Of all the excellent points raised in episode 136 of the UX Podcast, with Denise Jacobs and Chris Noessel, the first half’s focus on creativity resonated most deeply with me. From her talk “Unfold your Brain,” self-described creativity evangelist Denise Jacobs explains how to banish your inner critic—or more so, how to make this nagging critic a team player, working with you instead of against you.
“Unfold your brain – Skyrocket your creative ability” was the title of Denise Jacobs’s highly interactive workshop at UXLx this spring. We talked to Denise about how to banish our inner critic and the mental blocks that get in the way of creative thinking. We also talked about how you can improve focus and get your brain into a state where you access creative ideas best.
