CreativeLive: The Experience

CreativeLive's community stretches from their local Seattle and San Francisco studios across the international dateline and back again. Our team's question was this: how do we build moments of surprise, delight, and connection for our students, staff, instructors near and far? The following samples are just a few answers to that quandary.

Photo Week 2017 Student Kit

Photo Week 2017 Student Kit

Our in-studio students took home this jam-packed kit of keepsake postcards with photos by Photo Week instructors, a lovingly curated city guide to Seattle for out-of-town visitors, a blank notebook, and other bits and bobs of CreativeLive goodness.

Seattle Pocket City Guide

Need to find the most 'gram-able view? Looking for the best espresso in town? Or maybe you're just hankering for a quick bite in South Lake Union. Either way, I designed, illustrated, and wrote this curated guide to some of the best spots in Seattle (many of which happen to be nearby the CreativeLive studios).

CreativeLive Notebooks

CreativeLive Notebooks

A collection of five blank notebooks featuring artwork by myself and creative director Vasco Morelli, inspired by creativity and the company's geographical surroundings. These are often included in the new hire kits for staff and are also given to students in-studio.

In addition to Seattle, CreativeLive also has studios in San Francisco. After hearing continual requests from instructors and students alike for a San Francisco guide to the best of the best, the Creative Studio team finally acquiesced in 2016, and I took my own liberties with this one.

Some pro-tips: Land's End is definitely the best viewpoint in the whole city, and don't forget to grab some Trouble coffee and cinnamon toast in the Outer Sunset before you hike out there. These maps are part of a limited edition of 200, lovingly screenprinted by Peter Calderwood and Lena Gustafson at Night Diver Press in Oakland. If you visit CreativeLive in San Francisco and ask nicely, ye might just receive one of your own.
