Being creative is fun. It’s also a challenge.
Staying creative can drive ya nuts!
Let’s face it, we’ve all seen lists of various ways to improve on our creativity. There is no all-encompassing list, and, no doubt, if we shared our lists with one another, there would be overlap.
I recently came across this video in a post by Kevin Allen on Ragan’s PR Daily and couldn’t help but smile and chuckle a few times because of their take on compiling the list, not so much the elements on the list (they’re all valid and we should take them to heart).
The video link below is from Japanese design firm To-Fu. It highlights 29 techniques designed to get the creative juices flowing. I’ve had good success with some of these techniques.
However, #4, Getting Away from the Computer,
#10 Be Open,
and #21 Break the Rules . . . we probably don’t do enough.
Enjoy! It’s a little different.
