Management and collaboration are not always seen as compatible, but for Design and Management graduate Hannes Steen Thornhammar, they go hand in hand. During his time at Parsons, the Swedish-born Thornhammar developed a business approach that calls for joint effort. Together with his friend and fellow Design and Management student James Burr, Thornhammar launched an online artists’ network called Jamspire.com. “We wanted to bring creative people together to share and promote their work and interact with one another,” he says. The site, which boasts around 900 members, functions as an Internet showcase where artists and designers can upload images of their work in their own online gallery. It also serves as a virtual workshop where participants can get inspiration and feedback from other members, write about art, and share information about events.
