We could have chosen a business-like name, one with the word "Learn" in it or something with a big "E" in the title, but that wouldn't reflect who we are. The word Pinched Head, (pronounced \ˈpinched\ \ˈhed\) is a noun that derives its origin from Greek and signifies "someone who displays great creativity in communicating complex ideas to the masses." It was often said of Plato and Aristotle that they were the greatest "Pinched Heads" of their era. ...okay, okay... we're kidding.
The name really came about when we were first getting involved with digital design. We were tasked with putting together an online photo directory and someone in our team had PhotoShop.The result? — a directory of photos that looked like something from a fun-house. Our heads were pinched so that our brains were really huge and our faces really squished. Why do I tell you this? Because at Pinched Head we believe that learning has to include a sense of exploration and discovery. It starts with a need to do something and provides a creative place to be gain experience within the context of the learning.
