Innovative ways to harness your creativity and captivate your audience is the name of the game these days. The times when standard block print slapped on a billboard got everyone's attention are long since over. Art has taken on a different role as the identifying factor for individual brands everywhere. Artists, designers, and musicians are constantly challenges to push the creative envelope in ways that grows their fanbase and expands their reach, but in order to do so successfully, you must understand the changes that have taken place and the trends that are making that happen.
The competition is definitely stiff, and the possibilities may be endless, but if you can't get results that scale, you're going to fall off the boat just as quickly as you found yourself on it. Midlevel artists are the ones who find themselves stuggling the most. Because they're not in the top tier of industry influencers and revenue generators, their access to creative resources may be extremely limited.
