Life has been super busy in June, in between projects and family I had the pleasure of attending the HOW Design Conference in Denver. It was an amazing and super inspiring experience!! I would recommend anyone working in the creative field to attend. I’ll definitely be going back next year!
I’m sharing my sketchy notes, miss-spellings and all. Hey, I’m a professional artists not a writer and I remember best when I have a visual :-)
Notes from Stephan Mamaw's workshop Caffeine for the Creative Team: Turning Brainstorming into Brainsqualling
One of my favorite highlights has to be attending Stephan Mamaw’s workshop Caffeine for the Creative Team: Turning Brainstorming into Brainsqualling, where we rolled up our sleeves and had permission to have fun and be silly. He ran thru the 13 Commandments of Brainaqualling and paired it with a series of warm up exercise from his books.
Stephane demonstrating his point. Creativity is a Habit!
My team's caffine infused supplies
Teams of 3 had to create what they thought Big Foot would look like. Our's was Willy Nelson inspired.
Teams of 2 had to construct a amusement park ride for a bug. My partner and I created a Zipline for a Fly. (I put my caffeine to good use by using my coffee cup as a platform area.)
Teams of 2 were instructed to creat the ultimate desk. This is my teams.
