Creative energy exists within everyone. It’s an irresistible momentum, an endless curiosity, and the desire to reimagine what’s possible. To highlight the importance of collaboration, inspire future creators, and cultivate creative energy, we’ve teamed up with Dropbox and four London-based artists on an exclusive art project that reflects London’s diverse creative scene, and we're going to give you the chance to take part too.

Pref, Will Gates, Jamie Julien Brown, and Camille Walala worked together using Dropbox Paper — a new collaborative workspace that helps teams formulate and share ideas. Together, they came up with creative concepts in this unique digital world before bringing to life two physical projects: a mural in the heart of the London and the digital zine below.

Across this page, we explore the minds and work of the four up-and-coming creators. At the bottom, you’ll have the opportunity to contribute your own one-of-a-kind artwork that’ll sit right here on Highsnobiety alongside the work of Pref, Will Gates, Jamie Julien Brown, and Camille Walala.

Scroll through, find your creative energy, and start your own journey with Dropbox Paper.

Jamie Julien Brown

"One of the exciting things about creative energy is that when it hits, you don't really know where it's going to take you."

"When I push outside of what I normally do, that's when I feel creative energy and ideas flow."
