Making Ideas Happen

The Video above is from the 99% conference and produced by Matias Corea of Behance.

I believe that the optimism, enthusiasm, and drive to produce outlined in the quotes in this motion graphics display sums up not just the raison d’etre of most creatives and creators, but also intersects with the mind of the entrepreneur. This video finds the heart of the Doer and the Maker, the change agent and the commentator.

The volume of great creators brought together in quotes that give permission for new creations demonstrate the wonder of our time.

Are you heeding these accomplished folks words? What are you creating?

I also love that the design gets out of the way of the messaging and the story. I think we get so caught up in trying to make things beautiful sometimes that we forget that great content is beautiful. Very often it is our job as designers and communicators not to “make things beautiful” but to make room for their inherent beauty to come through. I think Matis did a good job of that here.
