A crash course on Creativity Stanford College 2nd Assignment Irene Pateraki
A place should make you feel comfortable from the entrance,and I think a fountain, water in general, brings nice feelings…
Going inside a mall, sometimes you feel anxious, where to go,what to see…an open place with good lighting and plants insidemakes you feel more comfortably…
One of the shopsI ‘m a goodcustomerAs I have noticed, I likestores with clothes whereclothes are separatedaccording to colors as well ascasual and for specialoccasions clothes! It’s easierfor me like that to find whatI’m looking for….Nice shoes….
What am I lookingfor?I also like the shops where Ican look whatever I want andask for help when I want!Don’t you also like howclothes are on shelves ? Andlight on the shop?
And proposals….So if you want to buy a blackcostume, here they give you thechance to accompany it with theright shoes, bag and shirt!Everything easy, don’t need tospend lots of time lookingaround…
A store for thehouse…thatwelcomes you!I really found out that anopen door really invites youto the store…I feel morereluctant to enter a store byopening a door…And the light here great aswell! To allow you see everysingle detail of the objects!As for objects…not many…putin a right order…help you findwhat you are looking for!
Red:a color that in market means something good for buyers! Eithersales or reduction in prices! So here 20% off and shoes at a great displaywait for you to choose the right ones!
Here color plays an important role! Everything is separatedaccording to color…positive attitude, lots of colors, make you feelso happy and you want to buy them all in all colors!
More colors….A typical super market with so niceand fresh fruits…. The sales personput some fresh fruit behind me andI don’t know what to choose…The display is nice…maybe if it wasme..I would make a better canvascombining the colors andshapes…I’m creative, don’t youbelieve me????
Salami area SOSIt’s salami area…but I find itconfusing…I prefer fruits areato tell you the truth…Some are in display in frontsome in a fridge behind andnobody is there to helpme…maybe I will go back tofruits…
Service…Ok it’s not the most creativework but a good smile or ashort chat makes you feelwelcomed, even when youexit the store….She was bored…
Easy and SmartI had never seen before that Icould order by myself abook? Can you imagine? Ishould observe better nexttime!!!
Books displayed in categories, easy to search and if you need helppeople in orange can help!
Who says that a security man is there only for security reasons? Asmiley man welcomes the people and give directions! Greatsurprise and really a plus for the store!
Why am I avoidingit?Today I understood why Iavoid this store…It’sdark..very dark inside, nogood lighting, dark floor andsales person dressed onblack…I suppose I’m not thatkind of person!
Can you feel like being close to the sea in a department store? Yes, if you have acoffee in a coffee shop with an aquarium in front…so relaxing to have a drink,talk to your friends and watch the fish swimming…really refreshing idea!
No happy people…Waiting in a line to ask for aservice?No way, the man in whitejacket was looking reallyfurious… going up and downbut what to expect from onlyone sales person?
No doors at all! You are all invited! Shoes in front, clothes behind!Modern look, really interesting approach…many nice things that Iwould like to buy!!!!
Isn’t it wonderful? A toy store but it’s for old and young children!Haven’t you noticed the two doors in the entrance, one small for kidsand one bigger for parents! As for the colors inside…blue makes medream….
Don’t you feel confused to find what you are looking for? Whereare the boots, the high-heels or the flat shoes? Couldn’t they putthem in a better order?
And as it’s time to leave the mall, there is a great flower shop in theentrance, so many colors and a really attentive sales woman…don’tneed to mention the great smell of the flowers…the smell is still in mynose!
And somethingdifferent….A woman selling jewelry andgoldfish outside the mall…Idon’t think that these twojobs can be combined…buthere it is where creativitycomes!
Conclusion?Yes the truth is that we neverreally observe what wesee…we should spend somemore time on observationthough…“The stars up close to themoon were pale; they gotbrighter and braver thefarther they got out of thecircle of light ruled by thegiant moon”― Ken Kesey, One Flew Overthe Cuckoos Nest
