Tell us about your work

"There’s so many ideas to be had out there, you just have to pop that thought bubble.

THERE'S A PROBLEM WITH HOW PEOPLE LOOK FOR
INSPIRATION AND THE GAME OF CREATIVITY IS HERE TO FIX IT.

At some point or another, no matter your skill level, we all run into a creative block sometimes. You probably already use some tools to help you out of that block like Pinterest, Behance, Dribbble or Instagram. But there's a big problem with that.

The problem is that using another person's designs as inspiration often leads you to a result that might be a little too similar to theirs and not very YOU.


The Game of Creativity exists to help people like you become more inspired by your own creative thoughts. Creativity is rooted in the idea of making connections between 2 or more things and we help you do just that in a quick/fun way."

THE GAME OF CREATIVITY - A tool to remove that overwhelming feeling of staring at a blank page.

Do you have any creative habit

"Everyday, I write. Not to be good at writing, but to organize my thoughts, findings and daily to-do lists. I often go back and read things to be able to find more connections for new creations or to develop a better process with whatever it is I AM trying to get better at. (Which changes weekly)"

 

Our point of view

In this section we interpret the work from our perspective and describe why we selected it to be featured. 

Pop that thought bubble is a spot on illustration on the creative thinking process. More often than not, we are trapped in our day-in-day-out neural thinking pathways. 

One way to achieve creative thinking - that is thinking of novel and useful ideas for a given prompt - is to force yourself thinking in new ways. 

There are different approaches to do this. Letting your subconscious mind take over is certainly one and very powerful. Your subconsciousness cares very little about rationale approaches and can combine far off and unrelated things to come up with truly novel images.

You can practice this thinking style, too. There are many good techniques and (card) games ;) that can help you pop that thought bubble.
