Templates Can Help You BrainstormAuthor: Marc Hayes
There are times when you cannot come up with an idea for a brochure or a calendar that new and different. Maybe you have had the same thing for a number of years and are looking for something unique. Templates can help you brainstorm new ideas for your products. We are not talking about copying someone else’s design. That is truly a bad idea and can get you in a heap of trouble by doing it. It is best not to go there. Looking at a design can help you get the creative juices flowing and help you come up with an idea for your business.
The great thing about templates is that you can start with something. There are times when having a complete blank screen is too intimidating. It can also be a time waster because you may take too long thinking and miss deadlines. Having a starting place can really get the project going. It’s like being in a training class and beginning a brainstorm activity. Once the first person starts, you think about that first idea and try to come up with a better one. Once the ball starts rolling, lots of great ideas begin to flow. You are not copying off of the person in front of you. You are enhancing an idea and molding it into one that you can be happier with.
Most templates are very basic. You probably won’t see anything to splashy or special about them. They are not meant to necessarily win awards. They are a starting point. If they were meant to be the ending design, it would be something that a designer is doing for you. Templates are meant to start the process. Wherever the process takes you is a different story. You may end up with a totally different project or you may end up with something that is enhanced enough to show your own sense of style.
Templates are a great first step. Use them to open your mind to new ideas. Don’t just look at one template but several. You may take a little bit from each one to form your own new idea. Once you are finished, you will be happy with the results. Don’t expect to begin the process overnight. Make sure you allow enough time in your project plan to brainstorm. The end result is important because it will be your business’s strength and what people see attached to the business name.
