Ten Scientifically Proven Facts About Creativity, inspired by an infographic from @designmantic 

I can't think of a better way to say it than they do on their blog:
"It doesn't really matter what you love doing, anyone can be creative if they put their heart and soul into it."
I’m putting number eight into action on this list by telling you to... Go be creative!


This week’s recap notes: From LifeHack How to Stop Being Average From Now On, Practical Way to Largely Improve yourself, Most Difficult yet Comforting Thing to Accept About Life and 7 Philosophical Quotes Full of Wisdom

Came across these lists on Pinterest a few weeks ago. Really enjoyed the condensed bullet point list-style of their life hacks. So here are four that I wanted to share with you. My favourite quote from them:

“There is nothing good or bad, But thinking makes it so”
William Shakespeare, Hamlet


This week's #booknotes, part 10 of my notes on Creative Strategy and the Business of Design by Douglas Davis - More on Understanding Features, Benefits & Values and tips on copywriting

This week, it was world book day, and what better way is there to celebrate than making some book notes? I’ve been pushing myself to write more blogs. I’m not the best at putting together long format content, but reading more books and making these notes has really helped me to develop these skills.
Preparation for when I write my nudenotes book… eventually!

Value In Design - Part II

These are my study notes for the second part of my blog article of the same name, which you can read here.  Make sure you check out the first part of the blog first, to get the most out of this one.

This time, I focus on how to manipulate the value ratio outlined in the previous notes to create better design solutions for clients and businesses. Also, In the blog is a link to get a copy of all my notes in the series in a handy pdf. Its completely free, no email required!

The examples were really tricky to find without inside knowledge of the products, I’m not sure my old design business lecturer would be happy with them all. Let me know if you think of any better ones.
