Creativity can seem innate, but like many things, it is actually a delicate balance of nature and nurture. In other words, creative thinking can be enhanced by external forces, and isn’t necessarily reliant on “good genes” or natural ability. Luckily, new research points the way to a variety of mental and environmental approaches that can help us improve our creative output: 1.

While browsing through some design books that we have here at the office, I noticed how some logos were initially handmade, while there are others that used premade fonts and images and merged them together. Well, both of them are acceptable processes and there’s no standard design process to tell you which is better than the other, and I think choosing between the two is just about how you want your logo’s design final look and feel. Speaking of stock art, I’ve done an article before about stock images and its pros (and 1 con) in using them. Stock art is basically used the same way as stock images – they’re there to add flavor to a design or to improve the over reading experience of the audience.

Collaboration and connecting with others is a beautiful thing, but in the end, creation is done in solitude. All great art is done in isolation.

In the new issue of CR, I talk to Coca-Cola archivist, Ted Ryan, about the history of the brand's 125 year-old identity, explored in a new show at the Design Museum . One of the highlights of the display is a book documenting the design and build of their first neon sign for Piccadilly Circus, in 1954... When he returned to Atlanta, Ryan kindly sourced some scans of some of the pages from this rare publication, a few of which we used in the print piece in the July issue. The rest we present here as a series, alongside two Technical Data pages, should anyone be interested in how the sign was actually constructed. The opening page of the book reads as follows: "Outdoor Publicity Limited are pleased to present this volume to The Coca-Cola Export Corporation to record the lighting of the Piccadilly Sign in London on July 1st, 1954".
