“Creative wanderlust, in all its forms & interpretations. It’s a wonderfully inspiring world out there, truly.”
Amina Horozic, frog San Francisco
“Managing the realities of ‘transparency’ needs to become a strategic imperative for businesses as consumers and ecosystem partners are able to gain increasing insight into supply chains, customer preferences, pricing, cost, and bill of materials information online and in near real time. The Internet is quickly morphing into a ‘Global Microscope,’ which is both an opportunity and threat for businesses depending on how they choose to harness or ignore it.”
Theo Forbath, frog Boston

"Shooting stars. Making wishes. Lester Young. John Coltrane. Nostalgic dreams of Jack Kerouac, John Steinbeck, Charlie Parker and The Beatles. A cold container on the surface of which a drop of water trickles down like a homeless nobody, that contains world's third most popular drink (wikipedia). And some nicotine."
Somaditya Banerjee, frog Bangalore
“I’m passionate about life itself! I adore cooking (Russian, Italian, Japanese cuisine) and love to travel!”
Anna Lapunova, frog Amsterdam

Ailadi Cortelletti, frog Shanghai
“I’m crazy about making brands real through user experiences while redefining human to computer interfaces. I think we’re at the turning point of shaking off old fashions of using and understanding technology, and we’re stepping closer and closer to the point when technology is in fact learning and adapting to the human physiognomy and traits, and not the other way around as we’ve been doing so far.”
Alvaro Marquez, frog Amsterdam
“I’m passionate about finding new ways to solve problems. If everyone else is doing X or Y, I want to find a Z.”
Adam Wrigley, frog New York
“Intelligent, lively, and funny conversations. My insanely energetic kids, husband, and jack russell terrier. Running in New York City. Art in any form, high and low. And the act of sometimes messy but always delicious cooking (both food and ideas). These all help keep me happy and healthy…and who I am.”
Reena Jana, frog New York

Andreea Chelaru, frog Amsterdam
"The power of a magical idea, unique stories emerging from diverse cultures, creativity stemming out of alien environments, infectious smiles and -most recently- the multi sensorial gastronomical experience of eating a red velvet cupcake with vanilla frosting!"

“Most design problems are either solved by creative coding or created by bad code. I enjoy taking on both.”
Robert Tuttle, frog Austin
“As an international designer coming from Brazil and working on different continents, I am passionate about expanding the design profession to emerging geographies.

Rebeca Sa, frog Amsterdam
“My passion is to evoke consideration through what I create using visual and written poetry.”
Michael Evashevski, frog New York

Laura Bordin, frog Milan
“I love to think beautiful things, and have them make sense to people.”
Guus Baggermans, frog Amsterdam
“I feel pasisonate about the thought that social and environmental projects are becoming the new trend in marketing campaigns. All spin and no substance.”
Jo Szczepanska, frog Amsterdam
“Using singular moments to create rich stories. And distilling rich stories into singular moments.”
Montana Cherney, frog San Francisco

I’m here on this planet to get you to say ‘aha!’ If I can bring off the awake moment, I’ve served my purpose.
Denise Gershbein, frog San Francisco

"Being different and chic to me is like an addiction. It applies to my design as well."
Azure Yang, frog Shanghai
"I am passionate about story telling in all its forms and avatars - the myths and legends that are passed on from generation to generation, often deeply rooted in Asian traditions and cultural education. And the lost art of listening - getting strangers to open up and share intriguing anecdotes. I'm intrigued by the artifacts of a great story - from photographs to treasured possessions. And finally, what really gets me excited is trying to figure out the best way to share and retell these stories in a manner that remains authentic and engaging!"
Kajal Vatsa, frog Shanghai
"My passion is to be curious about life, find reasons behind problems and solve for them."
Rachel Xu, frog Shanghai

“Sea kayaking in the San Juan islands.”

Ramprakash R, frog Bangalore
"I get excited whenever I'm on the road, traveling across the world and connecting with people who come from completely different backgrounds than me. In fact, I feel most comfortable when I'm in a foreign country, and I have to rely on my instincts (which are sometimes wrong, but that's the fun part!) to understand the surroundings, the culture and any type of behavior that comes across as 'bizarre'."
Emily Chong, frog Shanghai
“What gets me up at night is the realization that there are wholly new, untapped research directions—I usually spend the rest of the night figuring out how to get there. By the time the dawn has kicked in, I know the optimal shape of the team, the ideal location, and who is willing to stump up the cash to make it happen. Admittedly, the other thing that gets me up is jet lag.”
