Pete Majarich believes people naturally gravitate towards storytelling, whether that’s expressed through design, film, creative technology, an experience or the power of words. He is obsessed with the cross-pollination of platforms, disciplines and ideas. He thinks good creativity is about the cross-pollination of problem-solving, adaptability, collaboration and curiosity. He believes in the creative process and the discipline of craft and coming up with ideas, and all that really matters at the end of the day is doing interesting work with interesting people.
