What is a Creative?

”A creative is an artist. Not just a painter or musician or writer. He is someone who sees the world a little differently than others. A creative is an individual. He is unique, someone who doesn’t quite fit into any box. Some think of creatives as iconoclasts; others see them as rebels. Both are quite apt. A creative is a thought leader. He influences people not necessarily through personality but through his innate gifts and talents.

And what, exactly, does a creative do?

Good question; sometimes they don’t even know.

A creative creates art. Not make a buck, but to make a difference. He writes to write, not to be noticed or to sell books. He sings to sing, for the pure joy of making music. And he paints to paint. (And so on…) A creative colors outside the lines. On purpose. In so doing, he shows the world a whole new picture they never would have otherwise seen. A creative breaks the rules. And as a result, he sets a new standard to follow.

Why we need creatives

The truth is that we need more creatives in positions of influence — to color the world with beauty and life.

Creatives craft poetry in a world that is otherwise content with prose. They bring art to areas where there is only architecture.

Creatives help us see life in a new light — to perceive a new dimension, a deeper way of encountering what we know. And we need more of those kinds of leaders.“
