Artificial Intelligence (AI) is progressing at a rapid pace; impacting industries on a universal scale and initiating a future revolution on a whole host of processes in the visual-creative world.AI softwares are already able to generate completely new pieces of art, growing more complex in look & application day by day. Though current AI tech still has it’s limitations – essentially we must give AI a brief, a list of parameters inputted by humans for an algorithm to process. With this in mind, today’sAI ‘process of creation’ seems somewhat like a lifeless, mathematical equation – as it continues to make an impact, could we come to miss the magic born from the organic nature of traditional creativity?
The evolving landscape of wellness culture is leading to individuals and brands dismissing toxicity and creating new narratives to what ‘wellness’ means. A shift towards fitness and wellness culture over the pandemic came from many people finding new ways to spend their time during lockdown. In the wake of coronavirus, an estimated over two thirds of people (64%) found exercising as a priority. We saw the likes of Joe Wicks, ‘The Nations PE Teacher’, go viral by helping keep children fit with online classes whilst self-isolating as well as more recent trends on TikTok, such as “that girl”which glorifies socializing less and exercising more.
As Caroline Criado Perez attests in her book ‘Invisible Women’, we live in a world which for the most part, was designed for men. Inventions across industries have long been male-dominated, and while 33% of published scientific discoveries were by majority-female research teams back in 2010, these teams received just 16.2% of patents. 34 years, or an entire generation ago, this figure was 6.3% – indicative of a disappointingly low improvement.
Music has multiple benefits. It is a very powerful tool in changing a person’s mood and stimulating past memories. It is also proven to help reduce anxiety, blood pressure, as well as improve sleep quality and mental alertness. But what about creativity?
We love a good fashion collaboration here at the Yard.

Often a trend comes along that feels very much ‘in the moment’ whether that be in fashion, interiors or design. But that’s a trend right? Most trends are reoccurring; they are everywhere for a year or so and then they fade into obscurity, ready to re-emerge in 10 years time.
I recently read a book by Marie Boulanger who explores how typography perpetuates gender stereotypes. The designer highlights how bold and confident lettering is often associated with masculinity, while delicate and ornamental typography tends to be deemed feminine.
