Every month in 2018, Dropbox sponsored Nicer Tuesdays events that showcased the work of 26 artists, including illustrators, graphic designers, typographers, 3D image makers, photographers, and printmakers. Pairing up creatives based in 16 cities around the world, the project was an experiment in intercontinental collaboration—and we were dazzled by the results.
Earlier this year, we traveled to The Gathering in Banff, Canada to meet with marketing leaders from the world’s most-coveted brands and learn how they guided their companies to cult status. While we were there, we had a chance to chat with Nick Street, Head of Global Marketing Strategy at Vans. Here’s how he helps support ideas from his internal team, rather than outsourcing to creative agencies.
Last February, Australian musician G Flip uploaded her track “About You” to the Triple J Unearthed website, where fans can discover new music from emerging artists. Within hours, the track became a viral hit, quickly earning rave reviews from tastemakers like Pitchfork. Within weeks, G Flip was performing her first solo show in front of an audience at SXSW. That was just the beginning of her rocket ride. Since then, she’s signed with Future Classic and toured internationally. So how is Georgia Flipo navigating the journey from rock drummer to pop star to sought-after collaborator? Here’s what we learned during a recent interview.
Important information can live in any number of tools, and we’ve been working to bring all of that data together in one place. Today, we’re taking a big step towards making that a reality for more of the tools you rely on every day. We’re launching Dropbox Extensions, a new way to work seamlessly in web-based apps while keeping everything organized in Dropbox—without additional integration work or coding.
We’re always looking for ways to streamline workflows for individuals and teams using Dropbox. Often that means deeply integrating Dropbox with the tools people use every day. Architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) companies in particular are seeing the value of Dropbox as a connective tissue for solutions specific to their industry. Today, we’re expanding our support for AEC tools, with a new integration for construction project management solution Procore.
Data privacy and security have always been critical to doing business online, but these days the challenges are increasingly complex—and there’s more at stake than ever. We believe businesses shouldn’t have to choose between security and ease of use, which is why we’ve built security seamlessly into our platform. And with the new suite of expanded security integrations we announced this week, Dropbox Business customers now have even more ways to work fluidly while working securely.
Our automatic camera uploads feature has been hugely popular for users on our Dropbox Basic, Plus, and Professional plans for individuals. And one of the most popular requests we’ve received has been to bring this feature over to Dropbox Business. We have great news: today, we’re making automatic camera uploads available to teams on Dropbox Business.
