Health ≠ Hustle: A Design Counterculture Movement

AIGA Arizona, Adele Mulford

In a creative culture that encourages "hustle," what does it mean to put yourself — and your mental well-being first? As creatives, we have super-powers to be able to pull back the veil between the mundane and the magic. However, we often forget to feed, nurture and care for our creativity in a way that is both intentional and long-lasting.

In this session, Adele will share her personal story of climbing the ladder, living in overdrive, and then overcoming burnout. This is more than a cautionary tale: it's a story of inspiration and hope (+ humor!) that will provide tangible ways to care for your mental health while keeping the creative fire alive.
