What can I do to get my creative juices flowing? We ask ourselves this question several times a day, especially when there’s pressure to create. How to keep our creativity afloat can get philosophical, but, in reality, the solution is simple: find references!

Sourcing references means connecting with new ideas, concepts, projects, professionals, techniques, and expressions. Mixing everything together is sure to result in something unique, vibrant, and creative.
