Creative Search Continues

A few weeks ago I shared a list of creative company names and signs in an article titled Search for Creativity. Since that time I’ve received several contributions to this on-going list to add to those I’ve continued to discover myself.

In our “Get Back in the Box” creativity presentation, we constantly remind attendees to be on the look out for examples of creativity everywhere they go. They’re all around us. We pass many of them daily but seldom recognize or acknowledge them … kind of a “functional blindness.” The reason is simple. We don’t respond or appreciate these examples because they’ve become part of our daily environment and simply blend into our subconscious rather than inspiring us as examples of what can be achieved if we’ll simply re-frame on occasion.

Take a look and appreciate the creative juices which flow across our country.
