Creative doesn’t always mean new and unique

For anyone who thinks creativity is synonymous with originality I highly recommend you watch all 3 videos in this series. In them Kirby Ferguson shows how many aspects of our popular culture from music to films and books are often taken directly from earlier work.

Definitions of creativity often emphasize the word ‘original’ and I think this can hold people back from trying as the feeling that ‘it’s all been done before’ or ‘someone is already doing it better’ can be very strong (this happens to me all the time!)

So watch these, have the scales fall from you eyes and GO FOR IT!
