Collaboration can be hard even when you’re sitting in the same room. So what happens when it has to cross dimensions? We had a chance to find out when It’s Nice That asked digital artists Anny Wang and Tim Söderström to team up with illustrator Klas Ernflo. It’s the latest collaborative experiment in a series that asks artists to team up and create a limited edition poster for the monthly Nicer Tuesdays events in London.
If you’ve watched any movies or TV recently, you’ve probably seen motion design in action. Think about the giant red letters in the Stranger Things opening credits, moving together to the pulse of the show’s foreboding theme music. Or recall the sprawling, three-dimensional map that kicks off every episode of Game of Thrones.
Team meeting notes, creative briefs, project plans: You’re probably using the same types of docs over and over again. But pulling one together—tracking down the last doc, copying and pasting into a new one, stripping out the old project’s info—is an annoying, repetitive chore. So today, we’re making your work easier by introducing one of the most requested Dropbox Paper features: the ability to turn any doc into a shareable template.
This year, It’s Nice That and Dropbox have been partnering to champion creativity. Every month, we invite two artists to develop a limited edition poster by collaborating in Dropbox Paper. And this month, It’s Nice That asked illustrators Marion Deuchars and Anna Kövecses to combine their talents.
At the South by Southwest Conference & Festivals, we’ve had the chance to hear experts weigh in on topics ranging from brand innovation to next generation customers. We also got to watch creative energy and collaboration in action, as teams of artists co-created live murals, each one spotlighting a different cause. Here are a few highlights and takeaways from our week in Austin.
Every Spring, Austin, Texas becomes a mecca for artists of all kinds—and provides a rare opportunity to explore what they can create together. At this year’s South by Southwest Conference, we’ve asked a few of our favorite artists to join forces for great causes. We’re giving them a space to showcase their activism through art—and this weekend, you’ll be able to watch their ideas come to life on the streets of Austin.
