Designing Joyful Brainstorming Experiences 🎥

Dear Reader,

Last night, Rachel Davis ran a workshop on "joyful brainstorming" with 60+ workshoppers from the Guild.

Rachel facilitated the event in Butter (which we also use for class at the Fountain Institute), and it's the perfect tool for learning better brainstorms.

Here are some of my takeaways:

  • Brainstorms are about shaping ideas, not just generating them
  • Warm-ups like the "Sunset Activity" help set the mood for creativity
  • Frameworks like Rachel's P.L.A.Y. are a great way to remix ideas

Watch the recording and re-experience joyful brainstorms below:

Also...don't miss Rachel's in-depth recap in Notion which includes all of the resources from her workshop like Miro templates and advanced learning materials on brainstorming. Thanks for sharing, Rachel! 💞
