[In the beginning, God created…]
According to ancient writings, the first thing this Being ever did, was create. An act that would detonate the very fabric of existence and space/time through this singular verb.
It then describes the creation of mankind, made in His image. This means creativity is embedded into the human psyche as analogues of the Creator. It is a superpower accessible to every person on this planet. And when it is used, it is directly tapping into a source that has been around since the beginning of time.
Therefore, the act of creation is an act of faith; faith in your skills, tools and discovery processes. While exercising an inherently god-like set of traits, it is a journey into the unknown, navigating through familiar or strange oceans in hopes to land on the shores of creative solutions.
This is why GIAD™ exists. Created in 20/08, it is a simple idea with an evergreen directive: to inspire conversations and deposit a reminder that humankind was created on purpose from the imagination of a supreme Creator.
The GIAD™ Project is inspired by aesthetics that combine retro-futurism, technology and creation. There is a rhythm between English and Modern Japanese (Kanji) that has a certain techwear appeal.The phrases used in modern Japanese were translated by a Japanese proof-reader in Tokyo.
GOD IS A DESIGNER
