Creativity is a must in graphic design companies where the designers have to be creative and business minded at the same time. This article enlists some tips to manage both at the same time.
- Keep a notebook handy always
This is because an artist can be struck with an idea at any moment. Always keep a diary handy and fill it with all subconscious thoughts, doodles, simple sketches and ideas as they pop up. Such insights can help you work on from a simple starting point.
- Unplug your devices for a while and take a tech fast
Take some time away from all your devices and free your mind to observe things around you. Creativity in design and business requires external stimulus and this is not merely gained by staring at a monitor. Always take some time out to observe things around you to reflect and absorb.
- Spend time in nature to stay mindful
Some of the best ideas come up when you spend time in nature. It also brings down stress that acts as a creative block. Being in nature helps in slowing down and observe the inspiration all around you. It also keeps you mindful of your actions.
