Brainstorming is a process for developing creative solutions to problems, inside and outside the tradeshow design world. It goes back as far as 1953, when Alex Faickney Osborn, an advertising manager, popularized the method in his book, Applied Imagination. Ten years later, he proposed that teams could double their creative output with brainstorming (Osborn, 1963). Here are quick 7 ways to do some power brainstorming. Good Luck!
If you are brainstorming Alone, 'Simply Allow'.
As the great Chinese mystic, Lao Tzu (500 BC) mentions in "Tao Te Ching":
There are ways but the Way is uncharted ...
There are ways but the Way is uncharted;
There are names but not nature in words:
Nameless indeed is the source of creation
But things have a mother and she has a name.
The secret waits for the insight
Of eyes unclouded by longing;
Those who are bound by desire
See only the outward container.
These two come paired but distinct
By there names.
Of all things profound,
Say that their pairing is deepest,
The gate to the root of the world.
Translated by Raymond B. Blakney, 1955
In my writings I am often an explorer, a map maker, sometimes a voyager of the human mind and other times: a creator who is tormented by the inner longing to expand, express and delight !
