In times of rapid change, creatively led organizations should be shaping the future. It takes imagination and empathy to see the human potential of new technology. It takes curiosity and obsessive craft to develop a grammar for new media formats.

It’s time for creatives to step forward and organizations to prioritize creative vision.
