Power up your creativity with technology
By Emanuel Maia
Steve Jobs once said, “The best way to create value in the 21st century is to connect creativity with technology.” All young learners need creativity today, as it helps them visualize things that don’t exist and make them real for the “general good” of the world. Not only does it allow us to recreate our past and shape the present, but it also allows us to build a future we choose. Today’s world is increasingly competitive in a digitalized environment, giving creativity a key moment. The evolution of technology has opened a new window of opportunity and changed the way ideas come to life, stimulating a movement on how creative tools are used. To maintain a competitive advantage in any creative field, applicants need to have hands-on experience in technology-driven tools that help students express their creativity, produce new and valuable ideas, and most importantly, innovate their implementation. .
Technology has allowed students to explore their creativity, collaborate, establish connections, communicate, and produce innovative products and services. Digital technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR) and the Internet of Things (IoT) are reshaping the way people live, learn, work and generate ideas. These innovations bridge the gap between supply (of services or products) and consumer demand.
Problem solving and software innovation
Moving towards digital improvement, creative institutions should be able to guide and train students to collaborate and interact with digital technologies to generate futuristic and problem-solving ideas. As part of everyday learning, they should use software and tools to help them communicate and expand creativity in a professional environment. The process of multidisciplinary thinking and educational technology are key to connecting these elements. Emerging solutions can, in turn, open the door to creative applications at all levels, helping to solve current problems. Using the right tools can multiply creativity exponentially and develop a unique job. In product design, furniture design, and jewelry design, students should gain hands-on experience in three-dimensional (3D) modeling, texturing, and rendering software to achieve their goals. Here are some of our favorite tools:
Maxon Cinema 4D
With a set of flexible modeling, animation and rendering tools, Maxon Cinema 4D software is efficient for designing moving graphics, visual effects, game development and virtual reality. For 3D professionals, software makes workflows more accessible.
For design and engineering, this set of browser-based design tools enhances product development to bring ideas to life. Help professionals through platform-based cloud design applications and artificial intelligence design tools.
Used in computer aided design (CAD), computer aided manufacturing (CAM), rapid prototyping, 3D printing and reverse engineering, Rhinoceros 3D is for architecture, industrial design (automotive design, boat design), design products and multimedia. and graphic design professionals.
V-ray and Corona Render motors
With a simplified creative process, these rendering engines free users from technical and unnatural processes. This reduces efforts by studying manuals and adjusting sampling and allows artists to focus on their vision.
Adobe’s Creative Cloud suite covers multiple aspects of creativity. It has industry standard tools for graphic designers, photographers, web designers, illustrators, marketing professionals and filmmakers.
Autodesk Fusion 360
This cloud-based 3D CAD / CAM tool combines industrial and mechanical design, machining and collaboration for product development. For a quick and easy exploration of design ideas with a set of integrated tools from concept to production, the tools simplify the creative process of designers.
Software and technology can help creators and designers compete, build, and sculpt a way to get the job of their dreams in a competitive job market. These technologies allow for a better way of working by freeing up time spent innovating and providing students and professionals with effective tools. In a truly digitalized world, creativity can be unlimited with technology.
