Transcript of "Mindmapping for Ideation"

  1. 1. Mind Mapping Visual brain storming for creative clarity
  2. 2. What the heck is mind-mapping?  Mindmapping is a technique based upon the principle that free flowing radial thinking falls in line with the way our brains naturally follow thought and make connections  “A mind map is a diagram used to visually outline information. A mind map is often created around a single word or text, placed in the center, to which associated ideas, words and concepts are added. Major categories radiate from a central node, and lesser categories are sub-branches of larger branches.[1] Categories can represent words, ideas, tasks, or other items related to a central key word or idea.” 1 1.

  5. 5. Ways Mindmapping may allow for more creative brainstorming Traditional Outline Mind Map Linear Non-linear/ radial Text Contains text and images Difficult to make connections between separate headings and topics Allows for connections between multiple topics and headings
  6. 6. So what are the rules for mindmapping?
  7. 7. There are no rules! (but here are some suggestions)  Start with a central theme, this can be as general as Senior Project or as detailed as an ending for my film  Now, without pausing too long, write down several finer categories radially branching from your center:Film, Performance, Game or surprising, happy, tragic  Continue refining by radiating outwards as ideas come to you. Don’t edit. Some of the spurs or branches may continue for several “generations” while others might remain branchless  Doodling; you’re doodling ideas using text and imagery while not thinking about it too hard  Color can be fun; Play with letting the imagery become the main force behind your decisions
