Jason Adam Talks Creativity With Ventito

Jason Adam Interviewed by Ventito - Hexanine

Inspiration is at the heart of what we do on a daily basis at Hexanine, and it’s something we love to talk about. That’s exactly what our co-founder, Jason Adam, did with the great folks at Western Digital’s Ventito in a wide-ranging interview. Here’s a snippet:

“My attitude now is the same as it was before: Opportunities need to be uncovered. And the best way to do that is by consistently making unreasonable requests. There’s almost always nothing to lose, and wild and incredible experiences to gain.”

You can check out the rest of the interview at the link above, and hear from other experts in creativity at Ventito.

Musings: For Love Or Money?

Wonderful, inspirational thoughts from Neil Gaiman, addressing students at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia:

“Nothing I did where the only reason for doing it was the money was ever worth it, except as bitter experience. Usually I didn’t wind up getting the money, either. The things I did because I was excited, and wanted to see them exist in reality have never let me down, and I’ve never regretted the time I spent on any of them.”

Musings: Emotions As Fuel

Our short musings on design, branding, business and the human condition.

It can be easy in business or life to discount the importance of emotions in favor of things that are more easily measured. But the difficult-to-quantify are sometimes the most valuable and crucial in the long run. Nothing inspiring or meaningful ever gets done without the application of genuine emotion. Emotions might be ethereal and ephemeral when compared to numbers on a spreadsheet, but they are the fuel rods that power passionate action.

Our Work In Big Book of Packaging

Hexanine work in Big Book of Packaging

When they say it’s big, they’re not kidding! We just received our copy of Harper Design’s Big Book of Packaging and it’s chock full of great package designs. We’re happy to be in such good company, as we have several entries in the volume as well, including work for Jim Beam, The Art of Spice, Omaha Steaks, and a few others. The solid design of the book keeps all the inspiring work front and center. Highly recommended!

One of the great things about design is its ability to act as a window in time, for us to get a taste of what that era was like. If we’re old enough, those combinations of words and images conjure up powerful memories, associations and emotions. Great design does that.
