We recently came across an innovative idea that has become very popular in the motion graphic’s scene. It was created by Nick Campbell (of Greyscale Gorilla), a motion designer and iPhone app designer who lives in Chicago.
Nick is very interested in helping others fight the dreaded mind-blocks and constraints that sometimes make the creative mind go crazy, and he has devised a system that helps people let go of those influences and let their creativity flow.
He gives his readers a theme, which can be a word, a phrase or a category and they create a 5 second video of whatever their mind takes them to. Nick then picks a winner and features this video along with some of the entries on his blog. Sometimes they may have prizes, but overall it’s just a great way to fill your mind with visual inspiration from people around the world.
