Thanks Nancy.

film and music

Interesting that those thoughts would come up. I wrote a piece a few years back in this similar style, although quite a bit longer, that ended up being used for a performance. Dancers, a reader and an illustrator with a projector creating scenes as a backdrop for the dancers. I didn't see it, but supposedly it was great.

Bryony’s comment is:

how do you deal with intuition?

how do you approach it?

how do you sell it?

how do you become and allow yourself to be intuitive?

Lyndi ’s comment is:

intuition to me is really a scary thing and at the same time a beautiful moment...i can either completely trust myself and go with the gut feeling...the little thing in my head telling me to

do something a certain way. how can we tell the difference between intution and rationalization?

Doug Bartow’s comment is:

Check out BLINK by Malcolm Gladwell. A great read into why sometimes intuition (or immediate first impression) is better than rationalization.

Steve Mock’s comment is:

Always been an advocate of—thought this craft was about—impressions. Nobody spends as much time thinking or talking or writing about this stuff (graphic design, commercial art, et cetera) as we do.

Try to live in that first split second thrill of when things impress, or dawn, or aha. That's what everyone will feel. The impact.

Move. Act. Make something. Then do it again.

design is the light of my life’s comment is:

steve, i agree that "we" spend a lot of time thinking about these kind of things, but if you really want to see consciousness stream, you should check out the book debbie is referring to.

(but i guess i should keep in mind that Leo was an adman.)

Interesting how sometimes just 'knowing' gets you where you need to be. Great write-up Bryony.

Bryony’s comment is:

What I find to be very interesting as I move along the “corporate ladder”, is that clients respond more and m ore to the intuition/gut feeling I might experience and need fewer reasons and justifications. And, as a relationship grows, the easier it gets. Why? I guess it has to do with trust, and the fact that I no longer need to always hide the fact that I selected one image over another because it just “is better”.

But when you telll a new client, it just feels right, somehow it does not fair so nicely.
