Admcom tipped us off to an inspiring project they’ve been working on. Year Of Creativity 2008 features images of 366 illustrated business cards which show 366 different, imaginative (sometimes wacky) professions. It’s a way to think really different by playing with new word combinations to spark ideas.
Some of the imaginary professions include: Dumb fish imitator, Earthly navigator, Egg beater, Ego builder, Elusive target analyst, E – Mailman, Embarrassed ambassador, Emotion seismologist, Emotion simulator, Energy generator, Engagement ringing staff manager, Engineer of the fantastic, Escape from sedentary life prober, Essential oil distiller.
The YOC site also lets you personalize and save the cards with your own information.
From the Year Of Creativity site:
Year of Creativity – YOC – is designed to stimulate something we all have in common: creativity.
It is a starting point from which to explore the amazing potential of small changes and the infinite opportunities they offer. YOC is an invitation to be more curious and more imaginative. It is a catalyst that promotes real and virtual opportunities for us all to discuss and compare our own creativity. It is a space in which the endless personalities inside us can express themselves, as only those who are inwardly creative can also be creative with the world at large.
