In welcoming the new year, Apple has started running a new ad campaign called “Start Something New,” featuring a gallery of works of visual art created using iOS and Mac devices and apps. As it turns out, this campaign is prominently administered by Apple offline as well as online.
In addition to launching a webpage dedicated to the campaign, Apple has turned some of its brick-and-mortar retail stores into temporary art galleries showcasing pieces from the campaign. As reported by 9to5Mac, a “Start Something New” art gallery has been installed in each participating store in various locations around the world including New York, Toronto, and London.
As noted by Apple on the “Start Something New” webpage:
Every piece in this gallery was created on an Apple product. Every brushstroke, every pixel and every frame of film was brought to life by talented Apple users from around the world. As you explore their work, we hope it inspires you to create something new.
