Lemonade the movie:
“More than 70,000 advertising professionals have lost their jobs in this “Great Recession.” Lemonade is about what happens when people who were once paid to be creative in advertising are forced to be creative with their own lives.”
Right after you watch Art&Copy covering the fun hectic creative work life in an advertising agency, it only seems fit to check out “Lemonade” which follows a few creatives who lose their jobs only to find spare time to chase after their dreams!
Can you get the best in both worlds? Yup… Guru graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister during TEDglobal 2009 encourages creatives to take 1 year sabbaticals every 7 years to recharge.
“He described a typical life timeline: The first 25 or so years are devoted to learning, the next 40 or so to working, and the final 25 to retirement.
Then he asked: Why not cut off 5 years from retirement and intersperse them into your working years?
So every seven years, Sagmeister closes his design shop, tells his clients he won’t be back for a year, and then goes off on a 365-day sabbatical.It sounds costly, I know. But he says the ideas he comes up with during the year “off” are often what provide the income for next seven years.” (daniel pink blog)
