The inspiration of the digital era
The creative class
We recently came across “The Creative Class” through Vimeo’s Staff Picks. All of us here have been hugely inspired by the stories… The videos and website are beautifully made and when combined with the legendary creatives featured in the videos, it becomes a truly inspirational piece of work.
“The Creative Class of MMXIV is our selection of today's influential people within the creative industry, sharing their thoughts, musings and opinions on their own creativity, the industry and how technology is changing it all.”
The series discusses the influence of the digital era across the creative industry. As we know, over the last few years, technology has advanced us to levels we couldn’t have imagined 10 years ago. From having one phone per house, if you were lucky, to billions owning mobiles and smartphones, easily gaining access to the rest of the world through the Internet. The way we work and communicate has changed drastically.
There is no doubt the digital era has made design process faster. However, the computer can't do everything but as a tool, it has elevated design into a whole new era of its own.
