Being a creative and having to constantly generate ideas is difficult. Whether you are designing for other people on a daily basis or whether you are creating inspirational and innovative content for your social media … We have to be continually replenished in order to make more. It’s a good job that we are constantly surrounding by amazing and inspiring things in the world. Whether that be in the natural or by things that other people have designed or created.
- Look on Pinterest for ideas and inspiration. Plenty of designers and branding gurus post their content and material on there.
- Go for a long walk and let your mind wander. The great outdoors and sights and sounds of nature may be the boost that you need to get your mind thrumming and whirring once again.
- Talk with other designers and creators and talk about your ideas. The synergy created when you get together with other creatives can help spark ideas, and more ideas, and they can’t help but snowball from there …-> Have creative accountability partners. People who push you in your field, and who can help you with your current skillset.
- Do things that inspire you; trips to the museum, gallery, roadtrip to a nearby city, retail shopping.
