Remote collaboration is kind of like a long-distance relationship. The farther you are from your partner, the harder it is to communicate. But when you find enough common ground, sparks can fly despite the distance. That’s why we’re fascinated when artists from different backgrounds come together to create something new. Inspired by the success of last year’s experimental mash-ups, we’re returning to Outside Lands to pair up people from different corners of the creative world and see what they can make together. Here’s what to watch for this weekend.
Creative collaborations allow the best and the brightest talent around the world to combine their creative energy, making bold ideas come to life in ways the world has never seen before.
Good news for all of you who want a better way to bring scattered content together and help your team focus on what really matters. Starting today, if you’ve got PDF, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Adobe Illustrator files stored in Dropbox, you can customize how they show up in Paper. Here’s how it works.
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.
