The secret to creativity

“….. is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes and having fun.”

The biggest misconception about creativity is that it involves a moment of magical creation when the incredible appears out of thin air. The truth is less romantic. Everything comes from somewhere. All ideas have been thought before by all artists. Everyone starts somewhere so I might as well come clean from the beginning. Before I started this website my creativity credentials were non existent. I had no tangible experience as a writer, designer, marketer or entrepreneur. All i can say for myself is that i read voraciously and draw fairly well.You’d think a chump like me wouldn’t stand a chance in the hyper competitive online world!

If you want to be more creative you have to learn people who are smarter than you are unless you find a mentor, this means you are learning from observation. The clues to creativity are everywhere. You need to gather them and apply that understanding to your own creative work. Creativity is such a vital part of life. Starting to draw will give you an easy way to express your creativity. In an instant drawing and creativity can become a meditative state, a state where you are related and your whole system can regenerate. What do all successful designers have in common? The ability to approach complex challenges with simple, yet innovative solutions. We need to approach our work from an entirely different angle. Design, at it’s heart, is all about solving problems. There’s a reason great artists are always clustered together both geographically and chronologically. Interacting with creative individuals makes you more creative. Rival artists exchange techniques and competition increases efforts. The present is the ideal age for creative people. The internet has connected everything allowing us to draw inspiration from classic works of art and our finest contemporaries without leaving the couch.
