Creative Identity and how important is it? Creative identity is what we associate our creativity with; your platform or craft. It can alter depending on your creative influences, and social identity. However, the phrase hasn’t officially been coined.
“Work it, make it, do it, makes us, harder, better, faster, stronger”(West 2007) iconic lines from Kanye West’s Stronger. Sampled from Guy Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter’s (Daft Punk) song Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger. The Graduation album changed Kanye’s entire creative identity as it was very synth driven and no longer carried the jazz influence from his last album Late Registration.
