Today’s talk, held at our annual design, art and music conference, Weapons of Mass Creation Fest 2014, comes to us from Jolby and Friends. Jolby and Friends is a collaborative studio based in Portland, Oregon dedicated to telling stories through design and illustration. [Just another keen message from the home for custom website design in Ohio, Go Media].
Here’s what Josh Kenyon and Colby Nichols, otherwise known as Jolby and Friends, had to say about the talk you’ll find below:
Achieving Better Collaboration
“Most creators only scratch the surface about what it means to work with someone else. After 8 years of working together and pushing the idea of collaboration, we want to ask “what’s beyond a typical collaboration?” How can you get closer, dive deeper, and create something bigger than anything you could have imagined? Collaboration happens at every level of what we do from concept to execution. As a team of designers, makers, illustrators, thinkers, and wonderers, we accomplish more than any of us could have done on own. This is our foundation and our goal, to collaborate for the better.”
