  • 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.

          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 agree with HotButton on just about everything here --especially the extra question parks.

            What PrintDriver said, is accurate for pro-level work. However, since you're on a budget, you can get by with less.

            Hey, I'm from the middle east, in my twenties, just found my passion for design, and I'm sure I can rock this.
            I know nothing much yet, but I hope I would learn many from here
