A little inspiration for you to get you going? Why not. Fashion photographer and NYC native Shaniqwa Jarvis has just launched her Green Box “The Conversation” at Santa Monica Pier. In the exclusive interview here, Shaniqwa tells us how she’s come to create the piece, the journey she’s taken to get this far and what it means to be given an opportunity to do what you love.

One of the most recognised and respected American industrial designers of his generation, Stephen Burks and his New York studio, Readymade Projects have also launched their Green Box. Sitting steady at Coco Walk in Miami, the iconic designer has created an organic yet surreal totem of his sketches and dancing objects, the elements coming together and filling your screen to form a complete vision of design optimism and inspiration. Click here to watch Stephen Burks’ exclusive interview where he takes us through his latest curatorial exhibition and explains how designers serve as “cultural connectors.”

Go to Becks.com to see Green Boxes by Kenneth Cappello, Sage Vaughn, Reed + Rader, Kate MccGwire and Austra. Be sure to check out their virtual galleries and exclusive interview films as well.
