  • Love love love this one….!!!  Really cool to hear (and SEE) your creative processes.  I bounce back and forth between hummingbird (ADD) mode and Fox (linear) mode.  I tend to prefer working on a smaller concept and build out (expand), while my business partner (and brother) tends to create chaos and then converge.

    Great stuff.

    • Yeah, my creative process is pretty spazzy. If I invite people in to review my work too early, they can’t see the nugget from the mess.

      • Yep, it’s hard to fully convey the vision while you’re swimming through the muck.  My brother and I teach a program on our (somewhat unconventional) instructional design approach, and we “pull back the curtain” on the chaos and craziness of our process (actually not even sure you can call it a process).  Really interesting, fun, and cathartic to reveal the mess!
