I'm JQ Sirls — I'm a speaker and creative leader working in product development, software development, publishing, and animation. With a passion for essentialist design and childlike imagination, my practice consists of bringing youthfulness into serious works and simplicity into fanciful creations. This duality fuels my lifelong challenge to create a shared enthusiasm in adults and youth on projects that are commonly exclusive to one or the other. I’m confident that if I can find ways for adults once again to see the world through the minds-eye of a child, they’ll feel more inclined to preserve a child’s childlike wonder. In turn, they might even remember and reignite the dreams and aspirations they once had as children.
