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。
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.
This book confirmed my love for designing, helped me find my direction in life and allowed me to understand the importance of this journey.
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.
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…
These are blessings given by life.
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.
Work hard for that happiness,
Work hard for that goal.
With faith and perseverance, our struggles will not remain as struggles.
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；
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: His name is Professor, not Beast, which is a similar sounding word in Chinese. He is, in fact, an extremely cultured dog.)
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!
Even though my life is like that, I am a restless designer who loves trying new things.
