How to Make Mistakes on Purpose
We Netflix and Insta! We Google + selfie! FB? Maybe. We NPR, HBO. No SUV. Not PC. We AIGA, ADC. We mad skills Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, AutoCad. When you get good at something, you repeat it. We can promise clients – perfect results guaranteed! Computers don’t make mistakes!
“What’s wrong with that?” Everything. Because shared tastes, technologies and skills equal no surprises. No Velcro, Post-its, penicillin. No Pringles! And if I can’t surprise myself, no wonder I’m boring YOU!
“Creativity” on demand?I hate the blank page. Starting with a burr, a blob, a ‘mistake” lets me ask, “What could this be?” instead of, “Where do I begin?”
So don’t focus on a problem to solve it. Do something easy, opposite, random. Not trying works better than trying. Sabotage digital convention. Bring Chaos to your Order and Reclaim your Human Brain. Make a Lulu of a Booboo! ERRARE HUMANUM EST!
