‘Wow I never thought about it that way.’
‘This is something I never knew I needed all my life!’
‘Why has no one done this before?!’
These are responses of people to things that creative people are bound to get. Bring into the world. It can be their out-of-their-box ingenuity, their unorthodox design sense, or pretty much something that feels like a complete new approach to doing things.
These are the dreamers and more importantly, these are the people who put ‘the mother of invention’ in ‘necessity’. No great things were ever accomplished by those who suffered from an utter lack of imagination.
Even scientists of yore that made ground-breaking discoveries weren’t rigid in their thinking and overall approach to life. That’s all the more ironic when you think that they are bound by the laws of math and physics when it comes to proving their hypothesis and theories, constrained as they are.
But here’s the thing. Creative designers also have a finite number of colors to choose from if you think about it. Yet it is their application of eclectic art styles, their approach and their mindset that’s the reason behind their creative output. By that yardstick, even famed architects don’t let environmental conditions or limitations come in the way of what they design. And we’re sure no one needs further convincing about creativity when it comes to sous chefs serving in swank restaurants-cum-establishments as they prepare some wildly experimental yet great-tasting dishes.
