Turn the mundane into opportunities. Grow giant ears.
— Bob Calvano, Director, Global Creative Studios at Merck
Bob Calvano manages a huge team of multidisciplinary talent for Merck. Merck’s global vision is to make a difference in the lives of people through innovative medicines, vaccines, biologic therapies, consumer health and animal products. Bob believes that safe design is not going to make people stop and look. He encourages each member of his in-house team to shift their perspective and expand the realm of possibilities by thinking globally, creating work that makes people stop, look and think. Bob encourages all of us to turn the mundane into opportunities and suggests that to do so we must grow giant ears. Inspiring words from one of us, especially for us.
