Where did you go?

Have all the good ideas been taken?

Well, like history a lot of ideas have been repeated in advertising.  Some are copied, some similar, and some just have a newer twist.  But you have to admit…while brainstorming for ideas, as different as you really think they are, majority of the ideas have been done before at some point in time. Don’t feel alone, everyone is guilty of not having complete original ideas.  So how do you come up with original ideas? What a great question?  And who has the answer to this?

One should take those great ideas and some how mold  and make them your own. I know that things start to sound like something else to some degree, but take those ideas and create a new twist.  Here are some methods I take to be more original:

  • Come up with your own world and how you could do things there.  What would your rules and regulations be?
  • Listen to music
  • Sit outside
  • Write down all ideas for 2 minutes
  • Write down some objects that remind me of the subject (15)
  • Go through the dictionary
  • Try to stay off the net
  • Draw ideas
  • Close my eyes and relax

So here are some methods of mine…What are yours?
