Description

This class explores one really fun and effective method of increasing the quality and quantity of your creations, boosting the number of ideas you come up with, and sharpening your mind to take on life’s challenges

Join the class to learn how to become a prolific creator, and take on the day with your brain in overdrive mode.

You don’t have to work in a ‘creative’ field to take the class, nor do you need to know how to draw.

The course is designed for you to watch one video a day, for 10 days. Each day you’ll learn more about the benefits of the doodling random words.

All you need is pen and paper, 15 minutes everyday, and the ability to have fun and try new things.

This is a project based class where you doodle 10 random words in 10 days and share!

The project is fun and simple: everyday you get a list of random words, you pick one, doodle what comes to mind in 10-15 minutes and then you share! The random words make it fun, and doodling something based on the word gets your brain into go-mode.

Here’s what we cover:

  •  We’ll go through a few different methods of doodling random words and talk about the numerous benefits of doing so.
  • Unleashing your inner child.
  • We cover the positives of routine and discipline in the creative process.
  • We learn to make mistakes again, and use them to our advantage.
  • We discuss the fear of failure and how to overcome it.
  • We talk about the blank canvas and how to get going.
  • We cover how the exercise can help you solve your daily problems.

I’m looking forward to seeing your creations – it’s gonna be a super fun process!

Included in the class is a free PDF copy of my book, which covers the content of the class in an easy to follow and written format – which is especially cool if you learn best by reading rather than by video.

Who is the target audience?
  • Take this course if you appreciate creativity and idea-generation, want to develop those qualities in yourself, and don’t have much time to consider how to do so.
  • Don’t take this course if you think you know it all, if you’re don’t believe in self-development, or you have no time at all.

Product Designer

Rich's title is Product Designer but he's more of a jack-of-all-trades / generalist / unicorn. He designs, animates and codes. He's studied multimedia design and graphic design, and is a self-taught programmer. He's freelanced, worked for agencies and startups, and now runs Studio Armstrong, an Amsterdam-based creation company, with his wife. He also doodles all the time, has super ginger-powers and can touch his nose with his tongue!

He spends most of his working day researching and experimenting, much like his hero, Lucius Fox, does. Rich likes to think he's a minimalist, but he's fooling himself – he's as messy and unorganised as the any other creative genius.

Rich has been teaching online classes since 2015 – and he likes it a lot :) He's since created the weirdly named Tap Tap Kaboom brand that showcases his experiments, designs and classes.
