Who are the cultural creatives?

March 25, 2011

There’s artists and then there are ARTISTS. There are businesses and then there are businesses that do things radically. Wikipedia has a pretty good definition:

Cultural Creatives is a term coined by sociologist Paul H. Ray and psychologist Sherry Ruth Anderson to describe a large segment in Western society that has recently developed beyond the standard paradigm of Modernists or Progressives versus Traditionalists or Conservatives.”

I encourage you to read the rest of the post. It’s very interesting. I tend to think a little differently about what makes up a cultural creative than those who coined the term, but I still feel they are the ones creating waves in todays world. These are the people I aim to help.

Who do you know that falls under the description?

I can give you a couple people and businesses:

Brett Hunter – Awesome artist who paints great introverted stuff with little concern for the financial aspect of it. Brett’s site                  —–><——Go there, add him, look at his rad art.

Attitude Designs – A business that is made up of a diverse staff of creative individuals functioning as one to churn out the best printed materials in Carbondale, maybe the world. —-><—– The only bad part is that they need a proper web page. What’s up Josh, Carly,Brett H., Andrew, Courtney, and Elaine?

These people are the people that make things happen. Let me know if you know anyone like this.

    We have a website,, and are working on a new one… since we are so small, working with minimal staff… these things take time. Ugh.
