Rush Digital's Danu Abeysuriya was one of the People's Choice winners for Most Creative in digital/data for Idealog and Accenture's Most Creative People. Abeysuriya is one of the rare few tech gurus around who can explain big, hairy concepts like computer vision in layman’s terms.

Here, he talks what makes him creative, finding inspiration and where his best ideas come from.
