The Creators Project is a new network dedicated to the celebration of creativity and culture across media, and around the world. At a time in the history of the arts where digital technologies have revolutionized distribution, democratized access, and completely re-imagined the scope and scale with which an artist can create a vision and reach an audience, The Creators Project is a completely new kind of arts and culture channel for a completely new kind of world.

Carlos Meira’s paper sculptures

Under - Advertising, Art, Illustration, Inspiration, Media

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Carlos Meira’s artistic endeavour began when he joined the printmaking course at the School of Fine Arts at Federal University of Rio de Janeiro.

In early 1990, Carlos moved to Portugal where he developed his unique style of paper sculpture. He returned to Brazil in 1996 and settled in Florianopolis where he further strengthened his illustration side. He has held six solo exhibitions and illustrated several books since then.

Carlos Meira has now devoted himself to illustration and paper sculpture having worked as an artist, designer and art director within the advertising industry. He also runs his blog where you can catch-up on his latest work.

Ghost by Marco Brambilla

Under - Art, Inspiration, Media

GHOST is a study of model Natasha Poly. An investigation into the obsessive behaviour of the public eye and it’s lingering effects on those chased and caught by it. The piece utilizes multiple shots, all presented head-on, giving the audience an opportunity to experience the deconstruction of an icon as it strips the beauty out of fashion.

Under - Art, Design, Illustration, Inspiration, Media, Resources

Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce

This is probably one of the best animated illustrated presentations that I came across online recently. Adapted from Dan Pink’s talk at the RSA, illustrates the hidden truths behind what really motivates people at home and in the workplace.

RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) is a registered charity in England and Wales and has been a cradle of enlightenment thinking and a force for social progress for over 250 years.

Our approach is multi-disciplinary, politically independent and combines cutting edge research and policy development with practical action.

We encourage public discourse and critical debate by providing platforms for leading experts to share new ideas on contemporary issues. Our projects generate new models for tackling the social challenges of today and our work is supported by a 27,000 strong Fellowship – achievers and influencers from every field with a real commitment to progressive social change.

Flipboard – your social media magazine on iPad

Under - Design, Media, Technology, Usability

I’d say that the guy in this Flipboard video is boringly serious or seriously boring but I like the way he talks! It’s the second video in past few weeks that I see him in, both about geeky products. The first one was about Square mobile payment system that I mentioned earlier.

And yes, the Flipboard. It’s a crossover between social media and a digital magazine. Just checked the application on my iPad and I too, like many others, liked it very much. Flipboard taking online social media out of its mould into mobile social media, we would see this kind of apps becoming a norm soon. This is something that I highlighted in detail a while ago under ‘Future of Web Design’.

Square mobile payment system

Square mobile payment system

This was evident as mobile platform becoming more accessible. We have seen iPad replacing hotel menus so why can’t the same device be used for paying the bill!

Introduced by Twitter founder Jack Dorsey back in December last year, Square payment system makes it possible to accept payment cards on any (internet enabled mobile) device with an audio input jack.
