This Week in Workforce

So for my job as a Digital Content Specialist, I get a really cool opportunity to showcase what our office is up to every Friday. I’ve developed a template that makes this process relatively easy. Each week, I swap out images and text so I don’t have to recreate the entire thing over and over again. With that said, every week is different. I may decide to animate something to bring more attention to it. I may have to edit a new video clip down so it is easily summarized. The needs are endless so there’s always room for each week to be creatively unique.

I’ve been creating these since October 2018 (every Friday it goes out internally) so I’ve made 16 of these so far.

Here is the playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL7swTaNJiOt2zqx6zZJNieupsUM6Kk04F

Enjoy!

Mar. 2019 – Top 3 Music Tracks

As the continuation of the blog on http://www.thevarycreatives.com, I wanted to carry on the tradition of selecting my favorite music track picks for each month!

Here is March:

The Story – Brandi Carlile. This is one of those songs that I think I grew up loving but I didn’t learn the name or artist until 2019. I haven’t watched this music video and I actually don’t want to. Sometimes the music video can ruin a perfect song.

Breakaway – Kelly Clarkson. The same goes for this one. I would binge listen to her entire Breakaway album when I was 13. EVERY SONG IS AMAZING.

She Will Be Loved – Maroon 5 Throwback to when Maroon 5 didn’t sell out to the pop influence. I wasn’t a fan of their 2019 Superbowl performance…for the record.

Feb. 2019 – Top 3 Music Tracks

As the continuation of the blog on http://www.thevarycreatives.com, I wanted to carry on the tradition of selecting my favorite music track picks for each month!

Here is February’s:

The Flame – Cheap Trick. An oldie but goodie. I couldn’t tell you the lyrics but it’s a great song.

All Time Low – Jon Bellion. A little on the dark side. And as cool as this music video is, I would argue it’s not a music video because he’s never actually seen singing the song. It’s just a montage. Comment your thoughts if you think otherwise.

New Slang – The Shins. I heard this song in college at some point. Doesn’t seem to get old.

Starting a new thing

Hey there!

From 2011-2017, I started assembling a portfolio of everything I worked on and it quickly became a hot mess. It had everything (videos, pictures, services I offered at the time, modeling photos, blog posts, past work). This was called arvydamr.com.

I transitioned to focus more on services and The Vary Creatives was born.

While The Vary Creatives is a great way to showcase the services I offer, I realized that it wasn’t a very clear way to showcase my ART. For example, I had a blog talking about my favorite 3 music tracks each month…which was great! But that category of blog posts was something that didn’t really belong on a business website. I learned that I really did miss sharing my art in a way that wasn’t too structured and “on brand.”

So if you’re here! Great! Welcome. I’m Andrea. I’m 25 when I’m writing this and I enjoy graphic design, painting, photography, writing, animation, and find myself constantly exploring related topics. My interests change a lot but they are, thankfully, at least somewhat connected. I’m living in Atlanta, USA and here’s to sharing more of what I’m interested in! Enjoy!
