What I do is shutting down my computer and do everything but not working. Most of my ideas came during a shower or while I was asleep. :)

Here’s a few thing that help me:

Pray
Sleep on it
Take a look at some of my best designs to remind myself that I can crack this one
Do something unrelated (yes, like vacuum… or bake)
Work on another project

I think that playing games or instruments is a great solution…sometime you just need a bit of patience and maybe a short break to refresh your mind!

+1 agree … always works to involve with something else creative, then back to work .. also looking at preview videos of top selling ae projects here is good for inspiration

Obviously take a break from the computer. Strangely all my ideas come to me when I’m about to go to sleep at night?

What do you do when… you have designers block?

If I get designer’s block, I get mad, pace around, then think of how I can spend my time. It usually happens after I’ve just designed something… or after I slept more than 12 hours in a day.

I usually rest a bit and ask for other people’s comments and suggestions. It’ll always be better the next day.
