We spend a lot of time thinking about creative work and what challenges and opportunities the future will bring to the field. “Work”, “Creativity” and “The Future” are terms that get used a lot in our circles, but are we working off a common definition when we use them? How you define these terms will invariably differ from how I do. How society and industry at large define these terms has changed, of course, throughout history too.
Within our lifetimes, our attitudes towards and engagement in “work” vary massively and this malleability is only increasing with “the future”, and all the technological advances it brings with it, coming ever closer. How we could/should work in the future is getting the Crowdstorm treatment at the moment in the first project of our recently launched ForeWork initiative.
The future of work and, more specifically, the future of creative work and innovation is never far from our minds at jovoto and, so, we have put together this collection of some of our favourite thought-provoking quotes to challenge and inspire you. There are quotes about work, about entrepreneurship, on creativity and on innovation.
At any given time there are a number of projects live on the jovoto platform calling on designers and creative minds to re-think, re-conceive and re-design everything from limited edition product lines to the future of mobility and the health services industry.
At the moment we are focusing the conversation on the future of work with our ForeWork initiative – looking to the jovoto’s global creative crowd to contribute insights and perspectives to help organizations re-work “work”. By joining this global discussion on the next generation of talent, your ideas will be heard by top-level executives, thought leaders and potentially the readership of WIRED.
Nearly every major news channel has reported on the “future of work” in recent years – but few highlight the potential day-to-day realities experienced by creative talents. To reframe the conversation and include you in the discussion, jovoto has founded the ForeWork Initiative in partnership with adidas, Cisco and Vitra.
To kick-off the discussion, ForeWork is collaborating with WIRED. Together we want to invite you to the first ForeWork crowdstorm: A chance to let the world know what matters to you in the workplace and to influence the future of work!
