World-recognised strategy, innovation, and design consultancy RKS, in collaboration with Neuma, has launched the debut of Amuen.com, the new social network where creative souls can connect to celebrate, showcase, and inspire all kinds of creativity and art.
When it comes to reasons to live, art and human interaction are top the list for Carson Hill, painter, tattoo artist, and inventor. “Art is very inspiring – to me the universe and everything in it is art,” said Carson. Steve Johnson, Carson’s right hand at Neuma comes from a very different, but no less creative world. Odds are that you’ve seen Steve’s work. Before joining Neuma, the graphic and digital artist created playback animations for TV shows including 24, Bones, Criminal Minds, Without a Trace, and Close to Home.
The idea for Amuen (am-yoo-en) struck when Carson and Steve realised there was a need for a site that welcomes creatives and artists of all types. No matter what your medium, there are elements of the creative process that transcend any one discipline. From inspiration to execution through public appreciation, artistic journeys have key elements and experiences in common. The RKS-designed Amuen.com is a social network dedicated to the journeys of painters, musicians, sculptors, photographers, writers, enthusiasts, and everyone in between. It’s the free online community where creative souls can connect to celebrate, showcase, and inspire all kinds of creativity and art.
Though a fair number of the site’s early members come from the land of Neuma and tattoos, Carson and Steve are dedicated to welcoming all kinds of creatives into the site… and they know the right kind of bait. To mark the debut of Amuen, Carson and Steve are challenging members to create the best, most creative profile page. The winner will get apple’s new 13” aluminum unibody MacBook, complete with a custom skin designed by Carson. For those who prefer to keep a lower profile, no pun intended; the member with the most referrals resulting in membership will win a 16GB iPod Touch – also with a custom skin designed by Carson. The contest is open to anyone. Details are on the site.
