creative, inc.: stop motion video!

tuesday may be biz ladies day, but today i’m thrilled to be able to debut an amazing stop motion video from two of my favorite biz ladies, meg mateo ilasco and joy deangdeelert cho. meg and joy’s fantastic new book, creative, inc.: the ultimate guide to running a successful freelance business, came out last month and to celebrate the launch of the book, they did this amazing book trailer.

i’m a big fan of the new wave of book trailers we’re seeing online these days because they give you a great chance to “meet” the authors. if you’ve never met meg or joy, this video really captures a big part of both of their personalities: fun, playful, and unbelievably cute. if these two don’t get a tv show after this airs, someone’s missing out. i’d love to watch them travel around and help small business owners while wearing adorable matching dresses.

i’ve been poring through creative, inc. all weekend, dog-earing pages and topics that i definitely need help with myself. the book is full of advice and will teach all types of creative people, from illustrators and animators to photographers and graphic designers, how to build a successful business doing what they love. so if you’re looking for help with your small creative business, this book is a must. you can pick up a copy of creative inc. right here. a big congrats to meg and joy on their fantastic new book!

  1. Love your necklace really cute

  2. What a great video to promote their new book. Its very creative and really grabs your attention. I really like how the writers are in the trailer, this is something that you don’t see very often. It gives it a more personal touch and introduces them as the writers.

  4. Raquel Rocha says:

  5. This trailer is adorable! I will be adding the book to my “arm’s reach collection”. Within arms reach I currently keep, The Designer’s Lexicon, Craft Inc. (by Meg), the dictionary, a thesaurus and HTML cliff notes.
