Ripple Design & PR has launched a side project. Introducing: Creative Ripple.
Creative Ripple is an online magazine that will promote and support emerging and established NZ creatives. The magazine will feature a range of creators working across a variety of fields including art, photography, illustration, design, sculpture, jewellery, ceramics, music, performance and theatre.
Owner of Ripple Design & PR, George Arthur-Amohau, is the founding editor of Creative
ripple. "Online magazines such as this exist overseas, but nobody's following the model in New Zealand."
Any New Zealand creatives, or their agents, are invited to submit work to Creative Ripple, and more information about the process can be found at creativeripple.nz/get-featured.
In addition to featuring work from New Zealanders, Creative Ripple will provide tips for freelance creatives, and will share creative places, studios, inspiration and interviews.
Before the magazine's offical launch in November, Creative Ripple is on the lookout for new, interesting and different creative work; creative places to visit; inspiring stories to share; and successful, creative new New Zealanders to interview. Anyone who is interested can contact the magazine via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Passionate about sharing New Zealand's creative talent, writers have been excited about the number of submissions so far. "We're working through quite a number of submissions, from all over the country, prior to the launch in November," Arthur-Amohau, said.
Submissions so far have come mainly from artists. Creative Ripple is also hoping to hear from New Zealand's designers, writers, musicians and theatrical community.
You can subscribe to Creative Ripple on the website, www.creativeripple.nz, and follow the magazine on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr.
