Duc Huynh, a designer in Denver, says the recent Ted talk on candles and creativity, reminded him of this graphic depiction of a similar idea, which he created a few years ago. (You’ll need to click on the image to see it in its entirety.)
Kudos to Duc! This design makes you feel sorry for all the people out there commuting for hours to jobs they hate only to have a thoughtless boss who is either incentivizing or punishing them.
Whatever happened to a life-long love of learning?
This is really good. Get him to design a set of e-postcards using themes from Drive. People can then send them to colleagues and friends while also promoting the book.
well, there seems to be a slight difference, contained in the word “always”, isn’t there?
Great idea Jeff Cufaude! Could also use this in a global “spread the Motivational spirit” campaign around the globe similar to the cool “pay it forward” campaign started by the KIND team – see http://www.kinded.com/ Have those “touched by a true motivator” send the motivator a card and mark on the map where/how it happened! (well perhaps ideas needs a bit of refinement, but the postcards are a cool idea!!)
This is a spectacular graphic. The left side by itself had great punch.
