Go creatives! As someone who wants to be on a creative team for an advertising company, I think it’s important to remember this…even though some peopl don’t quite get. We know we do and we love it!

If you frequent the design world, chances are you have come across this quote (first used in an Apple commercial in 1997).  More than being inspirational, this quote is liberating and affirming to “creative” people.   Artists feel like they are “one of a kind” and completely individual (and, let’s be honest, that is a fun idea);  but in reality, there is a whole group of people who call themselves “artist” and “designer” and “creative writers” and “musicians” and “engineers” and “crafters” and “creative thinkers” and people who are ok with thinking outside the box…   who all band together under this banner of The Crazy Ones.  Proudly different.  Searching for new ways to look at life and to show others how beautiful this life can be.

Are you a Crazy One and proud?  What is your creative passion?

Lately, I’ve noticed people have been into “literal” things, whether it be literal songs sung to a movie trailer (YouTube) or silly literal logos that I found poking fun at some large companies like Nokia (Nokids – want our phones anymore) and MySpace (NoSpace – for us anymore). But I think these literal music posters , i found through abother WordPress blog, are great! And they would be fun to put in frames and hang on walls for an edgy decorative piece of one of your favorite musical pieces! So neat!

9 Tech Millionaires Under Age 30

I found a link about the 9 Tech Millionaires on another WordPress blog, Ode to Capitalism, and I found it quite interesting because these people weren’t much older than me when they launched these sites! And even more impressive than their noteworthy ages, is that the sites that they are millionaires off of do not require their users to pay a fee to join. So I’m more than positive that without people like me, that enjoy the art of advertising and want to/do work in the field, Mark Zuckerberg and the other young entrepreneurs might not be as successful by means of a paycheck. So you are welcome millionaires! Both for being a member to half of those sites, as well as  making you money!

Tech Mass Comm Gets It

As a December graduate still eager and looking to find work I couldn’t pass up the chance of going to the Texas Tech Mass Communications Career Conference. It was hosted today by several big name alums that were there to help, answer questions and network with juniors, seniors and recent graduates of the Mass Comm college. While I was expecting a simple meet and greet over modest h’orderves, it turned out to be surprisingly beneficial and intriguing. And even though I didn’t leave with a job, I was the last student (or recent alum), there exchanging contact information. I was truly impressed by the alumni that Tech students have to rely on, today. It honestly makes me wonder about other universities as well as other colleges within Tech…do they have it as good as we do?
I guess what I want to say after all this is “Thank you” to everyone I met, and that has been willing to help along the way.
