Kelli Anderson’s video this week was probably one of my favorite I’ve watched all quarter in any of my classes. It was interesting, at first, I was kind of bored and was thinking “Ugh, this is going to be a long video.” But, then she started talking about her theory of disruptive wonder and show how she approached this in her creative life. I loved it! It was one of those moments when you think, gosh, I wish I had designed that. What I liked the most about how Anderson described things was it was light-hearted. Oftentimes when I read, or listen to people talk about shaking things up, it always seems to be in a more aggressive manner. Anderson was fun, she made me laugh and it inspired me to want to follow her guidance in my own creative process. I am completely open to disruptive wonder and would love for it to be part of my creative process. I feel like disruptive wonder is what graphic design is all about, it’s not just about doing what people ask, but adding a little spice into the ordinary brochure, website, or business card. This isn’t completely new notion to me, but I have to admit it was the first time that I actually felt the desire to want to try harder. Again, I loved Anderson’s approach to design and I admired the level of fun and joy she expressed in each example.
