The AIGA Journal has documented a thought provoking conversation between designers Steve Portigal and Dan Soltzberg. They discuss the importance of “noticing” when going through your day. It’s a form of gathering inspiration from everywhere to fuel creative work. The key is getting out of the everyday way of thinking and seeing things with new eyes.

They advocate a kind of “waking up”, where you stay conscious and aware of the surroundings you’re moving through – rather than being stuck in you own head and biased world view.
