Over the last seven months, as the Covid-19 virus has continued its spread, our worlds have become smaller. Working from home has morphed from a novelty to the mundane. Travel for business or pleasure, once routine, has become nonexistent. Seeing friends, going to our favorite restaurants, visiting family — the list of things we can’t do, and won’t be able to for months to come, is endless.
Peter Quinn stopped to talk about how the lack of novelty in our Covid existence can negatively impact our creativity — our ability to put ideas together in new, useful combinations to solve problems.
Peter Quinn describes what he does as being a creative director working at the nexus of brand, culture, and purpose. As a creative professional, he helps organizations grow, engage, shift beliefs and attitudes, and sometimes what he makes inspires people to act. Peter believes that everyone contains many selves. His past experience of being a performer in bands, painter, curator, video creator, and even little league baseball coach, father, and husband– has allowed him to bring a lens to his projects– one that is uniquely his.
