1 Arts & Business / Belfast City Council Link Initiative 2007 - 2008 Session 7: Creative Business Selling Avoiding the creative guilt trip… and funding it along the way Justin Magee

2 creativebusinessselling  What are you selling/ providing?  Is it better/ different from the competition?  Is it new or novel?  Does it have the edge?

3 creativeindividuality  Is your personality evident in your product?  Is your product/ service IP protected?  Can you keep ahead of the competition?  Be the only one to provide a different approach to the business your are in

4 creativeguilttrips  It takes time away from core business  It takes money which I don’t have  I have other deadlines -which is most important?  My Boss thinks I am wasting valuable time  I love being creative so it must be wrong!

5 creativeexemption  The creativity process is your core business  Being creative will earn you money and there are other funding opportunities  Creative R&D needs to be balanced with cash flow business  Creative R&D is Tax claimable and can makes leaders from companies = happy boss  To starve creativity is wrong for you and the wider industry

6 24% NI Design consultancies are evolving in discipline : Trans-disciplinary = Creative Promiscuity National average =17% [Design Council 2005] creativebusinessfacts

7 GLOBAL ISSUES 2003- South Korea Government: Launch of an aggressive design policy towards a world leading knowledge based economy by 2010. [others have followed in response] Europe as a nation needs to understand that “it is necessary to invest properly in the development of design as an integral aspect of economic growth” [Thomson M 2004]

8 Business survey 2006; from the hundred most innovative companies and the top four were of course Apple, Google, 3M and Toyota, and what the commentators were saying was that these people were innovative because they were focusing right at the front end of innovation, they were putting a lot of effort in to the discovery end of innovation as opposed to not simply the delivery, or even the creative design phase in the middle, they were looking at unmet needs and emerging trends and change [Meyerson 2007]

9 Research by the Design Council shows that over a ten-year period, UK quoted companies identified as effective users of design out-performed the FTSE 100 by 200 per cent. But too many UK companies spend nothing on design, which shows that design- led planning is not part of mainstream business thinking [Darling 2006] New research from the Design Council confirms that, for SME’s adding value through design is ‘best for boosting competitiveness’ [Design Council 2007]

10 creative R&D case study

11 Homer goes to Chiropractor with a sore back! Dr. Steve: We don't actually crack backs. It's merely an adjustment... OK, you're going to hear a loud cracking sound. Homer: Hey, it feels a little better. Dr. Steve: I thought it might. Now I need to see you three times a week for many years. Home again, Homer hurts his back racking leaves and complains that Dr. Steve didn't help his back. Bart, his son, asks if he had been doing the exercises Dr. Steve prescribed. Homer, of course, hadn't followed the DC's instructions. Meanwhile, Homer falls backward over his trashcan and dents it. The fall relieves his pain. Bart: The trash can must have un-kinked your back. Homer: That's not a trashcan, it's Dr. Homer's miracle spine-o-cylinder, patent pending. Homer opens a clinic in his garage[The Simpsons 2001]

12 creative R&D case study Skeletal Joe spinal mapping method Product design my expertise Clinical practice new R&D Software development future income?

13 Clinician: Here comes one of those Arty people trying to know what he doesn’t know Arty person:How can I convince these experts that what I have might offer benefit? Moment of madness:Join a clinical research group and Do a PhD!!!!! Typical R&D issue problem identification

14 Measuring the profile and form of the skeletal spine is difficult: Loaded + relaxed spine Entire spine Serial monitoring Need for 3D analysis problem identification

16 hypothesis The entire static, loaded spine of a healthy individual can be accurately measured for the purpose of serial monitoring, using: External bony landmarks (+ body markers) 2D digital photography 3D computer modelling

17 objectives To develop a software product and protocol for clinicians Measurement: linear (mm) and angular (° ) dimensions: CobbCentroidHPTCentroid Cervical Spine (neck) Lumber Spine (back) J Magee 2006DE Harrison 2001

18 objectives Dreyfuss & Dempster independent research Dreyfuss describes a family of ergonomic manikins: Joe, Josephine & Joe Jr. Who is/ What is ‘Skeletal Joe’? How might they move? Dempster, W.T., Space requirements of the seated operator. Wright-Patterson Airforce Base, Ohio, 1955, pp. 55–159 Dreyfuss H, Designing for People, New York: Simon & Schuster, 1955, p26-43

19 content development Data collation  White males and females  American, European, Middle Eastern & South African sources  18-65 years old  Normal healthy spines Outcomes  Detailed spreadsheets (M&F)  2D engineering drawings (M)  3D computer model(M).PDF

31 The Issues: University V’s Commercial sector Universities recognise the R&D need (20% of time) Creative Industries need to recognise the R&D value (common practice in science and engineering businesses) Creative Industries Strategy (Invest NI):  initially up-skilling  Content Creation (the knowledge base) These can be achieved through R&D at a % which works for you or your company. creative research&development
