Trend Hunter gets a lot of shout outs, and although we’ve had thousands of media mentions, we were tremendously excited to be mentioned in an Oprah.com article.
Even better, the Oprah Magazine article, “The Mind Map: Six Steps to Get Your Creativity Flowing,” was by Tom Kelley, the general manager of IDEO, one of the design firm we admire most in the world.
Kelly mentioned Trendhunter.com and our newsletter, Trend Candy as a great source for ideas.
Here’s a look at the feature, from slide four of the article:
Blow Open Your Curiosity
Focus on what you love, but don’t limit yourself to only things that you love. Subscribe to new magazines, download podcasts on a topic that has nothing to do with your current life, go to lectures by people at the top of their field—even if you’ve never heard of their field, get books on tape, and follow websites that gather interesting information. (I get Cool News of the Day from Reveries.com and Trend Candy from TrendHunter.com) If you’ve been banging your head against an obstacle, this kind of cross-pollination can get you over it.
