The Economist is running a great opinion piece on the effects of art and artists on business. It’s a great read given the current debates on funding for the arts. The quote to note? This one:
” If businesspeople should take art more seriously, artists too should take business more seriously. Commerce is a central part of the human experience. More prosaically, it is what billions of people do all day. As such, it deserves a more subtle examination on the page and the screen than it currently receives.”
Both worlds have a lot to learn from one another. In design process terminology these two sector need some serious hybridization.
