Step-by-step, Chris guides you through the working principles of genuine creativity – Insight + Ideas + Impact = Inspiring Opportunities. The book completely demystifies the creative process and includes case studies and imaginative practical exercises to help kick-start your ideas:
- 'Related Worlds': looking at where your issue has been solved before in a different area. It may be as bizarre as Xtreme sports or dental hygiene!
- 'My clever friends' – imagine what somebody else might do in your situation
- 'Go Visual' – capturing your issue without using words. You can sculpt, collage, whittle, whatever!
