LIA Cast 201 - The Influence of Constraint (Rebroadcast)

And old saw we haven’t used on the Lean Into Art Cast in some time is “limitations breed creativity.” What we typically mean by this is that limiting one’s choices in a creative endeavor removes ambiguity and often provides a starting point. It can also present interesting creative problems to solve.

But what about the tools or platform you choose? Don’t they introduce constraints as well? Can these constraints enhance the work, or are they a roadblock we have to work around? When do we abandon the tool or platform altogether?

Join us for a discussion on the unforeseen influence in the tools you use.

LIA Cast 283 - Generating Lists of Ideas is a Learnable Skill

Getting ideas out of your head, gathering a whole bunch of them all at once is a useful creative exercise in so many situations!

Jerzy and Rob explore different ways they use to generate ideas which sometimes feels like trying to get water from an empty bucket and other times playful and like winning a game.

In the first half of the show they’ll do some live brainstorming and idea gathering to rename a project, then in the second half they’ll dig further into situations we find group brainstorms and solo idea generation useful.
