And remember, we can talk about making a difference, we can make a difference, or we can do both. — Debbie Millman

Absinthe’s Raison d'Être

Creativity is intoxicating. It’s as mind-altering to consume as it is mysterious and oft-misunderstood. It’s something best shared among those who are lucky enough to possess it—especially given that the creative world is no longer siloed as it once was, and disciplines blend from one to the next, collaborating, corroborating, forming a universal chorus of the now. 

We hear the chorus. 

And no matter which form one’s creativity takes—design, literature, art, journalism, music, food, culture—we toast it here in our den of like-minded thinkers with the same ether at their core. We embrace original thought. Diverse output. Personality. Point of view. Bias. The intimate; the universal. The meaningful; the meaningless. We crave what’s in the air, what’s in the zeitgeist—

But perhaps most simply put, Absinthe is, at its heart, a website and magazine about creativity that matters.

Santé.

But perhaps most simply put, this venture is, at its heart, a website and magazine about
creativity that matters, no matter what form it takes.
