Art directors are becoming animators. Print designers are becoming web designers. Illustrators are also photographers and editors who also shoot film. They are the New Creatives, and we are celebrating their work.

Art directors are becoming animators. Print designers are becoming web designers. Illustrators are now photographers who also edit and shoot film. Adobe has launched a new campaign, I Am The New Creative, that highlights the work of these new creatives: profiling one creative each day and using their amazing imagery to “take over” every social media channel that touches Adobe’s creative tools and technologies.

With the Creative Cloud our product teams have removed the barriers to creative expression: Designers can build parallax HTML5 experiences. Illustrators are making EPUBs. Photographers are using their cameras and Adobe technology to become filmmakers. And coders have the tools to make beautiful design.

It’s an amazing and interesting time in our industry; people have the ability to self-express, in any discipline, without boundaries. I Am The New Creative promotes the amazing work our community is producing and marks this moment in time as a movement and a celebration of creativity.

One of the most incredible aspects of this program has been watching creative professionals merge their mediums and their portraits to produce “New Creatives” versions of themselves.

There’s something magical about the compositions. As a designer there’s always a part of me in my work, but to personalize my work in this way, to make my work more representative of me, presents an alternative perspective. All of the artists we’re working with are enjoying this experience and are appreciative of our desire to promote their amazing creative output.

5,000 Year Journey

Ogilvy & Mather and Director Jonathan Notaro of Brand New School are calling out the history of humanity’s tooth-cleaning habits with their spot for Philips Sonicare, “Stick with Technology” for their Odyssey campaign. The time-travelling spot raises the question of why, at a time when human beings adopt technology to every element of their lives at an exponential rate, does 72% of the US population continue to scour our teeth with what are essentially bristles on a stick?

Read more

The spot was created as an “Odyssey” through time, with detailed attention to determining the appropriate eras and vignettes to shoot through the time warp, as well as the accompanying sets, locations, acting and wardrobe.

“We wanted the actor to literally ‘brush his way through time’,” said Notaro. “So we practically tethered the actor to the camera/dolly and dragged them through the various period-specific scenes.”

The Philips films were shot on location in Budapest, including a Victorian train station with a locomotive, as well as on studio lots with constructed medieval sets. In order to get the most realistic results while minimizing the use of CG, the wardrobe animation was shot on green screen mannequins with garments run across them. The team also developed other complex animations using stop motion techniques at the BNS film studio stateside.

Conceptual direction for RC Cars of Boston landing page.

Nearly 4 months into the new year and it has been very productive so I wanted to highlight a couple of interests. Just before the doors closed on 2012 I was fortunate to reengage with a local entrepreneur who opens businesses that many of us just dream about. Naturally anyone creative would want to be a part of his vision/s so I met with owner Ray Willis to discuss ideas surrounding his new business – RC Cars of Boston. We collaborated previously on his identity for Spadafora Choppers so RC Cars of Boston purposefully ties strongly to the Spadafora brand. Spadafora Choppers was a big success so I’m hoping as this new identity continues rolling out it will be matched with equal excitement and praise.

For the past few years I’ve also been working with a great organization named Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. It’s a dedicated team of highly motivated individuals coming together for a great cause. Colleagues I’ve worked with in the past recommended the opportunity which was a chance to give back and help those less fortunate. My charge was to help call to attention and promote an annual sock drive also supported by the Boston Red Sox. I designed a unique logo “One Size Fits All” which was applied to posters, direct mail and online. Additionally I’ve worked with BHCHP to design their marathon T-Shirts each year so it’s more than rewarding to produce creative that really makes a difference.

ADC Young Guns For Good

The Art Directors Club has today launched ADC Young Guns For Good to connect top-notch international creative talent with charitable causes to help bridge the gap between the quality of work these charities are doing, and the quality of creative representing them in marketing materials.

The inaugural project for ADC Young Guns For Good is a partnership with Google Creative Lab through which ADC Young Guns artists will design $1 million worth of advertising that will run in USA TODAY to benefit charities involved with Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.

