Inspiration Tool

Sometimes I get stuck on what to do with a work or personal project. I always looking for interesting ways to jump start my ideas; and today, my creative director showed me one. The Directors Bureau Idea Generator is a great starting point. In one quick click, it generates three random words for you to work from and from there, you free associate to come up with an idea from that point.

Stephan Sagmeister said in a graduate class of mine that picking one, two or three random words was one of the ways he jump started his brainstorming process. So make it easier and have The Directors Bureau Idea Generator choose the words and you just need to think about them.
