How Creative People Arrive at Good Ideas

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This is not a panel about “Aha! moments.” There will be no talk of lightning getting caught in a bottle or any other receptacle. We’re pretty sure that would kill you.
This is a conversation about process. While plenty of magical ideas have been brought into the world thanks to serendipitous moments or surprise flashes of brilliance, the most successful members of creative fields like comedy, advertising, and design have come to rely on something more repeatable than chance.
We’ll dig into the minutia of the rather unsexy systems that are implemented to produce very sexy ideas. Brainstorming, team building, idea vetting, client pleasing, and which color Post-it note makes you most creative will be just some of the topics explored. All the while, discussions will be steered more toward process and what one school of thought can teach the other.
By one way or another *ahem on-stage torture* we’ll find out exactly how the world’s most creative companies became exactly that.
