Four MPLS Creatives Decide to Head West for Inspiration

Perhaps stuck in a rut in their Twin Cities surroundings, four creative types have decided to take a trip out west, via automobile we believe, and go “in search of inspiration — risking life, limb and Dysentery in the name of creative enlightenment.”Good for them for getting the time off.

Well, we’re assuming their travels won’t be as dramatic as stated, the parties involved –Digitaria writer/designer Grant Spanier, account planner/former Campbell Mithun Lucky 13 intern Laura Fitzpatrick, former CM copywriter Vince Koci and filmmaker Jake Woodbridgewill be creating a documentary out of their adventures as they hit up various shops in cities like Portland, L.A., Las Vegas and Denver. Their goal? To find out what inspires those at the “forefront of media creativity” and in turn gain inspiration of their own. Yep, it’s a bit gimmicky, but maybe it’ll be interesting to see how the group’s two-week “finding yourself” excursion turns out. To find out more about this “Creatives Go West” project and follow their trail, go here.
