Quick, without thinking, what does inspiration mean to you?
For me, it’s usually being so moved by something beautiful or innovative to the point that you must do something.
Is there one task that always requires some inspiration to help you accomplish?
Organizing/cleaning. For creative tasks, I force myself even if I’m not feeling creative because otherwise it wouldn’t get done. Eventually, always, it comes.
When you’re in a creative rut, where is the first place you go/look to be inspired?
Blogs or music but not usually music blogs. I like design blogs. Everything looks so pretty and possible on design blogs.
I am obsessed with inspiration boards. Do you keep anything like this (board, journal, etc.) to help you catalog bits of inspiration?
No, although I think I might benefit from it.
