Imagining The ‘Creative Process’ As Abstract Illustrations | visual data | Scoop.it

Toronto-based designer Scott Wise has illustrated the ‘creative process’—imagining it as abstract illustrations. 

In the series, the elements commonly-known to those in the creative industry—‘core idea’, ‘brainstorm’, ‘ideation’, ‘iteration’, ‘refinement’, and ‘feedback loop’—are visually summarized.

Siempre hablamos de los mind maps. Si le añadimos creatividad además al hecho de describir la creatividad en sí, el resultado es asombroso.

A Living, Breathing Infographic: A Look at the Web's First Socially Generative Visualization | visual data | Scoop.it
The idea of a Socially Generative Visualization originated out of a section of the design handbook INFOGRAPHICS.

What’s the next step when you’re looking to give your viewers a deeper interaction with your content? Apparently, we should be looking at “socially generative visualizations,” a novel approach that combines the best aspects of traditional static Infographics and classic interactive interfaces with a new purpose: “to allow the viewer to interact with the content in a more meaningful way by contributing to and actually being a part of the measured data that is displayed.”
