“The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity; the creative mind plays with the objects it loves.”
This famous quote from Carl Jung recently surfaced in an interview with Alistair Webb, Creative Director at Made Thought, who spoke with us about the creative process that drives the London-based agency’s branding and identity designs for Design Miami.
The notion of play as both a creative wellspring and a labor of love is just as apt when considering Made Thought’s innovative work for our sister brand, Miami Design District. For both companies—an international collectible design platform and Miami's premier destination neighborhood—provocative yet well considered brand expressions have played a vital role in our evolution and success.
