We are surrounded by media all around us. Mornings are greeted with a newspaper, radio or a magazine, well not in this century. The present day starts with twitter, Facebook, and WhatsApp. These social media platforms help to horn the skills needed for a creative. We are so glued to our smart phones and tablets that we don’t realize that they have overpowered us with their charm.
My mornings are spent listening to the radio. It sure does keep one alive. When my mind hooks on to a nice jingle it’s got me humming the same throughout the day. When we are taken up by a particular article we read we click ‘like’, we love a picture on Facebook again we click ‘like’. All thanks to the creative element that lingers on. Whether it’s an article or an ad poster online we are being drawn to the digital field. A creative does a lot online both in terms of passing on a messaging and of doing business.
What is considered as creative?
It is anything or everything that can present an idea through digital technology. We can also consider the soft copy of a hand bill or a pamphlet. It is mainly designed to attract people’s attention towards something or convey a particular message. Some of the skills in creative that we are going to speak about are:
It is an artistic piece of work that uses digital technology as a means for being creative. Artists have now become digital artists, who work not with paints and palettes but with tools like net art, sound art, and digital installation art. Screenshots, GIFs, and videos are 3 ways an artist can show his progress in the digital painting experience.
Youngsters today are more and more interested in writing and keeping abreast with the latest technologies that use this mode. Digital writing has taken over. Blogs are one of these. People have started tracking their life’s journeys, travel, food, and other tips in these blogs. This not only provides a medium to connect with others around the web but also showcase their writing talent. Writing improves your vocabulary, increases your knowledge, and lets you be in the past, present and future all at the same time.
There’s no need for an introduction on this. Photography has been around since 18th century and it has only been better with time. Photography in the digital media is of great importance as we do not get to see a physical photo. So the digital photo is a representation of the product or design and hence should be the best. It helps us to look at mundane things with interest. Usage of graphics in a photo makes up to a wonderful creation.
Music touches the soul. The use of music digitally is seen in jingles, background scores. All the work happens in the recording studio using recording software, hardware, and other equipment to make music. An audio clipping is a creative as long as it can convey a message.
Films being the main component in the digital media, it should be used wisely to advertise the ideas, as it can have a huge influence on the masses who watch it. In the positive sense, it helps to showcase the social evils and make us aware of what is happening around the world.
