Today we’re launching a new section of The Next Web inspired by the convergence of art, technology and design – the Creativity Channel.

Presented in partnership with Shutterstock, the channel will cover apps in fields like photography, video and digital art, and inspire you to be creative in all sorts of new ways. Our coverage of the design world has always proved popular so this is a natural extension of something we know you already enjoy about The Next Web.

To lead the Creativity Channel, we’ve brought on board a new member of the team, Jackie Dove. Based in Oakland, California, Jackie covered the world of photography and video apps with aplomb in her previous roles at Macworld and TechHive so she knows her stuff – please join me in giving her a warm welcome to TNW.

You’ll find content on the channel already and there will be fresh inspiration for you every day. Life’s too short to not be creative, so get out there and make something!
