Jen Scully: How to Fluff Auras + Lead a Creative Team

While identifying structures, processes, and clear roles and responsibilities are important when running an efficient team--it can also feel stifling. How do we combat this rigidity? What if we instead focused our energy on what matters most in a creative organization? What if we learned what our people are inspired by so we can work better together?

As we approach our 150th anniversary we have started to gather and reflect on past printed materials and promotional items. Seeing everything together, we knew this collection was too cool to keep to ourselves and that we had to bring the collection back to the people that made it all possible. With that, The French Paper Road to 150 Tour was born. An exhibit made up of 30 plus years of historical items will be traveling around the country, piloted by the French family themselves. City by city, the Road to 150 Tour will bring new meaning to the term work and turn.

We are proud to announce that our Road to 150 Tour is making it’s VERY FIRST STOP as a part of this year’s Design Week in Grand Rapids. Brian French will be captaining the Road to 150 van on its maiden voyage to bring 30+ years of French Paper history to town.
