James Turner is the co-founder of Glimpse – a collective which believes that creativity can be used for more than just selling stuff. In our conversation, we discuss some of Glimpse’s campaigns such as the launch of Choose Love physical stores, which sold essential items to help refugees across the world and a Kickstarter campaign that saw every single advert in a London tube station replaced with pictures of cats – with an underlying social cause. James also reflects on his time before Glimpse, heading up communications for Greenpeace UK and he highlights the importance of creativity in shaping a positive vision of the future.
