Bio


I'm a student starting medical school in 2014 in order to continue a career in Medicine (Specifically Cardiovascular Surgery). But moving on - I am a creative and innovative individual who constantly works on new ideas and projects involving the spreading of creative thinking, love for arts and technologies for better communication. + A professional level Designer, Artist and Web Developer.

An idea worth spreading


Today the world in moving forward in every aspect - technology, business, education, healthcare - but what about creativity? Tests (Such as Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking) have shown that over the decades our IQ scores have kept growing, but has shown a decline in creative thinking. In other words, we are smarter, yet less equipped to find novel approaches to problems.

So back in 2011 I started a project called Designn (www.designn.org) whose goal is to educate about, inform about and spread creativity worldwide by offering various free services to the community - for example Publishing free digital magazines, creating creative blogs, funding free resources, spreading creativity through social media, promoting arts and crafts, and so on.

I'm passionate about


Studying medicine, spreading creativity, making art, developing new technologies and solutions through creative thinking.

THE PROBLEM

Are you an artist of any form or hoping to continue a career in the arts? Maybe as a graphics designer, painter, illustrator or anything to do with arts? Did you know that many parents and schools discourage or don't promote creativity in children, and thereby lead to reducing numbers of creative thinkers and artist?

Today the world in moving forward in every aspect - technology, business, education, healthcare - but what about creativity? Tests (Such as Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking) have shown that over the decades our IQ scores have kept growing, but has shown a decline in creative thinking. In other words, we are smarter, yet less equipped to find novel approaches to problems.

THE IDEA

A word of advice, creative quote or inspiring message coming directly from an artist can make the difference in dreaming and believing. Therefore I create posters with creative messages to promote creativity in the younger generations. Help promote creativity in individuals and make the future not only intellectually advanced - but also more beautiful.

HOW CAN YOU CONTRIBUTE?

Send me a picture of yourself as a note (or email udara@designn.org) with your name and job/ambition as an artist (optional: include your own  creative message too)! And from this I'll create a poster which I'll print and put up in schools and public places and at the same time share them online!


Your support is much appreciated and all contributors would be listed on an official online article in appreciation of their support. 

Thank You,
Udara Jay. 
Founder of Designn (www.designn.org)
