As anyone in the creative industry can attest to, sometimes things get busy. Very busy. When things get busy, it’s easy to lose sight of the forest for the trees. It’s easy for the “industry” in “creative industry” to loom large and for the “creative” to get lost in its shadow.
The technology team at Second Story has started a bi-monthly art workshop where one member of the team brings a short code sketch that the other members can modify, tweak, and personalize during the session. These two-hour blocks are short enough to keep going even when project-related work is in overdrive. The goal is for the art workshops to serve as a creative release valve for the developers and inspiration for the rest of the studio.
Here are the results of the first workshop, set to music from Interactive Developer Chris Carlson. Enjoy!
