Morning Person of the Day: Lukas Jakob Hafner
Meet Lukas Jakob Hafner, Master Maker at booncon and 14x CreativeMornings/Helsinki attendee!
What is your first and/or most meaningful CreativeMornings experience?
It’s a repeating experience but I love the icebreaker tags. They are not very common in Finland and as people here tend to be a little reserved the tags are amazing for getting to know people. We’ve had so many laughs over what people wrote and it also helps getting to understand different cultures when people explain why they wrote what they wrote.
Describe the work that you do and the impact you’re trying to make.
I am an entrepreneur and my job title is Master Maker. I like to create. My background in design and coding wants me to create meaningful solutions to any problem I face. I believe in iterations and quick fixes. Solve problems right away and then gradually improve the solutions. This is something I would love others to learn. Just do, we need more ideas coming to life.
What inspires your creativity?
I love to take anything I do as a challenge. As soon as I try solving a problem my creativity starts flowing. Usually I start looking at other people’s work to get a general sense of direction and understand the common patterns. After that I just spin my ideas over and over in my head so I can “deal” with it in the short moment before or after falling asleep. That is when my imagination goes wild and out of a sudden things make sense :)
What would you consider your superpower? Why and how do you use it for good?
I am all about the nitpicky details. I see things that many others miss. It’s like I have a sixth sense for broken pixels and wrong colours. I know, it would make a compelling movie.. Anyhow, I use it to challenge people in their work and bring the best out of them. I also make kick-ass pizza to make up for when I take things too far. ;)
Tell me something about yourself that I can’t find on Google.
I love meaningful discussions. Nothing is better then going into an argument knowing you are right and then coming out of it having changed your point of view. We need to be open and jump over our ego. Only then the better argument wins and our world is a better place.
