There are probably only a few minds recorded in the history of humankind that had the creative complexity of Carl Gustav Jung’s. Psychiatrist, psychoanalyst, artist, and writer, Jung formed some of the most important ideas that shaped our understanding of the mind and its workings. Jung is certainly a brilliant polymath; some of his works are still unpublished, with his Black Books only being released for the first time less than two years ago.


Just scratching the surface of the volumes of work that Carl Jung has created—a rich and enormous body of drawings, paintings, poetry, theories and essays—we see the remarkable span of creative expression that he was capable of. He walked the line between the scientist and artist; simultaneously rational and emotional; studying both mind and soul. For us, this is the very essence of creativity—boundary breaking, visionary and far out beyond all definitions. 


His ideas on the collective unconscious, archetypes, persona and shadow have shaped other creators looking to model and project the human psyche. Our work in storytelling has drawn a lot from Carl Jung’s work to typify brand personalities and project their patterns, values and desires. 


We created this screen-printed T-shirt of Carl Jung as part of a series featuring some of our favourite creators. A ‘creator’—a person looking to influence the world through their creativity—is one of the archetypes in Jungian psychology that we use for storytelling. The creator archetype is special to us as a business because it’s one of the two primary archetypes shaping Public Works. This T-shirt series featuring some remarkable creators is for everyone exploring their creative spark.
