What's your creative process?

Having a process also allows you to think of ideas that may not be easily apparent. What's one thing you do to help come up with new ideas? How can you incorporate this into a repeatable framework (for yourself as well as those you collaborate with)?

My creative proccess is when I start a new content project I start creating every single idea I have good or bad. Being able to visualize the content helps me improve my original ideas, or even come up with a completley new idea.

My creative process starts with writing down any topics I have off the top of my head. Then I will look into the latest trends/fads happening in the beauty industry. Finally, I look at my competitors to see what they are talking about, that way I can add my two cents to the conversation.

What's your creative process?

Having a process allows me to think of ideas easily but sometimes I ran out of ideas. In that case, I would love to take a walk, go outside and take a cup of tea and sometimes I ask my friends and colleagues to help me out of this. I always took note when an idea came to mind.

My ideas are generated majorly by consistent consumption of contents. The content are of different varieties of topics either good or bad. 

 

I also generate content ideas from movies especially american fictional movies.

What's your creative process?

When it first comes to a subject, I take my time to completely comprehend the phrase. When these ideas come to mind, I would then jot down as many as I could. I would adore taking a walk, running, or doing something soothing if I ran out of ideas. I would always carry a notebook while doing this in case something new occurred. I would then return and conduct additional research on my ideas after my walk. Additionally, I would love to speak with my friends or colleagues to get their opinions.

I do my best to learn as much as I can when I can. I will be watching a show and have an idea that is derived from the show that would work for a project I am working on. My brain is malleable by what it takes in and that translates when it comes to crafting new branding and content ideas. By creating a consistent schedule, I could more effectively incorporate this practice.

Research and finding inspiration are key. Then, I save all of what I think is useful in a word document and start brainstorming. I think it should definitely be incorporated into a framework since it can take a long time.

What's your creative process?

If I were to do it alone, the process varies for me. Most of the time, it is spontaneous. So when I sit down to intentionally extract a creative idea, most of the time my head is empty. So my solution is to sit down with somebody to brainstorm with. Reading and researching before doing so also helps a lot.

Reasearch, research and more research. Looking for insights and inspiration really goes a long way for me.

What's your creative process?

My creative process:

1. Researching - asking questions

2. Finding inspiration - from books, art, music, existing content, etc. 

3. Resting - staying away from anything related to my goals

4. Ideating - brainstorming and combining all the ideas I picked up

5. Deciding - on which ones to keep, develop, and implement

6. Creating - executing my decisions and revising

I couldn't have written it better.  We have our own ways of being creative.  Sometimes the best ideas happen from accidents-serendipity.

I follow a decent process for me to discover an idea and to find out any solutions whenever I feel out. 

I start with reading and watching video contents and extract the valuable insights, after that I go out to a quiet place or into the haert of nature where ther's no men around, where I can see and feel the nature only. That helps in keeping me mind refreshed and slowly I find my answers there. 

It really works for me and I have applied this multiple times.

Read everything, listen to podcasts, go for long runs, intentionally attend to background details in movies and shows, then run and take notes and have deep conversations with diverse thinkers.

This is definitely an area to think about and revisit. I never analise my creative process. Seems like I should.

I guess first I have a will or a desire for something. Then I start my "solution process" which is how to achieve that goal. Then research may follow and then ideas start flowing until one or a few get put into action to deliver the desired goal
