With much of the world still in the midst of an ongoing global pandemic, perhaps you’ll agree that this year has felt both different and eerily similar to the last.
Despite what has been yet another challenging 12 months, however, here at Creative Lives, we’ve been uplifted by the perseverance, energy and determination of all our interviewees – and our Pep Talk guests are no exception. Because while we’ve remained physically distant, 2021 has also seen us connect with a range of inspiring creatives around the globe.
Dialling in from London, Brighton and Birmingham to Los Angeles, New York, Tokyo, Sydney and Cairo, each of our guests spoke about their individual journeys, while sharing some truly universal advice. Expertly guided by our brilliant host Steph Fung, their discussions touched on everything from portfolios and social media to finding your style – not to mention the occasional chat about tropical fish, or the unexpected link between NFTs and Pokémon.
As the Creative Lives team prepare to take a break over the next two weeks, we’re confident that each conversation is filled with enough pep to keep you fuelled over the holidays. So no matter where you find yourself over the festive break, or where your creative interests lie, we hope you find some reassuring and empowering words of wisdom below.
