For most Advertising Creatives creativity does not stop at 5:30PM Friday, most have some kind of creative outlet outside of work whether that be writing children's books, tshirt lines or even setting up charities.
Digitally a growing trend that I am starting to see is Digital Creatives using the internet as their canvas. The type of art that I am most interested in is when Creatives are creating cultural statements through their pieces and capturing the attention of the masses. Here are some of my favourite;
1. Jeff Greenspan (Creative Director at BBDO)
Urban Traps (Hipster Traps)
The Most Exclusive Website (Mike Lacher and Chris Baker)
LetterBombing (Chris Baker)
2. Mike Lacher - Creative Technical Manager - Google Creative Labs
Mikala Bierma Youtube Channel
Waiting for Bieber
3. Ji Li (Creative Director at Facebook)
The Bubble Project
4. Chris Baker (Writer at Google Creative Labs)
The Likeable Constitution (Jeff Greenspan)
The Call to Action Generator
As I start to learn Photoshop and Coding I am hoping to start making some of my ideas come to life. Watch this space!
