1) NY Creative Interns
If you’re a creative in the big city looking for work, this newly formed group is here to enable you to find internships, mentors, and inspiration through networking and meetups. Head to their kickoff event on December 9th to mix with other creative students and professionals looking for interns (and win free giveaway). Reps from Buzzfeed, Time Inc, IFC/Sundance, and more will be in attendance, so RSVP here.
This is a brand new site created by Seed for creatives looking to make sense of complex issues through data and design. Aside from having a kickass gallery of Infographics from around the world, the site hosts design competitions (with hefty cash prizes) that you Behancers should jump on. Next up is a a challenge sponsored by TEDMED & GE: use public data to visualize relationship between green space and public health.
3) Fifty People One Question
These impossible to dislike short films explore human connections through people and place. The premise is obvious: “We asked the same question and it took us somewhere new.” The filmmakers visit city streets and get answers from a diverse group of people, asking them questions like “What do you wish would happen by the end of today.” We highly recommend this ongoing social experiment.
