When I trained in Visual Communications, or Graphic Design,
there were no computers (this gives my age away, yet it was
not that long ago!). Part of the joy of creating was to
craft something by hand; to let ideas flow onto the page
as inspiration and then to evolve them, allowing them to
take whatever form they wished, spontaneously. The outcome
is irrelevant in the initial stages – it is an organic
process of exploration that takes place when thoughts or
impulses are translated into pen or brush strokes.
My career as an Advertising Creative started ‘manually’ as
campaigns were shaped from ideas that passed ‘the overnight
test’ and all strategic criteria that called for them to
be not only unique but relevant – to bring results.
Having come full circle, exiting from the world of marketing
and communications brings new freedoms – there is no ‘reason’.
Getting back to the basics and picking up a pencil, it is
only a matter of allowing whatever wants to be expressed to
reveal itself, which can be surprising…
This page highlights part of this new adventure as projects
that come from the ether take tangible form – a creative
process where ‘the new’ is born.
