Mindblown with Rich Kirkpatrick
MINDBLOWN: Unlock Your Creative Genius by Bridging Science and Magic.
Simply put, creativity is what makes us human. What if creativity isn’t voodoo but a definable process to learn and follow? The author pulls from researchers, creatives, and experience. The premise is this. Everyone is wired to create. And as we uncover and apply the process, we might actually become better people along the way!
You'll be introduced to the author's three-step creative process, The Dream, The Sandbox, and The Story, where you learn to discover, develop, and deliver your creation to the world. There's a magic to science and a science to magic. Bridging these different ways of thinking is the key. MINDBLOWN shares lessons from brain scientists and creative practitioners to give you the key to your innate design as a creator.
