In a fireside chat with Salesforce co-CEO Marc Benioff, Dropbox CEO Drew Houston opened up about values, company culture, and a surprising discovery. A few years ago, he’d been using a growing pile of productivity tools when he came to a realization: “I was way busier, but not more productive.”
Throughout 2018, musicians, producers, engineers, and show designers have been gathering at the Future Classic x Dropbox Studio to share ideas, host creative discussions, and create exclusive content. This month, Future Classic wanted to give fans a chance to check out the studio in person and connect with record makers and collectors. So they invited them to Future Classic’s first-ever Vinyl Fair.
Last year’s creative mash-ups at Outside Lands were so much fun, we couldn’t resist an encore. So we paired up a new posse of muralists, musicians, designers, and chocolatiers to find out what would happen if they combined their creative energy to produce some unique works of art together at the festival. Here are highlights from last week’s festival.
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.
Earlier this year, we traveled to The Gathering in Banff, Canada to meet with marketing leaders from the world’s most-coveted brands and learn how they guided their companies to cult status. While we were there, Liz Armistead, Head of Brand and Influencer Partnerships at Dropbox, sat down with Phil Epps, Vice President, Global Brand Director at Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey, to find out why giving people permission to fail can help fuel their creative energy.
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.
