Born and raised in Barcelona, Matias Corea graduated in Graphic Design from La Massana Art School. In the early years, he was very influenced by the omnipresence of electronic music in Barcelona. Working for multiple DJs and clubs, he found a canvas to explore the boundaries of graphic design and expression. This is where he developed an awareness of the crucial importance of the communication aspect of design. His studio space at this time was at his father’s architecture studio. There he found a love for architecture which strongly influenced him and brought an inherent order to his design work.
This geeky passion for organizing information found its home in New York.
Six year later, he continued to work on print design, but now he focused on interaction design. As Co-Founder and Chief Designer of Behance –a company dedicated to organizing the creative world, Matias led the brand identity and design of all Behance products– including the Behance Network, ProSite, The 99% Conference & Magazine, and Action Method, amongst others.
Realizations From Connecting the Creative World.The future of creative careers will transform the creative industry as we know it. For too long, creative careers have been held captive by antiquated systems for getting found and operating as your own business. Alas, times have changed! New technology and online platforms will empower millions of creatives around the world to connect directly with brands, clients, and collaborators. Key forces like attribution, transparency, and data-driven tools will foster meritocracy for creative people across industries.
With great opportunity comes great responsibility. The web can work for us, or against us. Matias will share insights on the future of creative careers and the steps we must take to empower creative people.
