I came across this dope Mercedes-Benz advertisement today at work, and couldn’t help but be taken by both the striking beauty of the piece and the slightly misleading statement it makes. It’s easy to subscribe to stereotypes about creative people (full of sh*t, flighty) and logic-driven folks (robotic, lacking emotional intelligence), but in all honesty both capabilities are needed to be truly successful in any endeavor.
With that said, I know I sometimes
not so secretly judge people who lack…imagination. But I also know that the technological innovation of the iPhone doesn’t come from the same place as the creativity it takes to paint The Persistence of Memory.
Just a little something to think about.
