Highlighting ADHESIVE&CO Creatives


Featuring ADHESIVE&CO Creatives in our Community


FEATURING: Chad Silver

What do the words "Creative Community" bring to mind for you? How do you feel is the best way to utilize members in a Creative Community?

I work for myself so I can work alone. I'm suspicious of people and collaborating.

How did you discover your creativity?

Creativity is simply problem solving. The hard part is creating a problem for yourself to solve.

What was your first “Big Break” in your profession?

No ones really given me anything. I posses a lot of initiative and create my own opportunities. When I was in high school up in northern Canada, I went on student welfare & got my own place. I started my first business in that basement apartment.

What's in your backpack/handbag/tote right now?

A hammer, screw driver, Mac book air, note book, balloons & A La Croix (pamplemousse)

Top 3 Tips you would give someone starting out in your creative profession:

1) Be young and cocky.  

2) Don't talk about your ideas - do them.  

3) Write drunk, edit sober.

What are some of your favorite places/books/blogs/websites for inspiration?

I waste way too much time looking at home and design blogs. I'm a big fan of stealing designs, changing them a little and making them my own. If I see something I like I try to make it rather than buy it. It ends up costing more and coming out slightly better.

What would be your last supper?

Spatchcocked chicken with grade B maple syrup and rosemary.

What would be your Networking Do's & Dont's?

DO: Buy "Likes" for your page on Facebook.

DON'T: Buy people drinks.
