The SVA IxD first-years were lucky enough to have a weeklong workshop with Matt Jones and Jack Schulze from BERG! They’re like a synchronized Batman & Robin team, armed with Haribo snacks and Posca markers, all rolled up into a generative bundle of energy.

In other words, it’s been awesome. And to see the full potential of post-its as powerful tools in ideating has been inspirational for my post-it note obsessed self. Sad to see them go back to their motherland… but they’ve managed to incept us with their BERGisms, so I have a hunch that they’ll be with us in spirit.
