A creator by definition is someone who brings something in existence. Simple enough. A creator in art denotes someone who creates something aesthetically or sonically pleasing for a living. Creators are people like painters, sculptors, producers, models, musicians, poets, AND innovators like engineers, architects, locksmiths etc. It can be a pretty broad term.
What is a creative then ? A creative is defined as a person involved with the imagination of original ideas, especially in the production of an artistic work.
Here’s what Goins Writer says on the topic. “A creative is an artist. Not just a painter or musician or writer. She is someone who sees the world a little differently than others. A creative is an individual. He is unique, someone who doesn’t quite fit into any box. Some think of creatives as iconoclasts; others see them as rebels. Both are quite apt. A creative is a thought leader. He influences people not necessarily through personality but through his innate gifts and talents. A creative creates art. Not to make a buck, but to make a difference. She writes to write, not to be noticed or to sell books. She sings to sing, for the pure joy of making music. And she paints to paint. (And so on…) A creative colors outside the lines. On purpose. In so doing, she shows the world a whole new picture they never would have otherwise seen. A creative breaks the rules. And as a result, he sets a new standard to follow.”
