Every creative person out there would know what I’m talking about. A creative block is probably one of the worst situations faced by artists. Whether it is musicians, writers or designers, all are apprehensive of going through a block. It can leave those with designers block in a worrisome state of mind and hinder any effort that is needed for a project at hand. Please tell me what you do to get over this!

my head is hurting trying to think of things to do that aint on here already…...

I had the same last night, and it was already 3am so decided to call it a night. Hit the gym this morning before sitting down again and managed to smash through the block :)

I always find that if I get away from the screen, and give my mind a chance to “breath” that I’m always coming up with ideas and styles in my head that give me that energy to get past it.

Hope that helps in any way :)

I get that too – only rarely.

Reason why is because I have a list of about 30 Products that I want to create for the MPs but I just don’t have the time, or there’s always something sales getting in the way.

I just try to think of ideas along the way, add them to my phones notes and hope I can find the time to get to them eventually.

See something you like? think of how you can make it better – write down your better idea, move on. When there’s time create it.

That’s where sometimes I just get switched attention and want to work on something else.

Thinking about an item is creative – actually doing it is time consuming.

Guess I just need more time, but don’t have it.

I used to get blocks a lot.. dunno what changed. Maybe the Army changed my mentality? I think the biggest issue now is designing for so long I feel like I lose my sense of what’s even good haha.

Do I Get Or Have a Designers Block? Sure! All the time. Usually I just wait until it vanishes. :bigsmile:

I just stumbled across this video 29 Ways to Stay Creative. It might be helpful.
