Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things. And the reason they were able to do that was that they’ve had more experiences or they have thought more about their experiences than other people. Unfortunately, that’s too rare a commodity. A lot of people in our industry haven’t had very diverse experiences. So they don’t have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one’s understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have

The Dream Team…

I don’t do a ton of testing anymore but given the right circumstance and team I’m totally game. Collaborating with creatives without the boundaries a client can put on you is a great way get your creative juices following again. Sometimes you need to recharge and a test can be a great way to do that. 

Remember when setting up a test to book people who are experts in their field. Since no one is getting paid everyone needs to have some creative control in their area. This is your chance to try something out you’ve been experimenting with and get feed back from a team of professionals you respect. 

Definition of a Test Shoot: When a model and photographer/team work together on a new idea or on their portfolios. No fees other than sharing film-and-developing expenses are involved. Model and Photographer Releases should be signed before the session.

Enjoy these behind the scene images from one of my favorite collaboration teams.

Photographer: Tania Quintanilla

Wardrobe: Me
