Good news: the lecture series Creative Mornings is coming to Chicago; it kicks off June 24 with Jim Coudal of Coudal Partners. It’s a creative/design-centric, 20-minute talk followed by a 20-minute Q&A, a bit like Pecha Kucha for early risers. If you aren’t an early riser, or have to work between 8:30-10, they put the talks up on Vimeo, which is how I learned about it. Here’s the great Milton Glaser from Creative Mornings New York:
