Established & curated #SnapsShowcase, April 2013 – 1st Virtual Design Showcase, providing a digital extension to designers in the mobile and social landscape. Snaps Showcase aimed at promoting a more dynamic and collaborative creative culture and has triggered a universal interest in mobile platforms as an innovative channel of distribution for designers. It has gathered world-wide participation by visual designers keen to capitalize on current photo-sharing trends.
How it worked: Fans of the designers are invited to take photos wherever they live and virtually embed the artwork into their environments, transplanting a design from Spain to NYC, or London to LA.
#SnapsShowcase triggered a universal interest in mobile platforms as an innovative channel of distribution for designers. Managing to showcase over 25 different designers from 9 different countries, participants include award winning photographers, illustrators, such as Ryan Quincy (South Park, Out There), Mario Wagner (WSJ, Wired, NYT Magazine), Chocotoy from Venezuela and Little Stitches from Switzerland. Beyond exposure, promotion and distribution, #SnapsShowcase allowed artists to engage with their fans and ushers in a virtual creative ecosystem that provides a digital extension to designers in the mobile and social landscape.
