#booknotes : Creative Strategy and the Business of Design

In part 25, we learn how to take all the skills we have learned in the past 24 parts, and head out into the world to get shit done.  The key takeaway for me was learning how to change your mindset from right and wrong to what is and isn’t viable.  In creative business, there’s no one right answer to any problem.  The most important thing is that your solution is based on true insights...

Creative Strategy and the Business of Design: Part 25

For those of you who have been following my Instagram feed know that every week for the past 25 weeks, I’ve been posting my booknotes on Douglas Davis’ brilliant book, Creative Strategy and the Business of Design. Reading time: 16 mins

We find out Douglas's two cents on how to further your career:  1. Think about the words behind the pictures. 2. Exhibit the ability to develop sound strategy from research. 3. Development of relevant written conceptual execution created from strategy. 4. Admit when you don't know - ask for help.  Ever since I have read this, I’ve been thinking about how I can level-up my own career...

Here are seven career tips by Ron Berger, in his contributing chapter in this book.   Hopefully they will help you as they have me.   As Douglas says in this book: "There will always be someone who works cheaper and knows Photoshop better, so to stay relevant you must become strategic"

It can be exhausting to interpreting the feedback you get on your creative work.   Vague feedback can lead to scope creep, endless revisions, or worst of all, starting the project from scratch.   By keeping your feedback framed in an objective way, you can provide the right solution to the right problem - a problem that your target consumers need to be solved...

For those of you who have been following my Instagram feed know that every week for the past 25 weeks, I’ve been posting my booknotes on Douglas Davis’ brilliant book, Creative Strategy and the Business of Design. Reading time: 16 mins

I don’t know about you, but I genuinely find it interesting to work across both business and creative barriers.    As Douglas says, "gone are the days of creativity for creativity's sake" - and I definitely agree!  Ideas only have true value in business when they have measurable outcomes which provide a solution to a business problem.  As I mentioned earlier, metrics are everything...

For those of you who have been following my Instagram feed know that every week for the past 25 weeks, I’ve been posting my booknotes on Douglas Davis’ brilliant book, Creative Strategy and the Business of Design. Reading time: 16 mins

Over the previous 19 spreads, we’ve been through all the various elements of the a creative project.   Now it's time to put it all together and talk about your ideas in the best possible way, to ensure your concept is the one that gets used.   It’s time to talk about pitching and presenting...

I bet your answer is not to question the target audience in the brief, right?  I hate to tell you this, but you’re wrong.  A deep understanding of the target audience will help your brand to stand out, or differentiate, in the market.   It also allows your teams to better internalise the target audience: the way they talk, walk and think.  Having this deep understanding helps them to deliver better solutions for your target audience...

For those of you who have been following my Instagram feed know that every week for the past 25 weeks, I’ve been posting my booknotes on Douglas Davis’ brilliant book, Creative Strategy and the Business of Design. Reading time: 16 mins

We all love a good story, but few of us see it as a tool for successful branding.   It can be a highly effective tool to take a complex brand system and distill it down into a story full of villains and heroes.  Using storytelling tools helps you align strategy and creative teams enabling them to work together towards that happy ending at the end of those classic stories we all know and love...

Now we’ve established the importance of a brief within a creative project, Douglas explores the elements of a good creative brief.  This spread of nudenotes shows the first eight of eleven questions that every creative brief should answer.   As mentioned in the book:   "The brief is where the specifics of the previous chapters come together. When sitting down to write a brief, you'll need a clearly defined goal or goals, a narrowly defined target, and some insight into what the target wants"

Creative Strategy and the Business of Design: Part 16

For those of you who have been following my Instagram feed know that every week for the past 25 weeks, I’ve been posting my booknotes on Douglas Davis’ brilliant book, Creative Strategy and the Business of Design. Reading time: 16 mins

I’ve set myself the task, after reading Creative Strategy and the Business of Design, to think more strategic and less tactical about my daily work.   Now, I’m always striving for clarity on the real problem that needs solving.   The way to achieve this is by asking the right questions.  More and more, I find that it’s not just about making things pretty - there is almost always a deep insight waiting to be discovered...

For those of you who have been following my Instagram feed know that every week for the past 25 weeks, I’ve been posting my booknotes on Douglas Davis’ brilliant book, Creative Strategy and the Business of Design. Reading time: 16 mins

It’s time to take everything we have learned in the previous nudenotes about features, benefits and values.   Distil all this information into crafting amazing positioning statement by using the widely used and time tested framework:  “For [target], [brand] is the [category] that is the [point of difference] so they can [end benefit] because [reason to believe].”

For those of you who have been following my Instagram feed know that every week for the past 25 weeks, I’ve been posting my booknotes on Douglas Davis’ brilliant book, Creative Strategy and the Business of Design. Reading time: 16 mins

It’s hard to start any creative project without a sound positioning statement.  It focuses creative development, empowering you to spend time get it right early on in your project.  This is how you take you creativity beyond “make it pretty”, rooting your ideas in strong insights tailored to your target consumers behaviour to ensure it is relevant so your ideas get the response your ideas deserve...

