The Innovator | Creative Types

Posted on June 30th, 2019

    I took the creative personality profile test that Adobe has on its website. I got the following results, which I find remarkably true and insightful.

    I’d love to know what creative type you are. It’s a really quick test: mycreativetype.com

    Contentment in the Journey of the Continuing Story

    Words Can Be Like Music

    Posted on April 15th, 2019

    My friend sent me this screenshot. I don’t know where he got it from, but I think it’s great! The first thought I had was about some of my favorite films, TV shows, and plays as I'm a huge fan of Aaron Sorkin’s dialogue. Contemplating further, I aspire to put such thought into my writing...



    Authenticity, Connection, and Sense of Purpose

    Posted on March 30th, 2019

    A former employee of mine just sent me this. It means a lot that perhaps he misses some of this from me; or at least that he sees the potential for me to invest in these qualities...

    Regardless, it encourages me as I reflect on where I choose to work, and with whom I choose to work for. I’m grateful for leadership that holds to ethos like these.


    Authenticity and rapport with the team. Connection of each team member to the bigger picture of the organization. Caring for and growing the individual infusing purpose beyond the temporary.


    thoughts from Gandhi about the Beatitudes

    Posted on February 20th, 2019

    We’re thinking about next calendar year and what series topics we might schedule. One of our thoughts is the Sermon on the Mount. I really like the idea. I have had this card at my desk for years. It’s a great reminder of what is worth upholding

    Gratitude soaked, Spirit filled life
    Arrange my my life with such perspective. Contentment and joy.
    That is eternal life.

    living with greater intentionality

    A friend shared this article and I really love it. As we all look ahead to 2019, we should commit to living these thoughts with greater intentionality.


    Gobos for Stars

    Posted on December 5th, 2018

    So I was just consulting one of my clients about gobo choices for a design I coached them on. I’ve been asked about gobos a lot over the years. See past posts (such as http://egwolfe.com/post/some-of-my-favorite-gobos or http://egwolfe.com/post/gels-and-gobos or http://egwolfe.com/post/a-note-to-producers-about-the-lighting-cue-sheet) for further thoughts. You can search by hashtags such as #lightingdesign on the right side of the page to make searches through old posts easier. Anyway, I just gave the following advice:

    71054 is a good natural look of stars. If you had a cyc, it'd be a no brainer. But it should still look good even the black traveler. I’ve used it before. But I can’t recall for sure if that was on the main traveler which is gray worth the mid traveler which is black.
    77884 (called "snow") gets the feel of a star field and shows up better on the black because there's more light.
    If I had them (and we used to) I'd be using 71054. I'd pull the snow out as a backup option only. You know me, always having ideas in my back pocket ;)

    My Thoughts About Dropbox Paper

    Posted on November 18th, 2018

    Great tool for creating proposals and reports; for managing and delegation of tasks and projects; and for collaboration and ideation with live editing by multiple users both inline and with comments. It’s simple, clean, and intuitive. I love the assignable tasks. The mobile apps are good.

    I wish it had a computer app instead of simply web app. I wish the filing structure was better. I wish there was a handwriting/drawing feature for note-taking, diagramming, and annotating. I wish to-dos integrated with Siri/Reminders.
