For all of us pursuing creativity, there’s nothing more valuable than having a mentor – someone who has been there before, blazed a new trail for themselves, inspired others… and is ready to share. That’s why we’re super thrilled about this new opportunity to get just that: mentorship and a successful launch for those who dare to put themselves out there. Samsung has teamed up with four massively talented people from the fields of film, food, music and photography, and they’re giving aspiring creatives in the UK and Republic of Ireland the chance to be mentored by them, get their hands on some of Samsung’s latest tech and even produce a Sky 1 HD series about their launch. They’re calling it Launching People, and we’re hoping one of those people is you. [Read more...]

Join In On the Photoshop Battles

Thursday 10.18.2012 , Posted by

Photoshop was one of my favorite procrastination tools in college. Anytime I had an important paper to write or test to study for, I would use it to superimpose my head on to Sports Illustrated swimsuit models’ bodies for Spring Break motivation. Unfortunately I never reached the skill level of these talented Redditors. If you are a photoshop expert or just enjoy the magical humor that photoshoppers bring, allow me to introduce you to an amazing sub-reddit: r/photoshopbattles. [Read more...]

StudioVox: Connecting the Creative/Contest for $200!

Monday 04.09.2012 , Posted by

One of the most difficult things for an artist to master today is keeping up in the digital age, and that means getting their work out to the masses (and that certain someone who can buy/pay them for their work). I’ve spoken to artists who either have no clue of where to be on the Internet, or don’t have the time to keep up with 9 different profiles across the creative portfolio landscape. Creating art and producing quality work is hard enough without having to promote, submit, and constantly stay up on the ever changing digital landscape of art, photography, and design blogs. The list of sites to promote your work is massive, so which do you choose? Where is your audience? Where do you even begin? StudioVox, looks to help you with that. [Read more...]

Nike Ramps Up Their Social Media: Video Contest

Wednesday 06.08.2011 , Posted by

Nike’s new ad campaign ‘The Chosen’ brings attention to a host of sports fields the company has long neglected. Their campaign launch video features some slick skateboarding, BMX, surfing and snowboarding, all filmed in the dark of night.

What truly sets this campaign apart, though, is it’s heavy reliance on social media by the large corporation. The campaign launch video (shown below) premiered 3 days before it’s traditional media air date during the NBA finals, clearly showing a significant investment by the company, financially and in focus, into the quickly growing social media market. More specifically it demonstrates one of the most recognizable brands in the world placing a higher value on new media than traditional media. [Read more...]
