江南·讓城市因歷史而美麗~~2018年3月31日上午,由浙江省社科聯、杭州城市學研究理事會、杭州師范大學聯合主辦的「浙江人文大講堂·未來講堂」開講儀式在杭州國際城市學研究中心倉前大樓舉行。原中共浙江省委常委、杭州市委書記,浙江省人民政府咨詢委員會副主任,杭州城市學研究理事會理事長王國平作題為《讓城市因歷史而美麗》的講座。

浙江省社科聯副主席陳先春,杭州市社科聯黨組書記、主席沈翔,杭州師范大學副校長方亮,杭州城研中心黨組書記、主任江山舞,浙江省委黨校原副校長、浙江省城市治理研究中心首席專家馬力宏,浙江省委組織部人才工作辦公室副主任陳榮華,杭州市社科聯副主席張旭東,杭州未來科技城管委會常務副主任趙喜凱等出席開講儀式。300余名省市區有關部門及企事業單位人員、高校師生、社區居民聆聽講座。

陳先春在致辭中說,浙江歷史文化厚重,從河姆渡文化、良渚文化一路走來,堅持海納百川、兼收並蓄,不斷地傳承歷史、守正出新,迸發出全新的活力。「浙江人文大講堂」是推進「文化浙江」建設的重要品牌活動。在集聚阿里巴巴、夢想小鎮、人工智能小鎮、海創園等一大批高新企業、高端人才的未來科技城,推出高品質的社科普及講堂——「浙江人文大講堂·未來講堂」,意義重大、恰逢其時、大有作為。

相信通過各方的協同創新,「浙江人文大講堂·未來講堂」一定能成為城西科創大走廊的「人文高地」、全省社科普及的「金字招牌」、智庫咨政啟民的「樣本工程」,為推動浙江哲學社會科學事業繁榮發展、書寫新時代的文化自信作出更大貢獻。

王國平在講座中說,習近平總書記指出:「要堅定中國特色社會主義道路自信、理論自信、制度自信,說到底是要堅定文化自信。文化自信是更基本、更深沉、更持久的力量。」歷史文化是城市的靈魂,要像愛惜自己的生命一樣保護好城市歷史文化遺產。保護文化遺產、傳承城市文脈是一種歷史責任。我們沒有任何權力和理由使文化遺產在當代消失,只能不遺余力地保護與傳承。一座城市的核心競爭力產生於,也只能產生於其固有的特色,也就是區別於其他城市的差異性、獨特性,甚至是唯一性,而這種特色,這種差異性、獨特性,甚至唯一性,只能來自於歷史文化遺產。作為一座歷史文化名城,要建設獨特韻味、別樣精彩的世界名城,重中之重就是要做好歷史文化遺產的保護和利用。

西湖、京杭大運河已分別於2011年、2014年成功列入世界文化遺產,良渚遺址申遺工作也已進入倒計時。南宋皇城大遺址、西溪濕地、錢塘江古海塘與錢江潮、湘湖與跨湖橋文化遺址,國內外專家都認為具備申遺的條件。杭州必須要樹立雄心壯志,通過15年乃至更長時間的努力,努力使杭州成為中國第一座擁有五處、六處乃至七處世界文化遺產的城市,從而推動杭州城市的核心競爭力、知名度與美譽度再上新台階,成為真正的「人間天堂」、「世界名城」。

王國平指出,「拆老城、建新城」的城市化模式,正在吞噬富有地域特色的城市文化,摧毀老街、老宅、老樹等歷史遺產,造成傳統風貌的破壞,歷史文脈的割裂,鄰裡社區的解體,城市記憶的消失,使城市成為水泥叢林,從而抹殺了城市個性。

當前和今後一個時期,扎實推進文化遺產保護和利用工作,首先要樹立以下科學理念:第一,牢固確立保護歷史文化遺產是最大政績的理念,把保護歷史文化名城作為第一責任來抓;第二,牢固確立保護歷史文化遺產就是保護生產力的理念,把保護歷史文化名城作為第一要務來抓;第三,牢固確立保護和發展「魚」與「熊掌」可以兼得的理念,在保護與發展之間尋找一個最佳結合點;第四,牢固確立保護歷史文化遺產人人有責的理念,形成政府、媒體、專家、市民良性互動;第五,牢固樹立「城市有機更新」理念,走可持續城市化道路;第六,牢固確立打造「建築歷史博物館」的理念,當好歷史文化遺產的「薪火傳人」;第七,牢固確立「保護第一、積極保護」的理念,在保護與利用之間尋找一個最大公約數。

