Getting into motion is known to release the magical chemicals inside our brains that open up our eyes and make us connect those brain lobes for the best of outcomes. I think there is something about the process of mentally cataloging what needs to be done what needs to happen; where how and what? That brings the creative ideas box into the control center of our minds. When you start arranging all the different elements you need to get the work done i.e. stock photos, copy sections what is needed form elements etc. it starts building on your creativity.

Get to know your subject matter what why when who and eventually the how will prevail sift through everything you have gathered go through it and find spaces and ideas, look at how best to display or use certain elements what is the outcome ask yourself how you feel about the elements the requirements and everything else. Truly dive into the project look at it from every angle, what will it be perceived as how will it be taken and so your idea will start forming around all your input
Step Three: Yes Indeed now you don’t think!
Allow your thoughts to float away while going through the materials and being immersed in it, relax your mind. Just allow it to do what it does get familiar with the matter. Let your mind open up to the creativity within and simmer in this new building plan and wait what is that coming through.
