It’s been a little over a year since the CreativeMornings Kickstarter when we were humbled by the response from our 1200 backers. And today is the big day, where we unveil our new site. And yes, I am about to burst of excitement. I am incredibly moved by what CreativeMornings has turned into.
What started exactly five years ago in my studio has grown into a 57 chapter strong global organization, featuring speakers from Milton Glaser and Seth Godin to Jessica Hische and Erik Spiekermann. Obviously, I never could have imagined what CreativeMornings has become. Ever.
The new site was carefully handcrafted by my extraordinary studiomates of Oak Studios. And, in true CM spirit, the site translation into 10 languages was done by our chapter organizers! (You can change the language selection in the footer of the site)
The new website features include a full, searchable, sortable archive of every CreativeMornings talk. Every chapter now has a dedicated chapter sections to stay up to date with your local event. Take a look at Berlin for example. You now have the ability to live tag quotes from a video, post comments, save talks to watch later and ♥ favorite videos. But my favorite part of it all is the People section filled with attendee profiles from around the world. (Notice the ‘single’ filter? Grin!)
Today’s launch also marks the announcement of CM’s Official Partners: MailChimp, Shutterstock, and Squarespace. These like-minded companies support our growth and are a key reason why CreativeMornings can exist worldwide, for free. They make sure CreativeMornings is in good hands with an amazing full-time dedicated team: Kevin, Carly, Sally and Kate.
Enough with words! Have a look at the new site, play around, claim your username, and make a profile! This is only the beginning.
A big giant thank you to all of our Kickstarter backers that made this new site possible. An special thank you goes to 4ormat, Mailchimp, Squarespace, RISD and Andrew Zuckerman for the extra generous contribution.
