According to the founders of Goodby Silverstein & Partners, being out in the world and exploring different disciplines are the keys to a life of creativity as the path to being a good creative is to take inspiration from everywhere and everyone. For Rich Silverstein, a graduate of Parson School of Design, the Beatles White Album, Stanley Kubrick, photographer Irving Penn and Malcolm X are some of the people and events that impacted his career. He advises aspiring creatives to “open their eyes and ears to the planet – to the news, your teachers, artists, film makers, musicians, designers, and architects. Be humbled by their talent. Soak it up. And then add your very own self.
