Est Magazine Issue #2
January 2012 | 106 pages
Working on a digital magazine has led us to dream about transportable offices – working in locations beyond the white walls of our office confines. The inspiration for the front cover is exactly this. Working from anywhere, whether it be lakeside, snow topped mountain, ocean front or bustling inner city cafe. Inspiration is all round us – once we leave the office behind!
We found inspiration at Sydney Opera House last month at the X Media Lab where we worked with mentors and creatives from around the world in the field of digital media. The Sydney Opera House too knows the importance of collaborating with creatives to produce stunning inspiration. As a “love song to creativity”, The Sydney Opera House reworked Nick Cave’s ‘The Ship Song’ with artists over 12 months to produce the most stunning video and audio sound track I have seen in a long time. If this does not inspire you to create your very best – nothing will!
