Most companies attempt to build their internal cultures using dry mission statements and core values posted on walls by the water cooler, but the end result is often the usual soul crushing hierarchy and dumbed-down, “safe” work.

Captains of Industry, a creative shop in Boston, took a different approach – a Manifesto that brings together ideas and designs that embody what it means to be a Captain. In this session, Captains of Industry co-founder and creative director, Ted Page, provides a guided tour of key aspects of the Manifesto that have helped form the company’s unique culture and philosophy.
