We are surrounded by objects, shapes, colors, texture, all bombarding our senses, from a walk through nature, a museum, or high street. THE BIG QUESTION what do we see? Do we take time to dwell and let ideas marinate, or is our creative mind on microwave mod? As the deadline for NAHA draws closer I know many of you are digging deep into your creativity.This collection below for me is world class – by the Douglas J team (see below as I share more insights).
Expand your creativity – Ok so the plan take your self on an artists date, slow down and look for ideas, then ask your self when inspired; how do I take this idea translate, or interpret the idea into a design? For me, It must have relevance and beauty. The second part in my experience is more tricky to develop. For example any one can put a tree hairstyle on the head, but an interpretation of branches and leaves is totally different to the point that you do not see the origin of the inspiration. Ok stay with me, let's move on.
I have had the honor and pleasure of working with the Douglas J team for many years, the company has a passion for education and pushing themselves to the next level. Their creative leaders Scott Weaver and TJ Weaver are true visionaries following in their father's foot step Doug Weaver. I have been blessed to share my knowledge through live work shops and HairDesignerTV.com with their company.
Again Douglas J is trailblazing, they have now introduced HairDresserTV.com (that I designed for Schools) into their 5 Aveda Institute locations. These students are going to have advantages that many never had at school! WOW!
I would like to share the Douglas J team's work with you as I am so proud of their achievements, I was fortune to Art Direct this collection which is world class. Bravo to the Douglas J team, you light my world.
The inspiration 'The Northern Lights' showcases how to take this amazing natural phenomenon of nature and translate into a collection and make it look expensive. The is where a photo is worth a 1,000 words. A breathtaking collection.
Check out this video it will give you great insight to the creative journey.
