FEATURING: Tim Boelaars

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?

A group of people that collaborate, share ideas and work together with a creative direction. This is doesn't limit itself to design, illustration or art but goes far beyond. In any profession there can be a 'creative community' coming up with solutions to solve problems in a new and progressive way. Motivation and transparency are key.

How did you discover your creativity? 

When I was quite young, my grandfather would teach me how to draw and paint on Wednesday afternoon. This sparked my interest and I always continued drawing. 

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

I think it was an editorial illustration for Wired magazine. I never had worked for magazine of that size before and was excited to be asked for it. 

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

It's currently empty, as I'll have to fit some groceries in there later today.

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

1. When in doubt, over communicate2. Find a good work / life balance

3. Don't join design competitions or work for free

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

I've got a collection of old design books that I often look at. I've also been using Pinterest more often as I keep finding good stuff on there, and their 'related' images function works well.

What would be your DREAM ASSIGNMENT?

To design a stamp series or national flag.
