One thing I know

By is celebrating its foundation with the launch of a new book featuring a wealth of hard-earned business insights from an impressive range of leaders from across the creative spectrum, from Aardman to Future Publishing.

Thats all well and good you might think but what about our wealth of creative talent in Bournemouth, Poole and Dorset? Thats who we really want to hear from. Well fear not, there are insights from Salad, 3 Sided Cube, White Circle Productions, Studioworks, Base, Revolting and Redweb to name but a few.

Published by Creative England as both a free book and website, One Thing I Know compiles hard-earned insights from creative entrepreneurs in a series of articles aimed at passing down their experience of starting, running and growing a creative company.

The articles cover all the creative sectors and come from both established creatives – including Dave Sproxton (Aardman) Charles Wace (twofour) Spencer Buck (Taxi Studio) and Jim Douglas (Future Publishing) – as well as from 20-somethings whose agencies are just surviving their first few years.

Creative England innovation director Anthony Story says: “If there’s one quote that stands out from working with many creative entrepreneurs, it’s ‘I’d like to talk to someone who’s done it before’. Gaining insight to entrepreneurs who have already navigated the challenges they face, can clarify things in a way 20 business consultants would never achieve. That’s really the inspiration for One Thing I Know.”

The book, designed by Fiasco Design, also contains original artwork from over 30 commissioned UK artists, including Gav Strange, Slumber Bean, Pixillion and Sneaky Raccoon.
