Every Friday around lunchtime, Helium Creative opens its studio for an eat-and-greet with local creative professionals. It's called Inspirational Friday, and guest speakers are invited to share what inspires them (and hopefully inspire the audience). Think of it as a TED Talk for your lunch break. Previous guests have included structural engineers, visual artists, and media buyers. This Friday, local artist Todd Traxler will chat with guests from noon to 1 p.m. Ten to 20 people show up every Friday. For those who forget to brown-bag it, One Sun Emporium will be on-site selling Brazilian food, and there are typically a few slices of pizza courtesy of the host. Helium Creative is a Fort Lauderdale-based, full-service design agency that will celebrate its ten-year anniversary in January. Guests must RSVP by emailing [email protected]. The studio is located at 500 NW First Ave. in Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-333-8900, or visit heliumcreative.com.
