020. Hold It Together: Cooperation, Collaboration and the Fight Against Throwing People Under the Bus, Part 1

As artists and designers, we are always working with other people; but how do we do it well? People aren’t always the easiest things to work with or for, and we can’t promise that every day will be a good day with plenty of coffee and sunshine. So, what is cooperation? How is it different than collaboration? And how do we actually hold it all together and not throw everyone else under the bus?

During this first part we unpack cooperation, collaboration and what may be entailed when we use these seemingly innocuous words. We all want to work better with others and do great work, but it’s hard, and we try to help you see the whole landscape as you navigate the terrain.

So sit back with a friend, introduce yourself to Dr. Snacksmell and dig into another episode with Ryan and Garreth.
