Whay A Creativity Project?

Welcome to the first day of the Detroit based creativity project, DETROIT: GROUND ZERO.


My goal in starting this project is to discover insights about how the creative process works. My plan is to document parts of my own creative process and then invite fellow Detroit based creatives to document parts of their processes as well. My hope is that this blog will become a resource for artists and collectors and a teaching tool for students. Plus, I think it would be really groovy to create a catalog of technical information, resources (check the right hand column) photos of everyone's work and links to their websites.

Kikko Paradela

Recruitment poster - College for Creative Studies
A couple of days ago I met Detroit artist Kikko Paradela.  His is a graphic designer and his work really spoke to me so I decided on the spot to share it with you.

     As you can see from the detail above, Kikko's approach to the medium is larger than graphics only, it is very open and emotional and interactive.   He is obviously influenced a great deal by the fine arts and when I asked him about his influences that is exactly what he said!  He had actually switched from studying
architectural design to graphic design because of his love of the fine arts and of experimentation.

Kikko's perspective is semiotic, more of a visual culture than a corporate culture.     
Semiotics /se' mi ot ics/   n. (used with a sing. verb)The theory and study of signs and symbols, especially as elements of language or other systems of communication.  Specifically visual communication.
