These are the first two issues of Creativ Magazine, an ambitious project to celebrate creativity in all its forms. In a day and age where many print publications are going belly up and others switching over to being completely digital, it’s a bold move.
The magazine highlights creative people in sports, music, painting, photography, film, and much more.
This is how the describe their mission in the inaugural issue . . .
“Now – more than ever – we need incredible creativity, innovation, and ideas to fuel inspiration and move us boldly forward in new ways. Our world is full of people doing incredible things every day. People who are advancing us forward, inspiring us, disrupting the status quo, and changing the perception of life as we know it.”
Creativ has a great website as well. They have established an online community prior to starting the magazine and want the two to work together.
I like the feature on the paper-cutting work of Maude White. Her images are so lifelike and three-dimensional. It is absolutely incredible to see such precise and delicate work being made out of paper.
Blake Brinker, the publisher and co-founder of Creativ says it best . . .
“Curiosity drives imagination, imagination sparks creativity, and creativity manifests solutions, inspiration, and wonder. Creativity is the realization of human potential.”
So let’s celebrate creativity in print and online. Let’s nourish it and develop it. And let’s look for this magazine on the book store shelf.
