Hey guys, it's Liv here. People often ask me what my number 1 tip is for beginners OR the one thing I wish I’d done early on in my digital career….
I've got one better! Here's the one thing I wish I knew earlier on in my career. Simply: it’s always a good idea to have multiple sources of creative inspiration.
For me, inspiration comes from all kinds of places beyond the likes of Pinterest and mindless Instagram searches…
I find joy and creative inspiration from things like: peoples' personal experiences, street art, mid-century architecture, flowers and sitting at a cafe and people-watching! ⠀
I encourage you to branch out and start taking on inspiration from all walks of life, you never know what will spark your next brilliant idea!⠀
The photo used in this blog is a perfect example of this. It's a TINY portion of a gorgeous street art mural I found at Kirra Beach in Queensland. The colours spoke to me, the fact that a person stood in the street with a bucket of paint and a brush mattered to me and the way that the image told a story made a difference in my choice of posting it rather than a staged shot from Pinterest.
There is no right or wrong way to gather creative inspiration but I certainly wouldn't advise in having only one avenue.
What's your go-to source for creative inspiration? I'd love to hear!
