Philippa is a massively successful Instagramer at @5ftinf and yet she is only too aware how these little two dimensional squares can limit our experiences and restrict our creativity, so it’s not without a little irony that she’s written a book to encourage people to step away from their screens and connect more with the 3D world. It’s a fascinating subject and I wholeheartedly recommend the book for anyone who’s working in the creative industry or is curious about the world around them.”–Sophie Robinson (DIY SOS, The Great British Interior Design Challenge, This Morning) Unlock your creative potential with Conscious Creativity: a practical, playful guide bursting with inspiration to help bring more colour into to your life.

Whether you’ve lost your mojo or just need some fresh ideas, artist and photographer Philippa Stanton’s lively guide will stimulate your imagination and reinvigorate your creative life. Engage your curiosity and connect your observations to your creative practice with activities such as: Noticing all the hues of one colour you can see around you Creating an abstract textured image using herbs, spices and other dry ingredients from your kitchen cupboards Collecting shadows: photograph hidden shapes and dark spaces that you haven’t noticed before Conscious Creativity will help you open your senses to the beauty you may not notice every day, and show you how to capture it. Simple, engaging exercises that encourage observation and experimentation will give you an insight into your own aesthetics as you take a conscious step to note the colours, shapes, shadows, sounds and textures that fill your world, and how they make you feel.

It's a little about the creative process and a lot about the craft of writing headlines, with over two hundred example ads. If you're looking for "killer headline formulas that can't fail," "data-driven headline conversion hacks," "SEO secrets (Google doesn't want you to know)," or "can't-miss clickbait headlines," you can find everything you need in a search bar. If you want to learn how to come up with a crap ton of ideas and turn them into headlines that bring personality to your writing, click add to cart. Oh, and as much as the title of this book, A Self-Help Guide for Copywriters, was meant to be a little tongue-in-cheek, it's the only book on creativity in advertising that takes on the subject of creative self-doubt. It will help you whack-a-mole self-doubting thoughts before they can even get a word in. Note: This is also a great resource for people who dislike copywriters. Read this book and soon you'll be able to casually point out flaws in their work, making the fragile copywriter in your life feel even more insecure.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Creative confidence is about designing and living an extraordinary life. Does this sound interesting and worth pursuing? We were inspired by creative confidence by brothers Tom and David Kelley and the experience of fulfillment from exercising our own creativity. Everyone has a huge reservoir of creativity within them. The question is whether or not you're tapping into the reservoir and getting into action. Many people have yet to discover their creative talents and therefore can't begin to tap into them. Our intention is to provide resources and inspiration to help you find your creative talent so you can start expressing it with confidence. In the same way that companies engage in oil and gas exploration we want you to engage in a creative exploration. Exploration and discovery is not enough however, as you need to develop your confidence to bring forth creativity and manifest it through art, books, professional career or the reinvention of your life. Creativity is like the engine for being fulfilled so you don't wake up 25 years later wondering where your life went or why you're not fulfilled. Your confidence is like the fuel to keep the creative engine going. The combination of your creativity, the pure potentiality of everything that's unique inside of you and confidence, the ability to actually express that pure potentiality, is the recipe for success in every area of your life. Expression of creativity is the highest fulfillment of the human spirit. If you labeled yourself as a non-creative type, then it's time to shatter that paradigm. If you see yourself as highly creative expressing yourself through writing, woodworking, painting or any other medium, then this book will affirm your creative pursuits and inspire you to go to the next level. Start your journey and share some of your success stories. We want people to find their creative confidence to share their stories and inspire others along the way.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Creative confidence sounds like some type of a fancy term for something but in reality, it is a reference to the level of confidence that a person has when it comes to their own creativity. For example, if you have a lot of confidence when it comes to your creative abilities, then you have a lot of creative confidence. On the other hand, if you are someone that believes that you have no artistic ability, no musical ability and no ability to think outside the box, then your creative confidence is probably very low. Just as you would do with virtually anything else, the level of creative confidence that you have in your abilities is directly tied to your ability to achieve the things that you want to achieve. Most of the time, you are able to do exactly what you think you can do. Therefore, if you believe that you can do anything when it comes to being creative, then you probably can. By the same token, if you believe that you have virtually no creative ability, you will probably experience a perceived lack of creativity because you are beating yourself before you even make an attempt at doing something creative. This often leads to a self-fulfilling prophecy. To reiterate that point, if you believe you can do something, you can likely do it. If you believe that you cannot do something, you will probably quit before you ever find success.

After more than ten years of smuggling creativity into the business sector without getting busted, Katan is here to tell you that any task or pursuit can be a creative one. You just need to be willing to defy conformity and be ready to conjure imagination anywhere, at any time. If you're feeling stuck in a dullsville job, a windowless cubicle, or an ill-fitting polyester work shirt, chin up! Katan has been there, too, and she's lived to tell the story. How? By choosing to stand out rather than fit in, to find her light, and to bask in it with all of her quirks and flaws. “The moment you choose to let the world see the real you—messy, imperfect, warts and all,” she says, “is the moment you choose to shine too.” Whether you're an entrepreneur seeking new ways to innovate, a newbie trying to spice up routine entry-level work, a free spirit with a rich creative life outside the office looking to bring more of that magic into your job, or just someone who occasionally feels the urge to scream “Why does it say paper jam when there is no paper jam?!!,” Katan will show you how to transform monotony into novelty and become more energized in your work and in the world. Peppered with stories of her own shenanigans—from organizing a wrestling match in the middle of an art museum to staging a corporate culture intervention via post-its—and lessons from the rule-breaking exploits of artists, change-makers, and totally legit business leaders alike, this book is a rollicking, uninhibited guide to using creativity as fuel for a freer and more joyful life.
