DROP THE DEVICES – GO OUTSIDE!
Behind every product there is a creative person. Behind every company there is a creative idea. Get your creative juices flowing and GO OUTSIDE! Despite my use and exposure to digital media, we all need a break from it on occasion. I crave to get outside and be in contact with more tangible things in this world. Stepping outside to breathe in the fresh smells of bread being baked at the local bakery. Visiting the teller at the bank to make a deposit, rather than online, who asks me how things are doing with my family. Exercising while flipping through a magazine, or bending a favorite page of a book, and not having to worry about damaging an electronic device at the gym.
TURN IT OFF AND TUNE IT OUT
Every day, I make it a point to take a break from the computer and enjoy the surroundings around me. Turn off – the television, iPod, computer, iPad and other devices, but rather step outside into the world and appreciate mother nature and the artistic talents of others that surround you. The architects drafting designs for builders to craft ornate structures that create an impressive city skyline. Mother nature giving birth to Spring awakening the leaves, trees and flowers, bringing sweet smells of sprouting plants on a sunny day that fills our lungs with fresh air and lifts our spirits. Roam the stores along the streets and see how each one sets itself apart and a friendly smile can go a long way to greet someone. Go for walks admiring the beauty in the world and get inspired by the creativity of others. I do it each and every day!
EVERYTHING AND EVERYWHERE IS ART
As an avid shopper, my interests include retail marketing, learning about new fashion trends, examining consumer behavior, and helping others to shape business with strategic ideas that reach a wide audience with new innovations. I’m inspired by color, interior design, photography, clothes, new cultures, flowers, music, dance, discovering new places and exploring the charm and people of different towns. The influx of eCommerce, online coupons, and mobile technology have created a competitive environment for retailers to attract consumers to their stores. The media is a buzz about the latest technology, location-based mobile marketing advancements, but take the time to appreciate the real visual spectacle before your eyes. In some stores, the clothes are displayed as if they are paintings in a museum adorning the shelves, and the window displays become a canvas to create beautiful masterpieces. I enjoy discovering new fashionable finds along my travels that help to get my creative juices flowing and it inspires my work.
Retailers such as Barneys, Anthropoligie, Bloomingdales and others have devised experiences with great focus on visual design to stimulate the senses and connect with one’s imagination and desires.
There is art in everything from paper, clipboards, hangers, to little pieces of crystal suspended from the ceiling that take on new form. That’s impressive. Grab something and get your creative juicing flowing by making a masterpiece of your own to display your artistic talents for others to admire.
