  1. Thank you. This is so affirming! (the art deco style is super adorable too). Honestly Arts graduates need to be working EVERYWHERE.They need to be given trust and power. They need to be running the world. Working at a huge corporation showed me how desperately they need creative problem solvers but how extremely quickly initiatives get stymied by internal politics and “business as usual”. The business pays creative agencies piles of money to revamp an image because they don’t hire creative people internally. The energy is stymied exactly for the reasons expressed in the video. So what do we do? Keep rocking art school. Artist for president.
