Why our team takes time off for 'Creative Day'

As a team, we take a day off each month to go on a creativity refresh adventure we call Creative Day. We've been to local museums, learned how to throw a bowl in a local ceramics studio, explored the process of printing with gelatin and more. Each time we've explored something none of us is particularly good at. The benefits of getting off our computers and up close with real materials is priceless. 

Sometimes our Creative Days have led to us adopting some of the skills learned into our work.
