As goes the famous adage, “Great minds think alike” it only makes more sense that the creatives follow each other’s work in quest of inspiration and ideas. Pablo Picasso once even went so far as saying that "Good artists copy, great artists steal." Even more controversial was Einstein’s quote about what he deemed to be the secret to creativity; "The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources."
Creativity is encouraged and relied upon heavily in some fields. Even the lines of work that have little to do with creativity are now venturing into new horizons in order to break the monotony and be better able to reach out to their audiences. New and innovative ideas are welcomed in today’s era in order to boost growth and garner the interest of the audience. Ideas help one explore and experiment.
