Ever wondered how to improve your creativity and stay inspired? Why some designers have been a lot more successful than others? Well read on...
2 Keep it simple - don't try to say or do too many things at once
3 Stop thinking, start feeling -creativity is driven by the heart, we respond more to emotions than logic
4 Get angry - channel the things that annoy/upset you into more creative tasks rather than getting stressed
5 Juxtaposition - don't be afraid to place two things next to one another that wouldn't normally sit together - even in your head
6 When the world zigs, zag - look in the opposite direction to everyone else
7 Avoid cynics - they drain your confidence - see number one
8 Ask Why? a lot - question everything like a child
9 Philosophy - always be looking, thinking, watching. Absorb everything around you
10 Remove your headphones! - don't cut yourself off from your environment.