Google Creative Lab in New York, recent winner of the USA TODAY 2012 Print Competition, has elected to donate the prize – $1 million in advertising media spend – to focus on charities benefiting Hurricane Sandy relief.

Empire State Relief Fund, Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund and DonorsChoose.org will each be paired up with one ADC Young Gun to develop and execute a full-page color ad in USA TODAY in April. ADC Young Guns will have the opportunity to express interest in participating in the program through March 22.

It is a new publication by Aart van Bezooyen and Paula Rache.

It’s Not Easy Being Green: Two Designers Exploring Sustainability Worldwide is a new publication by Aart van Bezooyen and Paula Rache that brings together six months of making new friends, photographing local impressions and collecting materials. Together with almost 60 designers, entrepreneurs and change-makers from Brazil, Argentina, Chile, New Zealand, Australia, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Singapore, Malaysia and Japan they are sharing personal experiences, project examples and local culture to inspire and enable a more sustainable future.

Aart and Paula started the project in 2011 to get a better understanding of the fuzzy concept of sustainability and its role and importance for design. During 184 days, they were exploring a dozen countries to discover sustainable solutions in materials and design worldwide. During their journey they offered inspiring lectures and hands-on workshops to teach and learn about the local issues and practices of designers.

Read more

“The book is a MUST for everybody who considers herself or himself a designer of the future,” commented Zuzanna Skalska, a recognized trend researcher who is one of the first readers. With this book Aart and Paula are bringing together the people, places and things they discovered during their travels to share their experiences. Personal contributions from the designers, entrepreneurs and change-makers they met are combined with local impressions and inspiring items discovered along their way. With designers making skateboards out of bamboo, researchers improving packaging products, children doing green studies in the jungle and surprising ways of (re)using materials, this book is an encouraging sustainable snapshot of what is happening in the world today.

Proceeds from the book will go to the Viva con Agua, a charity organization that supports people with clean drinking water worldwide.

An article within The Avant/Garde Diaries, a digital interview magazine.

The Avant/Garde Diaries, a digital interview magazine which documents personal views on the avant-garde, has recently interviewed Dawn Goldworm, the Scent Director of the Paris and NYC-based olfactory branding company 12.29. The company produces delicate and strategic elixirs of scents and places them in new contexts, manipulating environmental experiences, conjuring memories, and eliciting behavioral associations.

Read more

Dawn herself is actually synesthetic, which in her case means she sees colors when she thinks of letters, numbers, words, memories, and sounds, and associates colors and textures to smells. “If a brand associates with the color blue and the texture of silk, I can make the scent smell like the color blue and the texture of silk,” she says.

Dawn considers her ability a blessing. In “The Scent of Colours: An Artist’s Blessing” she discusses the concept of using a common element or sense to interpret another, and discusses how she applies her synesthesia to create olfactory experiences.

Open House + Reception

A heartfelt thank you goes out to everyone who is part of George Gabin’s – Student Retrospective Fundraiser. Over the past week we’ve collected a total of 65 pieces of original artwork and creative from over 50 exceptionally talented artists. The show has been hung with care and you’ll leave awestruck thanks to the talents of Debra Olin and Greg Kitterle.

Sunday, December 4th is the last day of the show which is an initiative and fundraiser to celebrate a master, a mentor and a friend to many. The show/Open House opens at 12:00pm and the Reception will begin at 2:00pm where the culinary talents of Crystal Paris Brown will be revealed. Although the show ends at 5:00pm I hope to extend the offerings online by posting all the work with additional details to follow.

We hope to have George downstairs to the Gallery between the times of 3:00 – 3:30pm. Please try to be punctual and relax with refreshments and fantastic finger foods that will be available at your leisure. I’ve also created a looping slideshow of images paced with music that will give you a sneak preview to George’s show in February at the Chase Young Gallery. Next to the slideshow will be a book to write something special that you’d like to share with George.

