"It took Thomas Edison 10,259 attempts to create a working light bulb— And, yes! that is exactly the kind of people we hire at Moxie Sozo.” Come hear more as Leif Steiner tells great stories. He’ll be speaking this coming Thursday at 10 a.m., Oct. 9th at Portfolio Center. (It’s Free to all students and open to the public).
Leif Steiner, Principal and Creative Director of the Boulder based design and branding firm beliefs have a highest credibility within creative arenas as he imagines,”I look for people who want to achieve greatness in this profession. Being the best is a full time commitment. Success in anything requires an extraordinary amount of work and sacrifice. Nothing less. I hire people who want to be successful.”
Leif in a recent interview with The Denver Egotist backs up his philosophy for when questioned about it being rumored that Moxie Sozo has never lost a client he said,”When agencies win awards or believe their own hype, they get fat and relax. And then they lose their clients to the hoards of younger, more agile agencies who are willing to work a little bit harder, stay up a little bit later, and push the boundaries a little bit further.”
He is a guy that believes in passion exuding greatness. He’s all about freeing creatives from restraints and letting their spirits soar at Moxie Sozo.
A great example of that conviction occurred as one day not long ago Leif went out to lunch, and on the way back he impetuously stopped at the travel agents office and bought 5 tickets. Returning to the office he announced to 5 employees they were going on an adventurous trip and to be ready but not where they were headed. It was a total secret until they all got to the airport several days later- and the next stop— Lima, Peru! So it was off to the Andes and to the upper reaches of the Amazon. Want to stay motivated — well, sign-up for Moxie Sozo and maybe it’ll just happen!?
“There is a Persian term: یارکی // یارکی is a state of readiness; alert and hungry, but not weak. یارکی would be a good description Moxie Sozo.” Don’t miss Leif Steiner this week at Portfolio Center’s seminar series. He has some stories to tell & things to say about doing awesome work.
See you Thursday morning.
