…to stay creative

We all have those horrible times when we suffer from creative block and feel far far away from inspiration. Fear no more. Watching this fantastic fun motion graphics video by To-Fu proves that there are really only a few simple things to remember that help you keep your creatives juices flowing.

So… with this in mind… I’m off to have fun, away from the computer, surround myself with creative people, and drink coffee!