If you were able to contribute to the show please try to be present when the reception closes at 5:00pm so you can depart with your artwork if it hasn’t sold. If you can’t be present I’ll store the artwork at my home until we can arrange a day/time to get together.

Thank you again and I’m looking forward to seeing everyone at the show.

Sincerely,

Michael.

George Gabin - Student Retrospective | 2011

Brickbottom Gallery – December 2, 3, 4 | Open House December 4, 2011 12:00 – 5:00pm.

Happy Thanksgiving! I would like to take this time to let everyone know that this is the last call for artwork for the show at the Brickbottom Gallery and we have a lot of space to fill. I will be at the gallery this coming Saturday and Sunday (November 26 + 27) from 12:00pm – 2:00pm to collect and store the art for the show. Whether you’re attending the Open House or intend to display a piece of art please send me an email letting me know. I will need a headcount to properly prepare the space to hang the show and I’ll also need to send you a Loan Agreement form to fill out. Knowing the amount of attendees will also help with organizing refreshments for the Open House on December 4th. Below is a brief description + all the links and content you need to participate and stay informed. Thank you.

Happy Holidays! The Brickbottom Gallery will be having a special weekend retrospective of students work to celebrate a special man, a passionate painter, a great teacher and a dedicated mentor, George Gabin. The goal is to reunite students and alumni who know George and to have an opportunity to display a piece of your work that beautifully captures your creative abilities. The show will be a fundraiser with a portion of the proceeds going toward materials for George’s show at the Chase Young Gallery opening in February 2012. A catalog for the show is currently being designed and will be available soon.

Drop off dates for the show will be at the Brickbottom Gallery on Saturday November 26th & Sunday November 27th from 12:00pm – 2:00pm. There will be a small label for you to fill out indicating your name, city + state, title of your work, price to purchase and year you went to Montserrat (optional). We will need assistance gathering the work and hanging the show so if we can get a few more bodies to help out during the hanging + drop off dates to make sure the work is stored properly with the form/label completed it would be helpful.

Architectural and Fine Art Photography

Bruce T. Martin is an American fine art photographer who uses photography to document the world, explore perceptions, and question our viewpoints. After graduating from Syracuse University in 1977, he began working as a Historical Preservation photographer, using photography to help put endangered buildings on the National Register of Historic Places. His photographs are in a number of private and public collections and have been exhibited throughout the U.S. and Central America. Today, along with exhibiting his fine art photography projects, he is a leading architectural photographer, making photographs for the nation’s foremost architects, designers, and publications.

Read more

His book, Look Close See Far, A Cultural Portrait Of The Maya , published by George Braziller, Inc., NYC, is a collection of images and ideas gathered while traveling throughout the Maya region of Central America. Since 1987, he has taken more than 10,000 photographs over a range of landscapes and attitudes in an attempt to make a distinctive portrait of this singular culture. These reveling images are of the Maya Indians and region of Central America, an area both beautiful and complex in its nature. It is a place where the delicate balance between society and the environment dominates life and challenges one’s view of reality. Look Close See Far, A Cultural Portrait Of The Maya blends a unique mosaic of visual details to create a fresh perspective on the Maya’s endangered worldview and disappearing legacy.

Watch this video on how future technology will help people make better use of their time, focus their attention, and strengthen relationships while getting things done at work, home, and on the go. There’s a nod to technology Apple has helped proliferate, with interfaces that resemble those seen in easy-touch smartphones and tablet computers. There is also the ability to manipulate graphics projected off the screen with hand motions, as seen in the movie Minority Report. Such technology exists, but is still being developed for commercial use.

While the theme of the video is “productivity,” it’s tied to the underlying assumption that such hyper-connectivity and always-on features will drive the performance of knowledge workers to deliver even more value to their businesses.

