AIGA Arizona says
Join AIGA Arizona for a fun-filled evening with Native Texan, brand strategist, and entrepreneur Ben Jenkins. This is a two part event, lecture and workshop.

Live Slow. Make Fast.
Ben Jenkins is the founder of the branding company Onefastbuffalo and the sporting goods brand Warstic. A former professional baseball player, he spent a decade doing what most design firm and agency owners do. Working. Not much else. In his talk, Ben discusses:

how creatives might consider dedicating to the long haul of:
- mastering their craft without leaving their spirit, relationships and health behind
- concepts for learning to focus on what matters in order to free up time to live and work
- why the idea of work-life balance is a myth for the creative person
- the difference between living a creative life that mindfully fuels your work and health vs. living the life of a person in the creative industry

For Ben, living #LSMF not only improved his health, it improved the quality of OFB’s work and brought on the most profitable and enjoyable years in OFB’s 17 year history. This also led to things like living & working half time on the road in a vintage Airstream trailer, limiting OFB’s client work season to 9 months per year, and developing his own brands outside of fee-based client work.
