About this course

To find ways to access creativity successfully and work with concepts. Whilst a large proportion of a designer's work involves administration, the success of a scheme often relies on the creativity used in answering the brief.

Course Description

Creativity is a crucial element of the designer’s skills and is often illusive when most needed. This workshop will discuss the procedures that help the individual access their creativity and overcome “designer’s block”. Delegates will gain a better understanding of how creativity can be released, and be able to access their own creative competence and free their imagination. Practising designers often report how beneficial they find these techniques both personally and professionally. The day will culminate in a “Concepts” workshop where delegates can apply their creativity to develop unique design concepts for interiors.
