Inspiration Prompt #6

June 16th, 2008 by Avital

“A picture is worth a thousand words”, the famous old proverb says. For me it reflects the way in which I see the world, in pictures.

I am a visual person and I always get a complete sensory stimuli when I see something. Either a beautiful or a repulsive sight, both are making me ponder. Both are stimulating my senses and causing neural connections in my brain.

For a long time I used to visualize every spoken communication. I would hear someone speak about his vacation and start visualizing the beach and palm tress. Unfortunately, the same response occurred when someone was mentioning the overflowing sewer in his apartment… I would visualize e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g.

Visual stimuli also helps me to find inspiration. Everything I look at (or visualize) is a possible inspiration catalyst. It might be the colors, the layout, the idea, the use of words and type. Many different things can grab my attention and sometimes cause a flood of ideas in my head.

This week I invite you to get inspired by the fantastic work of a group of graphic designers, called byroglyphics. They work is amazing and has the tendency of causing an idea flood or two.
