About this Project:
It’s an exciting time to be creative. With a WIFI connection, a device and an idea we can create something and have it reach people on the other side of the planet. I’ve explored how social media can be a tool to host an innovative portfolio and propel creatives forward in their career. Whilst I argue social media fosters creativity, I also recognise the emerging contemporary issues that we face whilst building an online persona. I have illustrated this topic in a visual commentary. The complex and contemporary topic meets its match in the experimental layout. The commentary is a document of my own personal reflective and collaborative efforts surrounding key themes. My hope is that we have better discussions around social media interactions and acknowledge its pitfalls to become equipped to use it as a powerful creative tool.
