Yesterday we saw here that famous logos can have hidden meanings, almost like easter eggs designers use to enrich them. But how do those logos come to life? Designer Aaron Draplin explains in this video how his creative process works.
There is no concept more politically important today than creativity. I’ll give four reasons why but first a definition.
‘Creative’ has narrow, broader and even broader connotations in English. It’s the last of these we should be most interested in.
The narrow meaning immediately leads one to think of activities directly associated with the arts.
The broader sense encompasses those activities associated with what Richard Florida calls the ‘creative class’. This includes the arts but also involves activities such as architecture, design, advertising, video game development etc.
Finally there is the broadest meaning which implies an act that is unique to an individual’s own capacities or vision. This includes actions which can range very widely from developing your own food recipes, setting up a charity to address a local problem, establishing a website to network a group with a shared interest, writing your own music, building your own house, writing a blog post and so on and so on. But the defining characteristics are the unique, pro-active and self-determined nature of the activity.
