How to Live Like a Creative

Project gallery Project page

Seeking to further uncover what it means to lead a creative life, we surveyed over 2000 members of the talented Format community at the end of 2015.

“How do today’s photographers, designers, illustrators, artists, filmmakers and other creative pros spend their time?” we mused. “Where do they reside? How do they work—and more importantly—play? What are their differences and similarities?”

Shattering the disorganized, sleep-all-day, drink-all-night ‘starving artist’ stereotype, our results depict a group of confident, business-minded, active individuals that are passionate about their crafts. United beyond a penchant for spectacles and motorcycle jackets, they’re driven by the need to express themselves and maintain a sense of achievement.

Here, we’ve teamed up with illustrator Sam Island to visualize their daily habits, hour by hour. Consider it a step-by-step guide to achieving a modern creative life.
