Can collaboration be curated? How do artists merge disparate styles to conjure a confluence of ideas they wouldn’t have discovered on their own? Every month, It’s Nice That and Dropbox ask pairs of illustrators to create exclusive posters, together. In March, we went behind the scenes to show how two artists used Dropbox Paper to co-create the monthly poster for Nicer Tuesdays. Today, we want to share insights heard at these events, and reveal how the guest speakers collaborated on recent projects. Here’s what we’ve learned so far.
Starting today, Dropbox and the New York Times are teaming up to produce a weekly “Behind the Cover” video series. The series will explore the creative process behind the iconic covers for the New York Times Magazine.
Last month, we traveled to Banff, Canada for The Gathering to talk with marketing leaders from the world’s most-coveted brands. We wanted to find out what it takes to create a cult brand and what elevates a brand from “respected” to “iconic.” While we were there, we had a chance to chat with these leaders to get their insights on creativity. We spoke with Fiasco Gelato’s Chief Idea Officer and CEO James Boettcher to find out how his company creates an environment where collaboration can thrive.
We’re rolling out new refinements in Dropbox Showcase for Professional users. Read more on the Dropbox Business Blog.
Last week, we traveled to Los Angeles to celebrate the opening of the Future Classic x Dropbox Studio, a collaborative space where artists can gather and share ideas, give presentations, and create exclusive live content. We chatted with Founder/CEO, Nathan McLay to learn more about the vision for the new studio and plans for the months ahead.
Some days, teamwork doesn’t feel like an easy alley-oop. After all, collaborators bring different perspectives, different skills, and different personalities to the table. So how do you make sure those differences are a strength, not a source of conflict?
