go create something

just watched this video, which was dug up by alreadybeenchewed. it has some great stuff for anyone who spends time in a creative realm — designers, producers, writers, artists … worship service programmers. (it’s 43 minutes, put out there by BELIEF, a west coast design studio). here are some bytes:

“Design is a lifestyle. You have to be immersed in it. Everywhere you go, everything you see, you have to be influenced by it.”

“Avoid trends. Set new design aesthetics.”

“The role of a creative director is to shape the visions that the designers are passionate about.”

“Cannibalize the world. Pull from the world and not just the industry you’re in.”

“The secret of creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.” Albert Einstein

“What is originality? Undetected plagiarism.” D.W.R. Inge

“Brilliance exists in the broad search and the clever linkage of one seemingly unrelated event to another.”

“A wondrous harmony arises from joining together the seemingly unconnected.” Heraclitus c. 500 BC

“Get other people involved, because they don’t see the world the way you do.” (the whole “change your perspective” portion about 20-25 minutes in!)

“Creativity is the opposite of routine.”

“Many eyes go through the meadow, but few see the flowers in it.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Limitations lead to creativity.”

what stands out to you?
