TEDxNaperville - Justin Ahrens - See Different, Do Different

See Different. Do Different. As people who wonder, we are built to see the world differently than most. It's one of our unique, innovative traits. We all say we want to be a part of changing the world, but how do you actually accomplish this? Justin Ahrens is principal and creative director at Rule29. His passion for design is rooted in his creative firm's commitment to "making creative matter." For more than 10 years, Ahrens has led Rule29 in its commitment to both great design and helping others think differently about the world around them. Through a collaborative approach in both strategy and design, Rule29's culture is just as important as its work. This is particularly evident by the company's involvement in numerous social causes, including their substantial work in Africa. Justin has also been a consistent voice for the design community as it relates to balancing life, design and business. His obsession for design is only overshadowed by his passion for being home with his wife, Sarah, and their four amazing kids (who think Dad's job is listening to music, drawing pictures and playing on the computer). Ahrens' book, Life Kerning, comes out in fall 2011. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
