented schedule to keep him exploring and “working.”

Hmm… that is something to ponder. So his sabbatical year is really like a research year, in my mind. Interesting.
