Creativity, innovation, and productivity are the name of the game for a high profile New York design studio. So why do the designers, artists, managers and staff at Lindsey Adelman Studio take time to dive within each day?
An innovative and top-tier design studio, it has been featured in Oprah Magazine, Vogue, City Lights, New York Times and more.
This video interview profiles the studio's work, passion, design, aesthetics, and the practice of Transcendental Meditation (TM) to help boost work ethic, creativity, and productivity amongst its brilliant designers, artists, managers and staff.
Following are a few comments featured in the video:
Sara McBeen, Senior Designer/Production Manager: ''It was the first style of meditation that I had learned that I felt was easy to keep up the practice and sit for 20 minutes, when it was hard for me to do that before.''
Ilya Brukhman, Digital Design Department Center: ''I've noticed things that would have stressed me out didn't have the same power. The less stress there is for everyone individually, the less friction there will be within the organization.''
Lindsey Adelman, Founder and Creative Director: ''After everybody learned meditation and started practicing it, people would say to me, 'I don't take things so personally anymore.' What more could you ask for as a boss? Obstacles aren't really even a topic anymore. People are so about how many different ways can we find to getting to the solution.''
Sara McBeen: ''When you have a group of creative people, there's a lot of energy. I think that meditation plays a role in allowing creativity to flow.''
Mary Savel, Director of Operations/Accounting Manager/HR: ''The culture at the studio is just so different than working for any other company. Employees are much more satisfied coming to work and their retention is really good.''
Lindsey Adelman: ''They feel happier and it allows people to be themselves. TM is super helpful with being a business owner and a creative person. It's the secret door to actually enjoying life.''
