The creative spirit has shaped every facet of our culture from the stone tool to the space station. It can take many forms —personal expression in art, a desire to craft something wholly new, or in the commercial world, a better way to communicate value and worth.
Creativity is a divining, a way of thinking, that propels us into the future with grace, purpose, and a wild-eyed desire to leave our imprint. It is our superpower for solving tomorrow's problems and making for a more beautiful world. At The Short List we nurture and honor that spirit to help creativity flow, problem solving happen, and inspiration find its target.
It's about embracing the creative in all of us.
