Picasso Trigger Learning To Think & Create Websites Like A Child

Picasso Trigger Learning To Think & Create Websites Like A Child | Design Revolution | Scoop.it

"I spent a lifetime learning to draw like a child." Picasso

The hardest thing to do is do less. The hardest mind to recover is the exploratory mind, the mind before judgement. When we recover the playful mind, the simple easily rewarding routine of play, our designs run free like Picasso's bull.

Gives Your Brand an Identity

 

**Visual content draws people in, letting viewers better understand your brand's identity

 

Drives User Engagement

 

**If you've ever read a book with a child, you probably know they find pictures more interesting than words; but are adults really that different?
