CREATING AWESOME

AN EXAMINATION OF THE CREATIVE MIND by ANDREW HALL

Creating Awesome is inspired by Creative Courage, a workshop by Alex Raffi. Also by George Land’s Creativity Test as a measure of creative ability.

In this series of interviews and articles I collaborate with writers, artists, entrepreneurs and other creative personalities. Through insights and anecdotes, they share their personal journeys and struggles.

The purpose is to shed light on who they are and how they do what they do.

Additionally, I hope to explore what these individuals are doing to remain relevant in their fields and stay ahead of their competition. Ultimately, my goal is to understand more about the creative mind and learn what makes people creative.
