Prompt #1

Think like a traveller

You've probably heard the phrase 'traveling broadens the mind'. When we travel, we become aware of the details and things that stand out because they're new and different. In our day-to-day lives, we're often oblivious to our surroundings.

Try adopting a traveler's mindset to gain fresh perspectives in your design work. Take an alternative route or explore a new neighbourhood, paying attention to the details, colours, and unique features you encounter. You might be pleasantly surprised by the hidden gems and unexpected inspiration that is already here in your everyday life.

Prompt #2

Surrender to the process

“The creative process is a process of surrender, not control” – Julia Cameron

Our creative process thrives when we let go and allow inspiration to guide us. Embrace the freedom to experiment, take risks, and trust your instincts. By surrendering to the flow of creativity, your confidence will grow naturally.
