If you are a creative who's curious and loves expanding your design horizons, you will probably really dig this podcast. Unless podcasts aren't your thing, but then you should give it a try, anyway.
Debbie Millman has been creating her Design Matters podcast for 12 years, and her experience as an interviewer helps make this one of the best podcasts there is on the subject of creativity and design. There are 281 episodes available on the website (216 in iTunes). Debbie interviews top-shelf names in the large design world, plenty of recognizable names like Clement Mok or Jonathan Adler, but chances are that most of them are people you probably never heard of before, who are doing really interesting and creative things. It's also refreshing to hear a podcast with just as many talented women interviewed as men.
Since I just found yet another great resource to tweet about thanks to Todd Henry and The Accidental Creative podcast, I figured I need to give a shoutout and spread the word about this show that I recently just discovered even though it's been around since 2011. Todd talks to incredibly interesting people about creative-related things in most of the shows, and he's got great insights himself. I've found it to be a pretty inspirational podcast to listen to, and have gotten insights from every episode I've listened to. I never have enough time to listen to all the podcasts in my feed, but this one is worth making time for. Todd Henry writes books and speaks on creativity and creative-type stuff, and leads workshops with creative teams. If podcasts aren't your thing, he also has a few books to help you be more - you guessed it - creative.
If you have ideas, you like doing things with ideas, or you want to generate more ideas... You should read this book. Scott Berkun is a 'Maker' thinker... which makes this book feel tangibly helpful. Thinking is great, but making, that's where we find our magic. Yet it sometimes feels harder than it should be, this maker-thinker tight-rope that we balance on.
It's a fun read, 'guaranteed' cliché-free, and will give you ideas to improvise, be a genius, and stay motivated. BOOM!
