It happens to the best of us, getting stuck in your creative process. Sometimes you just can’t get started with your project or you are still looking for a creative angle. We have put together 4 tips to get those creative ideas flowing and to unblock your imagination
Know when the time is right for you
For a lot of people, the late morning is a great time to get creative. A lot of people tend to get laid back in the afternoon. But for some people, the evening is the perfect time to get creative. Get to know your creative schedule, try different times and see what works for you!
Get inspiration out of your comfort zone
Of course, it’s good to know what’s happening in the field you are working in. But you can get so much inspiration outside your field. For example, if you want to design a new brochure, don’t look for inspiration from other brochures. Look further and get inspired.
Take a break
If you’ve got the time, take your time. Take a break and let all of those ideas sink in. When you’ll let your ideas sink in, there is a big chance that you will have more fruitful ideas the second time around.
