We Are Social 由许多有才华和创意的员工组成。在这一集的"Creative Mix Tape",我们北京公司的设计师江涛将介绍他的灵感之处。。。

 

We Are Social is comprised of many talented creative individuals. In this episode of "Creative Mix Tape", our designer from Beijing will share his inspirations…

 

我是江涛,也是 JEAN, ^_^ 更喜欢你叫我江涛。我是 We Are Social 北京公司的一名设计师。

喜欢设计,喜欢画画,对世界的各种事情充满好奇,好的坏的都好奇。

之所以这么说需要从偶然看到的一本书说起 ——《我想看到的一世界》[美]珍妮·苏克

(极力推荐)

 

I'm Jiangtao, also known as Jean, ^_^ but I prefer to be called Jiangtao. I'm a Designer at We Are Social in Beijing.

I like designing and drawing. And I'm curious about everything under the sun. Whether it is good or bad, it will pique my interest.

Why do I say this?

It all began when I chanced upon this book, "A Light Inside" by Jeannie Suk. I highly recommend it.

 

因为这本书让我更确定自己有多爱设计,也更了解了自己追求的方向和生活的重点,以及创意源泉的发展途径!

 

This book confirmed my love for designing, helped me find my direction in life and allowed me to understand the importance of this journey.

 

世界一直都在悄然改变着。

每天都在变化

而我们需要慢下来,

静下来去发现,

去感受属于自己的春天

每天一小会儿的感悟

发现春天的味道;

 

The world is constantly evolving. Everyday you experience change.

We need to slow down, quiet our minds and discover a summer that belongs to ourselves. Every day's little experiences will help you find the true essence of summer.

 

我呢,闲暇之余,会带着相机去旅行;

其实并不怎么喜欢旅行,之所以去旅行是因为可以把途中遇到的美好的瞬间,拍下来变成永恒;记录自己期许的那份美好和浪漫,也让自己的生活、工作都包含幸福,充满想象。。。

 

In my leisure time, I take my camera and go traveling.

To be honest, I don't particularly like traveling, I just want to capture fleeting moments and turn them into memories that last forever. I record my expectations of the romantic and the finer things in life. It brings me happiness to be filled with imagination…

这些美好,

都是源于生活。

 

These are blessings given by life.

时间富裕之际会动手做一些小东西。因为喜欢,同时可以丰富自己的认知,也在快节奏的生活氛围里慢下来,始终不忘自己的初心。。。也让生活不只是有想象,还有实实在在的质感;在多变的世界里,跟上节奏的同时,坚守属于自己的那份美好。

 

When I have even more free time, I'll work on some small things that I enjoy and, at the same time, gain more knowledge to slow down the pace of life. However, I never forget my original intention… to not only be imaginative, but to allow myself to have different interesting experiences. In the ever-changing world and your effort to try and keep up, hold on to that happiness.

 

也为那份美好努力;

也为那份追求努力;

 

Work hard for that happiness,

Work hard for that goal.

 

有信念,

有追求,

自己所有的辛苦也就不再是辛苦。

 

With faith and perseverance, our struggles will not remain as struggles.

 

反正无论怎样都不要让身体和灵魂那么孤独;

孤独的时候,

偶然间遇到戳动你的文字,会有所安慰,有所感触;

这些文字汇聚的书是孤独时不错的选择,

因为它会让你遇到。

安迪·沃霍尔,跟你讲艺术商业 vs 商业艺术,生活即工作,性爱即工作;

遇到斯皮尔伯格,跟你分享他28部经典影片以及400多幅精彩图片的故事;

遇到陈丹青,跟你讲述他们那个时代的怕和爱。

再者跟我一样,读书同时还有金毛作伴。。。

 

No matter what you do, don't let your body and soul become lonely. A book is a good companion when you're lonely. Sometimes you come across text that will move you and comfort you. You will meet Andy Warhol, explaining the difference between the art business and business art, between life and work, between intimacy and work. You will meet Spielberg, who will share his 28 classic films and more than 400 story-filled pictures. You will meet Chen Danqing, telling you about the fear and love of his time. And, like me, you can have a golden haired companion while you read...

(PS:教授,他叫教授,不是叫兽。。。一只有!知!识!有!文!化!的狗!!!)

 

(PS: His name is Professor, not Beast, which is a similar sounding word in Chinese. He is, in fact, an extremely cultured dog.)

 

 

名字绝非不敬,而是为了提醒自己无论是什么时候,都不要那么无知,因为“无知”只有在孩子身上才最可爱。

而以上一切只为了说:

美好就在那里,

不只是看到,

需要你去发现去探索,

更需要切实地去做!

 

The name is not disrespectful. This name is to remind myself that no matter what, I should not be ignorant. Because "ignorance" is only cute when it's in the hands of a child.

And what I've written above is all just to say:

There is beauty all around. Sometimes it can't be seen; it has to be discovered. Go out and discover it!

 

我的生活即是如此,一个不安分喜欢各种尝试的设计师。

 

Even though my life is like that, I am a restless designer who loves trying new things.
