Below is an excerpt from:
"How the artist visiting our startup office changed my life"
by Therese Sivertsson

"In early 2016, Emily (at Blinkist) received an email:

“Hi, my name is Jason Sturgill and I’m an artist from Portland. I just started using your app and I love it. Would you be interested in sponsoring me as an artist? I’ll create illustrations based on the blinks I read and share them across my social channels.”

This is how our Berlin, Germany startup met its first artist in residence."

And that's how I ended up getting asked to fly to Berlin to create artwork for their new office space and to work with their teams and give my perspective on what they were working on. It was an amazing trip that in the end felt highly beneficial for everyone involved. 

Thanks to everyone at Blinkist for the opportunity!
