Welcome

This is a site dedicated to all creative people whether it be Designers, Photographers, Artists of all nature, Musicians, Stylists, Writers. Anyone who invents and creates something out of nothing. Anyone who wants to leave their mark on the world by adding their splash of genius and originality. A place for all creative minds to share and get inspiration. Creativity is for everyone. Each and everyone of us has a piece of the creative within us. As Pablo Picasso said: “Every child is an artist, the problem is staying an artist when you grow up”. This is very true. People like me – a professional graphic designer, may even lose our creativity through the daily grind of our jobs, and especially if we work with major accounts, blue chips clients where so much else influences the end product. It is very rare for an original creative idea of mine to manifest into an end-product without the effect of a team of non-creative business people all adding their 2-cents. This kind of work can sap our free-thinking spirit into that of a “mac-puppet”. Our creativity is so often discouraged and we end up working for the machine. As Steve Jobs puts it: “Only those who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who usually do”. So to you my fellow creatives, the whole purpose of creativity, is autonomy. It’s about YOU. You are the artist. Express yourself without fear of judgement, or rejection. If you create something and 3 or 4 superiors above you change it all to suit their subjective or objective opinions, you cannot claim it. That is why I urge all creatives, who are feeling despondent and lacking in motivation, to seperate yourself from that which is your “creative” job role, and find your creative spirit in your own capacity. Futurespace will be that place for you to come and just enjoy all things beautiful and interesting. On that note I’ll leave you with another quote from Jack London: “You can’t wait for inspiration, you have to go after it with a club”
