Here’s one simple technique for coming up with ideas. I’ve tried this myself and it works. Only three simple steps to follow:
Step 1 – Important Words
Try and think of the most important words related to your project … usually 2 to 4 words.
Step 2 – Word Association
Next, for each of these 3 words .. think of other things associated with them …
Step 3 – “make a song”
Now that you have your “notes” think of ways you can rearrange them to convey meaning. Pick a word from each column and see if you can create an interesting idea. There are a number of ways to do this … change their size, their physical relationship to one another, their properties/material (metal=strong, ice=cold), etc.
