Jessi Arrington is a designer who taps into the power of unexpected joy. As co-founder of the intentionally small Brooklyn-based design studio WORKSHOP, she produces projects with love for TED, Etsy and Brooklyn Beta, and co-runs the co-working space Studiomates. Her favorite color is rainbow and her default answer is YES. And therefore I have been super happy that she also said YES, when I asked her to come and speak at beyond tellerrand // PLAY & MAKE.
Title: "Take it To Eleven."
Stay in line. Please sit quietly. Act your age. Quirks and abnormal behaviors, often discouraged or suppressed, might actually be the qualities that make you unique and valuable. Unapologetic enthusiasm and embracing your “you-ness” could be the key to a new career path, not to mention pure unadulterated happiness. Be honest with yourself about who you are, then tell the world by cranking it up to eleven.