Creating an amazing art book for the cancer charity maggie's

Memories will look at the thoughts and experiences of individuals who have survived cancer, as well as those of people who have lost loved ones. There will be ten stories inside, each looking at one person’s recollection of a particular day in the struggle against cancer. For each of these ‘memories’ a dozen leading artists, illustrators and designers will be creating their own visual response through their art. Two further stories will go ‘open brief’ and we’ll be inviting creatives worldwide to make their own images to accompany the text. The best submissions will go into the book.

That makes for 12 touching stories, and 144 smashing pieces of artwork.

It wasn’t until college when Jared started working for his college newspaper that he really got bitten by the bug. “I fell in love with photography and completely immersed myself in it. I was on the track to become a photojournalist and that is in fact what I did for a number a years. I thought I wanted to be Eugene Richards or Sebastão Salgado and tried my best to emulate them, but over the years I started developing my own voice and now my work looks and feels nothing like theirs.”

Boston has a checkered history when it comes to racial issues. For a while I had wanted to do a project that looked not only at racial division but also socio-economic status. I was curious as to how Boston and it’s surrounds dealt with these issues. Mass Ave. is a street that I, like many Bostonians, frequent all the time, but rarely all at once. It wasn’t until I decided one day to drive Mass Ave. from it’s beginning at Edward Everett Square in Dorchester to it’s finish in lush Lexington that I realized this was a perfect vehicle, no pun intended, to begin to explore these issues.

Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being.

“Steve Jobs was unlike any other,” the world body said through a spokesperson. “He saw what others did not. He believed above all else in the power of human ingenuity – to create ‘tools’ that people could use, that would not only improve our lives but, quite literally, change the world. He was a truly global force.

Robert A. Iger, president and CEO of the Walt Disney Company, released a statement Thursday on Steve Jobs’ passing, calling him “a great friend as well as a trusted advisor.”

“Steve was such an ‘original,’ with a thoroughly creative, imaginative mind that defined an era. Despite all he accomplished, it feels like he was just getting started. With his passing the world has lost a rare original, Disney has lost a member of our family, and I have lost a great friend. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Laurene and his children during this difficult time,” Iger said.

Whether shooting beauty or the more bizarre, there is a dramatic, at times dark, mood to Conor’s work, and it has evolved into his distinct style of photography. Conor’s ability to tell a story through a single image perhaps stems from his background in theater and set design, where he says he finds a lot of his inspiration.

Read more

On set, Conor takes time to capture what’s beautiful & important about the subject- the artistry of the fashion or the lines of a product- in a way that’s consistent with the brands identity. His vision for each shoot as a photographer is clear, as is his vision for a collaborative, supportive industry.

He approaches each shoot with a specific concept, precise lighting, and methodical camera work, but also with a contagious energy and optimism for what’s ahead. The result- a richness to his images that sets him apart.

The Art Directors Club

The exhibition, organized by Massachusetts College of Art and Design (MassArt), draws from an extensive archive of arresting and fearless international public health announcements, and presents a comprehensive overview of the diverse visual strategies employed by government agencies, community activists, grassroots organizations, and motivated citizens to educate the local population. From lands ranging from Papua New Guinea to Denmark, the posters demonstrate the different approaches used for discussion of a socially complex subject. The messages in Graphic Intervention (graphicintervention.org) deftly champion pertinent sociopolitical issues—disease research and eradication, world health, international relations, sexual education, social prejudices and discrimination—in a remarkable way.

“The Art Directors Club is extremely proud to host this remarkable exhibition,” said Brian Collins, chairman, chief creative officer at COLLINS:, New York and ADC board member who helped organize the event. “It is a cohesive selection of amazing posters, presenting an overview of diverse creative strategies employed by designers in many countries who worked within their own cultural perspective in response to AIDS as a public health emergency. In each country, the messages to raise awareness and encourage preventative behavior vary significantly to best serve the intended audience. These posters have played a significant role in promoting AIDS awareness and safe sex education across cultures, and are examples of how designers have used their talents to make a better world.”
