Visual and Creative Thinking
  What we learned from Peter Pan and Willy Wonka
                               Kelsey Ruger, Pop Labs
There is no life I know to compare with pure
imagination. Living there, you'll be free if
you truly wish to be.
                             Willy Wonka
creativity: cre·a·tiv·i·ty n. the ability to use
imagination to transcend traditional ideas, rules,
 patterns, relationships, or the like, and to create
     meaningful new ideas, forms, methods.
visual thinking: vis·u·al thin·king adj. the practice of
using pictures to solve problems, think through issues,
               and communicate clearly.
Life in the fast lane:
In an increasingly fast paced world
we don’t make time for creative activities.
Keeping up with the competition:
It’s getting harder to innovate, produce new
     ideas and communicate at this pace.
What About Creativity?
This can be overwhelming for many professionals
 because many of the “standard” we put in place
actually limit creative ability and competitiveness.
Wake-up latent childhood abilities
   As children our world is dominated
  by stories, pictures and imagination
Visual and creative thinking techniques can help
reawaken natural visual and creative skills in adults
nurturing creative and visual thinking in your organization

• Learning and removing the myths that prevent creativity
• Start using visual and creative thinking
First - You Don’t Have To Be An Artist
Visual thinking and creativity aren’t really about drawing.
Drawing isn’t what makes it a creative activity.
The Myths of Innovation
             Scott Burken - 2007
The Myths of Creativity
MYTH 1:
creativity always comes from an epiphany
MYTH 2:
there is always a clear path to creativity
MYTH 3:
creativity is the result of the lone innovator
MYTH 4:
creativity always results in greatness




          well great ideas anyway...
MYTH 5:
I’m not creative
MYTH 6:
being creative is a waste of time
MYTH 7:
creativity is not for adults or
people with serious careers.
A Beautiful Mind
Understanding Why These Myths Exist
Beliefs are powerful:
The beliefs we have about how the world works often
have very emotional origins. These emotions can
change how we make decisions, form habits and
develop skills.
our need for consistency is stronger than just about
any other intrinsic need we have. People will behave
 in a manner that is consistent with their previously
  existing self-concept, even when this behavior is
          unrewarding to them otherwise.
                                          Prescott Leaky
Do you have any sacred cows?
Sometimes an idea loses it’s meaning over time, but isn’t
abandoned because of the investment in it’s past. These
ideals are often so immune to criticism that those who
challenge them are ignored or marginalized.
How do you overcome the power of
the creative myths?

Are you smarter than a 5th grader?
The chief enemy of creativity is quot;goodquot; sense.”
                                    Pablo Picaso
The di erence between Peter and the boys at this time
was that he knew it was make-believe, while to them
make-believe and true were exactly the same thing.
Overcoming the Myths of Creativity
Visual Thinking:
Using images to solve problems and communicate
• 80% of the brain is dedicated to visual processing
• Visual processing is not new, it’s part of our history
• Written language originated from drawing and sketching
Tips for starting visual thinking

                              Text
                               Text




                                   From “Mapping Inner Space”
                                   by Nancy Margulies, Nusa Maal, and Margaret J. Wheatley
Visual Thinking Tip 4:
From “Mapping Inner Space”
