During my time in GRDS 701 I think the most profound thing I learned about myself and my creative process would be that I need to slow down. I need to let the process come to me instead of trying to chase it down. When I let ideas sit and marinate they often develop into something more than I could have even imagined.
During this class I also saw the power of creative group brainstorming. If you have an open mind you can use the group to help you expand and push your original ideas. I feel like the encouraging atmosphere and helpful suggestions helped me to get rid of the fear or uncertainty that I had. During the class I feel like this was the area where I experienced disruptive wonder.
My graphic design process has changed immensely. I have slowed down and have learned to document every step in the process. I realized that it is during the process that the real discoveries and disruptive wonders come about. I have even tried to bring this process into my current job and I am beginning to see great results.
