Did you cringe a little when you read the title? If you’re an artist, you’ve probably heard that particular critique at least a few times. Everyone is looking for ways to be and stay creative. Granted there are synonyms – relevant, compelling, innovative, even jazzy – but they are called ‘creative juices’ for a reason. Whether you are an artist or a non-creative who works with artists, couldn’t we all use a Red Bull-strength dose of creative juices?
But when there is a deadline every weekend, it’s difficult enough to stay current on design trends and nearly impossible to stay inspired. All too often we end up sacrificing design for deadline and that can lead to despair and ultimately burnout.
Refueling your creativity is closer and easier than you might think. This workshop will identify ways for you to infuse creativity not only into the design process, but also into the artists and writers… even if you’re the only artist. Even staff meetings can become a catalyst for creativity, if you ask yourself: Can you make it more creative?
