As part of AIGA’s ongoing partnership for In-House INitiative with leading creative staffing agency The Creative Group on the Creative Team of the Future program, we’re excited to
share the results of our annual investigation into what sets the country’s most innovative companies apart.

If you want to innovate, don’t wait for the juicy projects to hit your desk. “You’re not always going to get the brief you wanted,” says Peters. “Identify
the problem and try and fix it. You have to put it on yourself to rock out some good ideas.” Then sell those big ideas to your boss or team.
Always create multiple solutions to the problem.
True creativity means exploring more than one option to any design problem. “The more you push yourself to do three or four different versions, the more
you’re going to have to get creative,” says Scott Kirkwood, editor in chief at National Parks magazine and senior director of publications at the National
Parks Conservation Association.
