attuned of mind, the more fascinating the results."

"For me creativity is very related to honesty, Being honest with yourself. I can only progress in my work when I am aware of what I am missing and then only then is when creativity can act. I "create" a new way, find a new solution, or even teach myself how to paint again if I have to. Creativity is not an accident, it is an important part in the mind of any successful person. Whether we see it or not, that's another thing."

Zakaria Wakrim


I see creativity as the magical part of any artistic approach. It is the kind of work that doesn't feel as work. Being creative is being somehow adventurous, original but also hard-working. 
I firmly believe that there's an innate part, but there's also another which you can work throughout your life.

I believe that creativity is a unique identity of an individual's ability to express themselves. This expression can be viewed through past and present experiences.

"Creativity is about something FRESH. Looking at things not as they are but as they could be. 
Being creative means to me a life worth living. My freedom, my escape my therapy."

"Creativity is the ability to create something from nothing. Artists like musicians use silence as their canvas. They arrange sounds and make music into an empty space and based on what you hear and perceive, the listener will decide what is good music or bad music, but you can not deny the art in the space of silence because ones you turn off the music all you have is silence.
Creativity is putting different levels of your imaginations, experience, energy and channeling them into something totally different, something that has not existed at that particular point in time."

- Laolu Senbanjo (artist/musician/lawyer)

"Creativity is about refusing to be fearful. Human existence is a paradox: we reward creative thinking yet the most dominant social forces in the world encourage us to conform. When we reject the pressure to conform we face the fear of standing alone but at the same time we realize our creative selves. Facing that fear is the hardest part of being creative, its also the easiest thing to do because all you are really doing is listening to your true self."

"We cannot become what we want to be by remaining what we are." We have to constantly create and to work on our dreams and by doing that we have to change our thinking into a positive one, into one where we believe in our dreams."

Creativity is the ability to think outside the box and connect dots in ways other people haven't before. But let's not kid ourselves, we always rely on others to put the dots there in the first place. Everything is a remix.

''Creativity is about challenging the status quo, doing something unexpected. 
Creativity can come from anywhere.''

Othello Grey


"In my opinion, true creativity is the unique ability to transform inspiration into new ideas. All artists feed off of inspiration and (while in the state of euphoria) attempt to create. 
The difference is that some artists posses the ability to separate themselves from what inspires them just enough that what they create is not a clone/imitation/reiteration etc. 

Creativity is an art in itself. A passionate struggle. Flowing freely outside of everything that has been done already (as nearly everything has) seems virtually impossible, so the strategy now is to learn how to re imagine ideas and allow them to manifest
 alongside your own unique abilities. 

Inspiration can come from anything which in turn means creativity is formless. The most mundane elements of life can spark the mind- understanding this and seeking it out is one of the most valuable tools anyone can possess. There are levels to creativity.. I could go on forever.. creativity is an art, it takes strategy, it takes discipline, it takes effort.. but once you concentrate all of what is necessary to be creative… it takes nothing."

- Othello Grey (photographer/creative director)

"Creativity is the translation into space and time, of passion and necessity. 
It is the conduit through which life and love find their voice."

Brianna McCarthy (mixed media visual communicator)

David Uzochukwu


"I think that creativity is the power to create something new, to be able to step over the boundaries of what is already existent. You have to be able to look at things from a different perspective, redefine reality and act on what your gut tells you."
- David Uzochukwu (Photographer)

"Creativity is an endless communion for me and I attain a state 
of perfect contentment when I paint."

Kieron Lewis


Being creative is something that has been with me from a very young age. Growing up, I was a typical London kid- playing football, video games and eating a ridiculous amounts of sweets. But one thing I did, and I guess its only now I can look back and appreciate it, is that I was always curious by the "creative process" of how things were created. So if I went to the shops to buy sweets, I would stare at the packaging for ages. All the various colours and clever typography on the various packages I found amazing! You can only imagine how many concepts were developed, just to simply get 'one' final outcome. As pointless as this may have seen back then, I can now reflect back on my childhood experiences, and realise my curiosity with the creative process behind how packaging works within advertisement, has had a direct impact on where I'm at today with my career. Even to this day I will spend a good 10 minutes in a  sweet shop before picking anything up - Yes, I have been called odd in the past!!

"Creativity is a way of seeing. Creativity is a catalyst to inspire people's imaginations. Creativity is a vision for expanding humans' experiences. Creativity is the ultimate power to enrich every aspect of humans' everyday lives, for good."

"Creativity is like a free fall through the clouds, sometimes
 you end up on a dragon and sometimes on a mosquito."

"Creativity is the gun and your work is the bullet. 
The thing is some people are walking around with bazookas.
But, if you want a bazooka too you can build it."

Matthew Korbel-Bowers  (Art Director)

Zaria Forman

"Creativity, for me, arises from inspiration. A deeply affecting experience draws an expression out of me. Our individual (and constantly evolving) perceptions of the world give rise to creative possibilities that are at once unique and infinite. It's exciting!" 

Zaria Forman (Artist)

Jerome Herr


“For me creativity is playing around with ideas that pop up in my head and trying 
to turn them into something real. Even if it’s something as virtual as code. 
The creative act is also among the most satisfying things humans can do.”

- Jerome Herr (homo creativus)
