Border Control

What will Brexit mean for the creative community? Agencies in London and Manchester may have trouble finding talented designers, but, as Michael says, it goes beyond that:
Creativity and innovation... are really largely borderless constructs.

Globalization can have inspiring benefits to people on a personal level, at the local level, and it doesn’t just mean the ability of giant banks to move digitized money around. It’s really about how ideas can spread, and how good ideas can spread to counter bad ones.
