Designers and artists do it all the time: sketching to hone ideas and generate new ones. They use drawing to support their thinking. Everybody can use that tool and fully use their visual brain to find different solutions to a problem or create something new. This is how:
- Map your thinking around the issue in simple drawings and some key words
- Have a ‘mental conversation’ with your visible thoughts
- Let yourself be surprised by unexpected connections and ideas that spring from ambiguities in the shapes you produced.
