Most Creative People

A former head of business development for creative ad agency BBH, Richard Pierson was keen on finding ways to calm his hectic mind that didn’t feel completely out of touch with everyday life. Meditation, long proven to have positive effects for those who practice it consistently, was the answer. With the help of Tibetan Buddhist monk Andy Puddicombe, the pair founded mobile app Headspace in London in 2010. Their goal: to make mental health a fun journey that integrates technology, creativity, and science in order to make meditation and the pursuit of happiness accessible to everyone.
