5 Examples of Innovation

“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things.”

~Steve Jobs

So this week I found a few  great examples of innovation. Ranging from photography to face painting and business cards, these things will blow you away.


1. Dreamscape photos

These amazing photos by Jee Young Lee are a part of the “State of Mind” exhibit. I think the most impressive part of these self portraits are that they are photoshop free.

2. Creative Business Cards

These creative business cards are pretty fun or useful. I’m not sure how safe the dried meat business card is to eat, but hey, I guess if you’re in a bind…

3. Face Painting

It’s amazing how the artiest, Christy Lewis, can transform these kid’s faces into these amazing pieces of art. From cartoon characters to a Dia de Los Muertos girl, these designs will be sure to astound you.

4. Watch part Insects

These cool sculptures by Justin Gershenson-Gates are a part of the “A Mechanical Mind” series. Each and every one of these little creatures are made out of used watch parts!

5. The Miniature World Of Snails

These cute pictures of these snails are taken by Vyacheslav Mishchenko. Each one of these great pictures are the result of patience and being in the right place at the right time, which I think is pretty cool!


I hope you enjoyed these as much as I did! You can find more here:
