  • Brainstorming Methods

    Just trying to come up with new and original pieces... Curious as to how everyone comes up with their stuff!
    I mostly write down random stuff in my notebook then try to break it down to a solid concept.
    Looking at inspiration works but i don't want to take from them.
    Any ideas/methods would be awesome!

    It might sound like a riddle, but the solution usually stems directly from carefully defining the problem.

      For fresh ideas I usually write words, a series of words, or made up words, and then build a visual from there.

      I also respond to patterns and rhythms, space and time.

      Textures are part of the same process.

        There is a ton of info online about expanding the ways you're creative. Use "idea generation" as your search terms. Seriously, tons of info.

          I guess like B, it helps to really have all the background information before I start. It's extremely difficult (for me, anyways) to create something if I don't know much about the client or why they want that particular thing designed.

          Then, I get out of the house. Go places, see new things, try something new. My best ideas come to me when I'm not actually working.

            I'm guessing that renting a party girl means exactly what one might suspect.

            As for the logo, it looks like a peel-off sticker of some kind. The type is mathematically centered, but visually...

            What do you mean by ''gig design''?

            As for the thing itself, I might put Perth on its own line under Party Girls. The whole thing kind of gives a mixed message. Is it a modeling agency? Is...
