Traditional Design Methods that lead to New and Innovative Ideas

Some methods of revitalizing your creative side include some traditional methods of design and the process of building new ideas. In this day and age, everything is done behind a computer screen. Why not try and take out a pad of paper and a pen and jot down ideas and sketches to stimulate new idea growth.

Are you getting in the routine of webinars and online tutorials? How about trying in-person seminars or conferences where you can network and share ideas. Building up a social network outside of the internet allows for a more personal and interactive relationship with others in your field.

After meeting with clients or interviews are you sending a thank you back? I don’t mean by simple text through a smartphone but by e-mails or even a letter through snail-mail. E-mails are great in that it’s quick “stationary” and widely used. Writing a traditional letter isn’t as fast as an e-mail but it’s unique and will tell you apart from the rest.