For those of you who have been following my Instagram feed know that every week for the past 25 weeks, I’ve been posting my booknotes on Douglas Davis’ brilliant book, Creative Strategy and the Business of Design. Reading time: 16 mins

This spread of notes explores the details of the Creative Strategy Framework and how it allows you to play detective, organising and extracting insights.   It helps you to fill in the missing parts, remove all the irrelevant stuff and reduce information overload.  As Douglas says: "[it] helps begin the process of developing relevant solutions that are on brand, on strategy, and on message."

For those of you who have been following my Instagram feed know that every week for the past 25 weeks, I’ve been posting my booknotes on Douglas Davis’ brilliant book, Creative Strategy and the Business of Design. Reading time: 16 mins

These nudenotes offer ways to organise your data to fill your own Creative Strategy Framework to provide clarity, increase inspiration and reduce risk.   This then enables you to take creative, calculated risks whilst keeping on strategy.  I’m particularly pleased that I managed to get in a geeky reference to Star Wars in this one:  Become a Design Jedi: Order leads to clarity.  Clarity leads to inspiration.  Inspiration leads to solutions.

For those of you who have been following my Instagram feed know that every week for the past 25 weeks, I’ve been posting my booknotes on Douglas Davis’ brilliant book, Creative Strategy and the Business of Design. Reading time: 16 mins

The start of a creative project can seem very chaotic - insights, facts and research flying all over the place.   It can be overwhelming, leaving you feeling disorganised, inefficient, panicked and tense.  This also features the introduction of the Creative Strategy Framework it can be used to organise your all your information and enable you to pull out strategic threads to inspire new concepts...

Creative Strategy and the Business of Design: Part 10

For those of you who have been following my Instagram feed know that every week for the past 25 weeks, I’ve been posting my booknotes on Douglas Davis’ brilliant book, Creative Strategy and the Business of Design. Reading time: 16 mins

I think that this is one of the most overlooked concepts in delivering effective creative business solutions.   It was great to see a whole section of this book dedicated to this.  By developing deep understanding of features, benefits and values,  you can develop an effective positioning strategy for your brand or business.   This ensures that your solutions resonate with your consumers, and provides differentiation from the competition, so you can stand out from the crowd.

For those of you who have been following my Instagram feed know that every week for the past 25 weeks, I’ve been posting my booknotes on Douglas Davis’ brilliant book, Creative Strategy and the Business of Design. Reading time: 16 mins

How to get a greater understanding of connections between brand and targets.   The first and biggest step is to understand that you are not the target!  Stop creating solutions for yourself, and fully immerse yourself in learning who the target audience is.  This will help you reach your audience on a deeper level to deliver better business and brand solutions that resonate with your target consumers.  Relevance = response.

For those of you who have been following my Instagram feed know that every week for the past 25 weeks, I’ve been posting my booknotes on Douglas Davis’ brilliant book, Creative Strategy and the Business of Design. Reading time: 16 mins

This set of nudenotes tackles importance of being fluent in the language spoken in the room, to ensure clarity of communication, so everyone remains focused on the same goal.  Until reading this book, I never really gave much thought to how the language you use to communicate your ideas can effect the way your ideas are received...

For those of you who have been following my Instagram feed know that every week for the past 25 weeks, I’ve been posting my booknotes on Douglas Davis’ brilliant book, Creative Strategy and the Business of Design. Reading time: 16 mins

As the ancient design proverb says: 'Those who have not done the research have nothing to design'  Okay, maybe I made that up… but it is true!  To create an effective design or business solution, it has to be based on a strong foundation of research holding up a sound strategic plan.   Now we know the language of business (from the nudenotes above), we’ve equipped with a new perspective and the ability to justify your recommendations...

Now we have some language to work with, it’s time to ‘emerge from the cocoon’ and turn these words into inspiration.

Today's #nudenotes 'How To: Achieve Design Clarity: LISTEN' written by @matthewencina from @thefuturishere on @medium .  Too many knowledge bombs to count in this #sketchnote . Using questions to gain clarity, get closer to a solution.  Decoding coded language is such an interesting cross roads between psychology and design. Can not wait to learn more and put it into practice. Hopefully these notes will start me on a journey to become a master design code breaker! 🤓

Another Sunday morning filled with tea and #nudenotes . Learning new things from @matthewencina and @thefuturishere '3 Things To Do Before You Design Anything'.  I love learning anything that will make my design process more efficient. I know these 3 things will help me waste less time and be more focused in my own design work.  I can't wait to use them. Bring on the next project!

Today's #nudenotes are based again on content from @thefuturishere and @thechrisdo , 'How To Tell A Great Story - 5 Storytelling Tips'.  Loved concept of Kindra Hall's 3 part story structure: the normal, the explosion and the new normal. I look forward to working this into my daily work process, especially during presentations. Plus all the nerdy movie references in this video!
