Having a creative mind is essential if you want to be a successful developer or a designer. Without creativity you will struggle to come up with project ideas. I have put together a list of 20 activities that help me come up with ideas for projects and inspiration. Some might be considered a distraction however you can get an idea at any moment. Visual and audio feedback is highly energising as it makes you think more. What activities do you think are great for creativity?
1. Watching Movies
It is damn near impossible to not experience some sort of creativity when watching a movie. If you are a huge fan of super hero movies like Marvel and DC then you will understand what I am talking about. Nonetheless you can feel inspired by anything you watch from a drama to a romance novel. For example lets use Iron Man as a reference. The colour tones for his suits would make for a cool website colour theme. And the cool interfaces he uses could be incorporated into an app of some sort.
