Creativity is such an important part of this profession that you have to feed it and keep it preciously and on a daily basis (or as much as you can). Here ‘s a little video that I’ve discovered thanks to Denita Tizard .

Sometimes, your mind just can’t keep up,too much paper work , studies, tasks that you don’t like but can’t be avoid, no time to think about creating new stuff, suddenly you feel your brain is about to explode… When this happens, the best thing to do, is take a break:
1# Have a long walk
2# Meet up with some friends
3# Do some sport (not my favorite one…)
4# go photo hunting
5# read something that has anything to do with art.
6# listen to music
Basically, get out from your computer or studio! There is a Life out there. Then, when you come back, take the decision to change something on your daily routine, because is not healthy for your creativity to be in the edge that way, you should always have a daily “Me” time. Obviously, it’s easier to say it than do it, but if you don’t try… and if you need more ideas, Mike brown, from Brainzooming, will give 26 ones!
And this was my “Me” time today: photos hunting with my men. What was yours?

We usually tend to think that the best way to get the attention of people, it’s to offer something nice,clean. Well, sometimes to stand out from the crowd you may have to be a bit nasty. This is the video was made by N10, a Swiss branding and communication agency. I found this campaign very funny and unusual but if you think about it not far from the truth…
Don’t you have sometimes the impression that new technologies go to fast or aren’t amazed to see what we are able to do with anything? Daizi Zheng was asked to design a eco-friendly for Nokia. Et voila, the first phone with a bio battery that work with softdrink! You fill up the phone with sugary drink and once you don’t have battery empty it and fill it up again. A single charge is four time longer than a regular. Great for the environ but let you think about what we are actually drinking… Please check her website, she does some cool stuff. Have a nice sunday.
