Stefan Sagmeister - To break the rules, know the rules

If you want to break the rules you have to know the rules says designer Stefan Sagmeister in the latest IdeaFestival Conversation. Create unease and creativity will follow. Schedule a sabbatical and give yourself the gift of thinking. Be resolute about taking this time away (even if it's 30 minutes a day) and it will change your life.

Talking about how creativity loves constraints, he memorably asked at IdeaFestival 2010, "How can creatives do something when they can do anything?"

The latest IF Conversation can always be found on YouTube at IFTV, as well as in the right sidebar of the IdeaFestival web site for those of you reading this post in a feed reader.
