Use this list of innovative visuals as a starting point to help spark interesting new ideas. Grace Coddington says it best "Always keep your eyes
open. Keep watching because whatever you see can inspire you." You can choose a single source of inspiration and walk through the day looking for interesting new forms and examples of your chosen medium, or you can look for inspiration in a variety of different forms. Everything you see and touch has the potential to disrupt your normal patterns of thinking and introduce you to fresh new perspectives. We must walk through life with our eyes wide open, looking for inspiration in everything we see, like many creative exercises, this one may seem simple at first. You may not trust the process, but keep practicing you will find that it can generate unexpectedly productive outcomes.

Using Visuals in the Brainstorming Process
Clearly state the problem or challenge you need to solve.
Pick one of the innovative visuals as a starting point.
Look carefully at the visual for a few minutes.
Look at it again taking note of the image, the design, the patterns, the lines, the objects, the message, the hidden meaning, the colours, the shapes and anything else that attracts your attention.
Use one of these characteristics as a starting point to force new connections and point your thinking in new directions.
