Look What We Can Do When We Do It Together:

Human connection. It’s the moment where magic happens. Our desire for it leads us to new people and ideas, and brings us back to the ones we love. It expands our minds and our perspectives, inspires us to bridge the unknown, and reveals the hearts of others. Connection drives collaboration. But this powerful force doesn’t just happen. It must be practiced, promoted, and celebrated. This holiday season, Intrinzic is celebrating the connections we’ve made this year, collaborating with brands of all types and sizes. From non-profits and start-ups, to universities and global corporations, we’ve met advocates, educators and entrepreneurs who have inspired us to create...

YOU ARE HERE:

Getting my driver’s license was one of the more terrifying days of my life—and let’s be honest, my parents’ lives, as well. Not because I finally had the freedom to hit the open road at the ripe old age of 16, but because I knew that it was the beginning of the end of being eternally “lost.” I have always been what my family calls "directionally challenged," even with my keen visual sense of the world around me. Getting in the car with me behind the wheel is nothing short of an adventure—for the passenger, obviously. People can’t just tell me to “head north” or...

Collaboration Starts With You:

In the world of Web, designers and developers are both digital problem solvers with two very different approaches to their craft. When the two are truly collaborating, the results can be impressive—meaningful user experiences driven by clear purpose, which can be implemented, measured, and inspire action. As a digital designer and the director of the web process at my agency, I’ve benefited from a close working relationship between design and development and I know firsthand how much more impact my work can have when I grow a solid partnership with my developer. But, as with any type of collaboration, the trick is to overcome the...

Branding shouldn’t be a puzzle…

As a creative, I am constantly searching for meaningful inspiration. When I came across the Clemens Habicht Color Puzzles, in which each jigsaw piece is an individual color that must be placed exactly in relation to every other color, I thought it would make a perfect collaborative challenge for the Intrinzic design team. After all, putting together the pieces of a brand is like putting together the pieces of a complex puzzle. It takes the ability to fuse science and method with creativity and innovation, with the goal of communicating and visualizing a strategic and compelling point of view. Our mission at Intrinzic everyday is...

Why risk it?

Leader, explorer, risk taker. Whenever I take a personality test, these are the attributes that usually pop up for me. It’s that last one that I identify with the most. There’s nothing more thrilling to me than the possibility of succeeding at something I’ve never done before. Some might think that’s crazy, but I say it’s hopeful. And as a designer, I’ve learned that taking creative risks during the design process is what leads to innovative ideas that uniquely solve my clients’ needs. In fact, it would be more crazy of me to avoid risk, because without being comfortable wading into the unknown, I wouldn’t be...

Staying Inspired:

As a graphic designer, my job hinges on creativity. Staying inspired can be an exhausting and daunting task. I have found that being inspired doesn’t necessarily rely on waiting for inspiration to hit, but actively searching for it…in other words, staying motivated to be inspired. When I am feeling the pressure to be inspired, I have found that I can replenish my creative juices before they run dry by incorporating three simple practices into my routine. ### 1. Never stop learning. My peers are my biggest source of motivation. This industry is constantly evolving at a rapid pace. By staying on top of what others...
