The path to creativity is a zigzag ft Google Creative Lab's Creative Director Tea Uglow by Pitch Podcast published on 2018-05-07T07:23:29Z Tea Uglow is Creative Director at Google’s Creative Labs and works in Sydney. Google Translate once translated her role as ‘experimental person in charge at Google’ where she runs a small team at the intersection of digital technology, arts and culture working on innovative, global, creative and collaborative projects. In this episode of #PitchPodcast Pitch guest editor and cofounder of Utopia Nadya Powell interviews Tea. They talk about Tea’s childhood obsession with drawing and how interactivity formed a key part of her art as a student at Oxford’s Ruskin School. Tea discusses the importance of moving from being settled to being unsettled throughout your life and career; recounting a multifaceted career which includes her working in a bar, doing book art degree, learning how to code and freelancing at Google for a year and a half. We learn that following a wiggly path is sometimes the best thing to do, as when you do finally end up where you’re supposed to be you’re ready for it. Tea is a trans woman and talks about the project of inclusion and diversity, challenging cultures and the importance of allowing people to bring a perspective that is not in the room into the room.
