What are the hottest upcoming trends in the creative industries? And which skills do you need to navigate them in the years ahead? To find out, last summer The Creative Group (TCG) interviewed leading creative thinkers and conducted a survey in partnership with the American Advertising Federation. The results of that research are compiled in the guide The Creative Team of the Future.
As part of that project, Richard Grefé, executive director of AIGA, the professional association for design, spoke to TCG about how creative professionals can elevate their role in the business world and earn greater validation for what they do. Hear his insights in the video above.

Executive director Richard Grefé finds evidence to show that the opportunity for design and
designers has never been greater.

AIGA Insight, education, business
It’s tempting to cling to craft
and tools as the core of design curricula. But with some research and
experimentation in the classroom, author David Sherwin found a new model for
helping students to become more creative, collaborative and resilient (and more
employable in the process).

Section: Why Design -
AIGA Insight, Design for Good, social responsibility
There are two roads to travel as a designer matures: one is to become bitter and resent younger designers and new ideas; the other, the one that Saul followed, is to help the next generation, to be open to new ways of making and thinking, and to work for the entire profession.
