The Motivation of the Designer
Crowd Creativity

 

Choosing the winner just makes everyone else the losers. This is the common creed regarding contests and sweepstakes. For a single shot, no problem, but if you want to permanently keep a community happy, the “winner takes all” principle leads quickly to affect the commitment of the members and potentially diminish the creativity of the platform. Perhaps it is precisely this approach that is driving good designers to join 12Designer competitions. It is precisely these subtleties in the motivational construct of members that Eva Missling, founder of 12Designer, wanted to find.

Creative Crowdsourcing meets Crowdfunding: How The Web Changes Art
Crowd Creativity, Crowdfunding

Social Media Week in Berlin (19-23 September 2011) will bring together jovoto, a creative crowdsourcing platform for collaborative idea generation together with Start Next, a crowdfunding platform for artists, designers and inventors to undertake a unique experiment to merge the power of creative crowdsourcing with the power of crowdfunding. Together jovoto and Start Next  will kick-off a cross-platform initiative to crowdfund and then produce, works of art. The concept is; three weeks of proposals to identify artists, four weeks funding followed by two weeks of art.

They believe that everyone is an artist and that everyone has the ability to create art. jovoto and Start Next will help fund artists and then enable the distribution their work over the Internet so that they can reach the broadest possible audience. The development and implementation of creative ideas through the Internet is increasingly becoming a collaborative act. Creative crowdsourcing can involve the broadcast of a creative endeavor inviting creatives to provide individual works. Alternatively, art can be formed as a result of the collective participation of many artists. Artists like Aaron Koblin have demonstrated how it’s possible to create unique work by tapping into large communities of artists, often involving thousands of individuals. Crowdsourcing both provides the opportunity for new talent to be found and new forms of art to be created.
