  • Create new service models and attractive products for clients.
  • Prototype innovative products or services and outlining a customer-centric development plan.

⏱ When a Design Sprint class shows you the reality about contracts.

Mar 21, 2019

By Milene Amoriello Spolador, Tax and business lawyer | Legal Designer |Design thinker (Brazil)

Last month I had the last class of a Design Sprint course I did here in Curitiba - and I have to say that it was a day when I heard truths.

In the last hours of the course our teacher asked us to suggest a theme so she could show us some facilitation techniques. I was the only lawyer in the class, so I put the subject contracts on the table and to my surprise it was accepted. So the following question was written in yellow letters on the board:

How to improve the experience with contracts?

And was at this time, dear reader, that the truth came forth as clear as the sun.

The group was made up of people of all ages and from a variety of backgrounds: designers, entrepreneurs, developers, directors of technology companies, photographers, people planning, post-sales, service, ie people involved with contracts of the most diverse forms, but all with very similar pains in relation to the...

📣We want to hear your story! Here's ours (read inside)

Mar 04, 2019

Tessa's here! By now you should know what we do at Legal Creatives, but do you know why we do what we do? So let me share my story with you. I will also share 3 lessons from my creative journey. And then if you feel inspired to share your story, I would absolutely love to know your story too.

First lesson: Don’t aim to be the best, be different, be yourself. 

In life, sometimes we don’t know which direction to take and for lack of better ideas, we take the path that is offered to us. Like you, I blended in the mold of a traditional law career. Until I decided it was time to create my own mold. And to create one for all of us that seek a new approach, with Legal Creatives.

See, 3 years ago, I was at a crossroads, torn between a traditional legal career and an innovative one. My research on creativity in the law was said to be very promising, and yet I was scared to leave the traditional path. Taking one step...
