Shutterstock CEO Jon Oringer

Love seeing the force behind Shutterstock, Founder and CEO Jon Oringer going undercover at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Super thankful to Jon and his team. They really get the global creative community we are fostering with CreativeMornings. Shutterstock has been a global partner for years. Their support is making a real difference in the creative community.

Friends Forever

Ok, this totally made me smile.

Come Work With Me!

CreativeMornings

CreativeMornings is hiring! Team CreativeMornings is looking to adopt a highly motivated, organized and upbeat Content Manager.

Ideally, you consider yourself a mini-Maria Popova, consuming and digesting content faster than a human body can process a Hi-Chew. You listen to Design Matters with Debbie Millman, admire the lush lettering of Jessica Hische and when we say “fck you, pay me”*—you think Mike Monteiro. If you know any of these people (or what a Hi-Chew is), you’ll fit right in.

Here’s the full job description!

Data

“… Data paves the road to the bottom. It is the lazy way to figure out what to do next. It’s obsessed with the short-term.

Data gets us the Kardashians.”

Harvesting Ideas

“It is not simply the brightest who have the best ideas; it is those who are best at harvesting ideas from others. It is not only the most determined who drive change; it is those who most fully engage with like-minded people. And it is not wealth or prestige that best motivates people; it is respect and help from peers.”

Alex “Sandy” Pentland

Solitude
