The Leadership Inspiration Initiative
A series of images to create leadership inspiration in entrepreneurs and business folk.
It was borne out of a desire to spend 20 minutes a day on subway commutes doing something creative and exploring the mobile phone as a platform for creative expression.
I’ve been spending some time admiring the Instagram feeds of incredible makers and bloggers and the idea came to me that the best way to express myself and inspire others lay right at my fingertips.
To this end I started the Leadership Inspiration initiative with a purpose to express my creativity and inspire with the words of great leaders.
All the images are created using the apps Enlight , Over and Snapseed – delivered through Instagram.
The Leadership Inspiration Initiative is here to inspire the best leadership and entrepreneurship qualities in you though the words of the greats that came before you, such as: Steve Jobs, Sheryl Sandberg, Reid Hoffman, Mark Zuckerberg and more.
I find that the app Enlight is best for initially overlaying and blending images, whereas Over is the best for Typography and overlaying other items. Snapseed is sometimes used for the it’s excellent ability to edit specific zones without affecting other areas.
I find it takes 20-30 minutes per design and occasionally I have to spend some extra time on layout or redoing a design I’m unhappy with. It’s a great way to spend the time on a commute. Not only do I get to research the leaders I’m portraying better, but I get to perform an exercise in creativity. Better still, the response seems really great and my Insta followers are enjoying the content.
