What is missing from your design?

Are you full of bright ideas on design, only to be shot down by your colleagues?

Well write down your good ideas, then write the opposite meaning to them, suppose you are working on a new project, write a list of negative thoughts you have about the project, make a list of the positive meaning to each word, Amazingly great ideas come to you,

Sometimes we get bogged down by too much input from work, pressure, deadlines.

I work in Digital Media Design, We are always dramatically looking for new ideas on design. Design has a lot of different meanings to all walks of life, when we look at our age group the concept can look very different to our colleagues, so when we think about changing your company’s design brand or product image, because we feel that it is out of date. Well the fundamentals of design have not changed, but the design trends can give us an opportunity to try new idea’s

So you could try this, It may be ridiculous, but it works


You may have to write a new blog, try using humor to get your message across Set up the story briefly, dramatically, Make it short. Long-winded stories are boring,

Laughter is a powerful antidote to stress, pain, and conflict. Nothing works faster or more dependably to bring your mind and body back into balance than a good laugh. Humor lightens your burdens, inspires hopes, connects you to others, and keeps you grounded, focused, and alert.

Make it dramatic… The product sold very well, Uninteresting

The product disappeared off the shelves, Better

Deliver some humor.

Your parents want to teach you to appreciate boring touristy sightseeing things that you’ll enjoy way less than continuing to be at home playing video games. You want to do cool fun kid things (like maybe playing different video games than the ones you have at home). Your siblings want to annoy you literally to death in the backseat of the car. No one gets what they want. But at least you get to write an essay about it when you get back to school.

When I told my client about the amazing purity of ‘e-boiled water’, he asked me…

“ Can I download it from the internet?”

Your bra size looks like it’s the same as my favorite computer language, C++. Your sense of humor is one of the most powerful tools you have to make certain that your daily mood and emotional state support good health.”

Exaggeration/ Understatement


Understatement is a figure of speech in which there is a contrast between the description and reality. As such, understatement can be used to reflect modesty, sarcasm, derogatory or complimentary tone. Understatement literally refers to what is not being said. In short, the gravity of the statement is undervalued. Consider this example. In David Edding’s ‘The Tamuli’, Emperor Sarabian refers to a hurricane as “a light breeze”.

Joke/ Story

The child and his mother:

A curious child asked his mother: “Mommy, why are some of your hairs turning grey?”

The mother tried to use this occasion to teach her child: “It is because of you, dear. Every bad action of yours will turn one of my hairs grey!”

The child replied innocently: “Now I know why grandmother has only grey hairs on her head.”

Example: An apple a day keeps doctors away, if you throw the apple hard enough.
