March’s Theme is “Hidden”

Ready or not, March, here we come! There’s no hiding from March’s theme of “Hidden.” The theme was chosen by our Seattle organizer David Conrad and his team, and we were thrilled to have Jesse LeDoux create the charming illustration you see above.

From hidden artistic details to groups hidden from society, interpretations on this month’s theme are all over the map, literally. A few of this month’s speakers include:

    • Cori Moore, haptic thinker making ideas tangible (Berlin)
    • Sinéad Burke, little person (Dublin)
    • Marije Kuiper, Like Knows Like (Utrecht)
    • Cecylia Malik, artist, performer, curator of contemporary art (Kraków)
    • Dustin Yellin, contemporary artist (New York)
    • Mitch Joel, author and blogger (Montréal)

As always, free tickets will be available at this page, starting the Monday before the talk, that is March 24, 10:00.

February’s Theme is “Rebel”

We are entering February 2014 with the theme of “Rebel”. This motto was chosen by our Portland chapter and we were thrilled to have Portland-based Adam Garcia create this month’s theme illustration.

This month’s theme is presented by Shutterstock, one of our Official Partners, who supports us and helps us keep CreativeMornings free and accessible to creative professionals in over sixty cities around the world. Thanks, Shutterstock!

The upcoming Berlin event will be covered by Martin Reiche, an audiovisual artist living and working in Berlin, Germany.  In this talk, he wants to dive into his approach of combining worlds that for long time did not seem to belong together, reflecting on art that stems from scientific research, scientific research evolving out of the arts and the anthropological questions that almost naturally evolve around this genuinely new field which is neither art, sciences or humanities, but something new, hybrid, and nevertheless important.

January’s Theme is “Childhood”

Hooray! We are excited to kick off 2014 with the theme of “Childhood”. The motto was chosen by our Milan chapter and we were thrilled to have Ed Nacional create this month’s theme illustration.

This month’s theme is presented by Squarespace, one of our Official Partners, who supports us and helps us keep CreativeMornings free and accessible to creative professionals in over sixty cities around the world. Thanks, Squarespace!

The upcoming Berlin event promises to get you in touch with your inner child. Our speaker Anabel Ternès will explain how we learn through fun activities: We imitate, try out, stand up and learn stubbornly. Various design strategies are based on these laws of education: storytelling, gamification, learning by trial and error, failure, copying, repeating, modifying – alone and in groups, situational and progressively, through fear, praise, and mint.

December’s Theme is Make

This December, we’re excited to announce our theme of “Make.” The theme was chosen by our organizer Sam Aquillano and the Boston team. The video illustration was crafted by the beyond talented MacPremo & Bas Berkhout. You can check out the making of our video illustration, aka the Making of Make over on Ismaël Lotz’s Vimeo page here.

As always, free tickets are available starting the Monday before the talk. Our speaker on Friday will be Rupali Steinmeyer, Head of Client Management and Member of the Management Board at MetaDesign. Her 20 minutes about Make will be devoted to “What makes me who I am and do the things I do.” Rupali will use the opportunity to highlight a few personal and professional anecdotes that might explain her “make up.”

November = Bravery

Bravery

Last month, we had a lot of fun discussing the topic of Play across our sixty chapters. This November, we’re excited to announce our theme of Bravery. The theme was chosen by our organizer Blake Howard and the Atlanta team and animated beautifully by fabulous Stewart Scott-Curran who created our monthly illustration.

Shutterstock Expands to Europe with German Office

Yesterday evening CreativeMornings’ worldwide sponsor Shutterstock celebrated the grand opening of its European headquarter in Berlin. The sales and development office is well located in the heart of Germany’s capital, right in the Kulturbrauerei, the best meeting place for cultural exchange.

In his short talk after a ribbon cutting ceremony CEO Jon Oringer mentioned, that the New York-based company does more than two-thirds of its business outside the U.S., with Germany the biggest market in Europe. “The move to Berlin was partly aimed at taking advantage of the ‘tech talent’ in this city”.


After some inspiring conversations at Shutterstock’s opening party we were all infected by their photographic energy. Fortunately, a nostalgic passport photo machine is located directly at the entrance of Shutterstock’s new offices. Here we shot a beautiful b/w family photo quartet that satisfied our desire for an emotional image (Polaroid frame image courtesy of Shutterstock)

New Location: MetaHaus, Trafohalle

We are happy to announce a new location, sponsored by our friends at MetaDesign: the Trafohalle at MetaHaus. The building was constructed in 1928/29, by Hans Heinrich Müller for the power supply of the living quarters in Charlottenburg as a superior steel frame construction with red brick facade. The Trafohalle is located on the ground floor and offers 100 seats for our guests.
