Fun Process = Happy Creative

Eskil Steenberg on creating your creative environment.

At FITC, Eskil Steenberg showed us some tools he’s created that facilitate real time animation, modelling and film editing. Overall the tools were efficient & intuitive. You can try out some of his software (most is open source) available for download on his website.

His philosophy is that creating work should be fun… and that if the process (the software) is great, you’ll produce better work in the end.

In his online action adventure game, called Love, he gives gamers the opportunity to play out this philosophy by building and changing the worlds around them. Users are constantly changing the world and when Eskil logs in, the environment looks completely different then the game he originally created. The game never stops evolving, as players build their own communication systems and tools in their worlds.

Another pitch Eskil presented for creating effective process, is to cut out management and letting the software facilitate the process so that people feel enabled to make creative work efficiently.

He finished off the presentation by challenging us to create our own tools like creative greats before us.

“Our entire industry is in trouble. The 3-d world is dominated by Autodesk and the 2-d world dominated by Adobe. No one is inventing new tools … if you invent new tools you will invent new art.”

TED

If I could, I would copy and paste the whole TED website right here because I love it all! But, because one must start somewhere, I have embedded a few favorites below.

Toolbox // What’s in a name?

I am often asked by clients and friends how to decide upon a name for their website or company. I always suggest that they start with a short, sweet and memorable domain name.

Here’s a list of site I use to help me brainstorm and check availability:

Brainstorming // domai.nr
Word match // dotomator and suggest.name
Random Web 2.0 name ideas // dotomator – web 2.0
Recently expired domains // stuckdomains
Alternative versions of names you want // domainsbot
Availability // domize and domaintyper

Design a better system

I am fascinated with this design by Studio Gorm in the Netherlands and I’d love to see it actually working in a home. They’ve designed a system that uses gravity australian pokies online, decomposition and plants to conserve energy and make less waste. I am definably going to reconsider my kitchen layout and figure out how to implement some of these concepts.

Can’t stop problem solving

Do any other creatives out there find that you are addicted to problem solving? Not the important problems… like why is their starvation in the world… or how can we bring out world peace… but tiny little aesthetic imperfections?

I can’t seem to turn it off.
I go over to a friends for dinner and as their poring out their hearts, I’m rearranging their furniture… in my mind.
At the grocery store I’m improving the kerning for type on a package… in my mind.

I saw this poster by Union Lane on Flickr and I think it summarized my thoughts pretty well. I guess the neurotic-problem-solving part of my brain makes me a designer.

Sleeping in design

If you ever find yourself in Ghent (Belgium) you should stay here.

It’s a guesthouse (or maybe we would call it a boutique hotel) that features young designer’s work where you can “see, feel, taste and love their work in a real-life context.” There’s both rooms a guest can stay in and studio space to rent.

If you do stay there, let me know how it goes. I’d love to add some actual reviews to this post.

Let's work together! Get in touch.
