For designers, the most important thing to us is the creativity & inspiration it is like our legacy, air breathing and without it we can’t produce ideas that make us feel satisfied about it.

As we know this important legacy (creativity) had 4 major stages:

  1. Preparation
    Collect information or data.
  2. Incubation
    Milling over collected information (keep thinking depending on the data).
  3. Illumination
    Light Bulb Idea: THAT IS! Moment.
  4. Implementation
    Actual Making, creating: Verification.

The most important stages are incubation & illumination > in this particular stage the inspiration can do all the work, but that if it comes fast: \.

But Sometimes as Designers we lose our inspiration, in another word, the inspiration battery is Low 🙂 , and seriously this would be a Big Serious PROBLEM.

But hey don’t worry here are some tips for you about how you can recharge your inspiration and stunning people with your inspired creative ideas and believe me I always use these tips by myself, and the experience as a graphic designer has no relations to the inspiration, it only matters about how you can implement (stag No. 4) your idea.

The point is, if you are junior, senior graphic designer, art director or even a creative director you need to be inspired.

So let’s get inspire…
