Collaborative creativity

Being a freelancer means I do most creative work on my own. Occasionally when I get to work on a project that involves other creative people, it’s like a breath of fresh air.

There’s just something amazing about sitting around a table, or in my case a Campfire chat room, and discussing creative work.

There is no shortage of great things that can come out of collaboration. I can do a lot on my own, but it’s usually input from one or two people that can make my work even better.

There needs to be an in-between. Something where you can collaborate with creative people on projects without having to work full-time for someone else at a design firm.

So do you work better on your own or collaborating with someone else?

    Hey, I just read your post, its an interesting perspective on the creativity, form the POV of a freelancer….I’m a PhD student studying creative processes, and interviewed a few freelancers in amongst my research (mainly ethnography)…ANYWAY, take a look at my blog and see if you have anything to say on the matter: this post is about creativity management really, and I want to talk more about creative process and co-creation/collaboration…
