If the key to creativity is looking at the world through a different lens, how do you change your lens? Individuals and companies alike are constantly striving to discover new approaches in creative thinking and innovation to engage a target audience.
This April, designer, innovator, and global leader Lorrie Vogel shares the keys she has used to unlock creativity as an instrument for success in both personal and professional challenges. Tapping into the right brain allows for complex problem solving that can result in superior innovations and advancements. While many companies and schools are recognizing the value of creative thinking, the tools to acquire this skill set are not always available to those in pursuit – something that Lorrie is striving to address and share.
Lorrie is the founder of ImagineNOW LLC – a consultancy that accelerates innovation by using the power of design thinking, leveraging over 25 years of innovation, design and sustainability expertise. Lorrie enjoyed a 21-year career at Nike, bringing innovation to all facets of Nike’s products as well as shaping the future of the apparel and footwear industry as the VP of Nike’s Material Science and Innovation. Before working at Nike, she was a partner at one of the top three design firms; working on a diverse range of products from snowboard bindings to lady shavers. She started her career as a toy designer for Texas Instruments working on several educational products like Speak-n-Spell.
