We all should be building a creative meritocracy

When it comes to discussing creativity and creative team building there is no one I turn to more for inspiration and thought leadership than Scott Belsky, the founder of Behance and the 99U Conference. I’ve been lucky enough to know Scott for a while, I’ve had him come to work with my design team and I make anyone who works for me read his book Making Ideas Happen. I was able to briefly catch up with him at Adobe MAX and see his session where he talked about and defined a creative meritocracy. I don’t care what type of creative work you do, this is the type of system and culture we would all kill to work in.  Like all of Scott’s talks it is well worth your time to watch what he has to say.
