  • Hi, I am teaching a research methods class on Tuesday, would love to be able to show your presentation--just a couple of slides where you talk about the phenomenological research you did, as that is what I am teaching--different methods and wanting to give them real world examples.

    99. 99. They call this “data collection.” Help us, please? You take that brain to work with you every day. You know better than anyone else how it works. As difficult as the journey can be, you’ve grown to understand more and more about how you’ll get to that elusive G R E A T I D E A . Your creative process is yours alone A N D I T M E A N S S O M E T H I N G . It has a life, a direction, a feel, a style. So, we’re wondering...

How do you get to the idea? What if you were asked to I L L U S T R A T E the process? Could you capture it V I S U A L LY — at a level of detail that reveals your own experience to others? We study the creative process as it applies to advertising. We’ve taught hundreds of young art directors and writers, and we know each person thinks about and develops ideas differently. Those differences are staggering — and unbelievably interesting! We’re inviting some of the industry’s best and brightest, including yourself, to show us their brains. This is stuff we’d like to capture for posterity. For research and building theory. For informing the next generation. For a beautiful book that will showcase great minds and how they work. We’re providing you with the necessary tools. Use the Sharpie® and the Process Canvas (both enclosed) to share your unique journey. Please follow the instructions on the back of that poster-sized sheet before providing us your solution, and return it to us in the postage-paid envelope. Think about the thinking, then show it to us. W. G L E N N G R I F F I N DEBORAH K. MORRISON ASSISTANT PROFESSOR PROFESSOR SOUTHERN METHODIST UNIVERSITY UNIVERSITY OF OREGON
    100. 100. I N S T R U C T I O N S 1. Think about your own creative process. Think about the route you take to find ideas. 2. Experiment with illustrating that process on a scratch piece of paper. Can your visualization (with or without words) offer someone else an understanding of the process as you experience it? 3. When you are satisfied with your solution, use the Sharpie® marker (provided) to transfer it to the Process Canvas on the reverse of this sheet. 4. This is research, folks. You know how this works. We need you to sign the Consent to Participate (in ink, not Sharpie®)