王國平指出,城市需要創新驅動、動能轉換,更需要人文關懷、文化自信。杭州要與其他城市一樣,要以搶救的姿態,打贏一場歷史文化名城保衛戰。要始終堅持以人為本、規劃引領、研究先行,不斷打造文化遺產保護利用的「杭州模式」。具體而言,一要堅持「保老城、建新城」模式,保護好城市的「根」和「魂」;二要堅持「城市有機更新」戰略,大力推進城市形態、街道建築、自然人文景觀、道路設施、城市河道、城市產業、城市管理的有機更新;三要堅持構建點、線、面相結合的保護體系,對歷史文化遺產實行「應保盡保」;四要堅持破解「錢從哪裡來和去、地從哪裡來和去、人從哪裡來和去、手續怎麼辦」等四大難題;五要堅持以「最小干預、和而不同」為准則,積極打造「建築歷史博物館」;六要堅持研究先行,以高層次研究帶高起點規劃、高強度保護、高標准建設、高效率治理和高水平經營。

講座前,王國平、陳先春共同為「浙江人文大講堂·未來講堂」揭牌。據悉,「浙江人文大講堂·未來講堂」擬每季度舉行1講,邀請國內權威城市學專家學者主講,旨在搭建一個「科技」與「人文」碰撞的舞台,不斷提升未來科技城的人文氛圍,為廣大科技工作者、社區居民以及懷揣著夢想的年輕人,提供精神食糧、文化大餐和思想盛宴,滿足人民日益增長的美好生活需要。

江南·宋韻文化的認識維度和內涵例解~~2022年9月23日上午,由浙江省社科聯指導、杭州國際城市學研究中心浙江省城市治理研究中心主辦、杭州師范大學協辦的「浙江人文大講堂•未來講堂」第十講在城研中心倉前大樓109報告廳開講。

浙江省社會科學院二級研究員、原副院長陳野作《宋韻文化的認識維度和內涵例解》講座。浙江省社科聯黨組成員、副主席陳先春出席會議並致辭,杭州城研中心黨組成員、副主任杜紅心主持會議。

來自杭州國際城市學研究中心、杭州學相關分支學科、杭州師范大學相關學院師生、余杭區相關街鎮、杭州城西科創大走廊相關企事業單位的100餘人同步參加線上線下會議。

一曲悠揚的古琴彈奏《梅花三弄》帶領大家走進宋韻文化講堂。

陳先春副主席指出,浙江提出實施「宋韻文化傳世工程」以來,省社科聯推出了浙江省文化研究工程-宋韻研究系列成果,受到社會各界的廣泛關注和積極反響;計劃到2035年,出版宋韻文化系列研究叢書百部以上,完成宋代主要文獻整理,形成較為完整的宋韻文化研究成果體系。宋韻文化蘊含著浙江優秀傳統文化的精神內核,除研究之外,要更加注重傳承、傳播、科普工作,浙江人文大講堂·未來講堂就是很好的形式。希望浙江智庫能充分發揮平台優勢,讓南宋文化這張浙江文化金名片更加深入人心、走向世界。

陳野認為,對宋韻文化的認識,要以全領域的視角,跳出文學藝術看宋韻文化;要以全地域的視角,跳出杭州、浙江看宋韻文化;要以鑄牢中華民族共同體意識的視角,跳出兩宋統治地域看宋韻文化;要以同時期不同區域的橫向比較,跳出中國看宋韻文化;要以長時段的縱向比較,跳出兩宋時期看宋韻文化。陳野指出,跳出宋韻看宋韻,是為更全面、更系統、更立體地研究宋韻文化的內涵特征、歷史地位、精神標識;更科學、更准確、更深刻地提煉其中蘊含的跨越時空、超越國度、富有永恆魅力、具有當代價值的文化基因和文化精神。

會中,她通過結合兩宋時期花鳥畫的傳承與流變、兩宋山水畫之變等橫縱向比較,形象生動地例解了宋韻文化內涵。

她還從「基於華夏認同的民族精神」「基於家國情懷的愛國精神」「基於海外交往的開放精神」「基於多元包容的創造精神」「基於探索求真的科學精神」「基於社會關切的人文精神」六個方面,總結了宋韻文化的精神實質。

講座深入淺出,兼具學術性與科普性,讓在場的聽眾進一步開拓了視野,對宋韻文化有了更深的了解與認識。

講座結束後,陳野還就杭州宋韻文化對外交流、國際傳播途徑以及宋韻文化的要素、氣質、精神在朝代變更中的影響作用等問題回答了聽眾的提問。

會前,杭州國際城市學研究中心浙江省城市治理研究中心聘請陳野為智庫客座研究員並頒發證書。

「浙江人文大講堂•未來講堂」為浙江省社科聯與杭州國際城市學研究中心聯合推出的品牌講堂,旨在在杭州城西科創大走廊搭建一個「科技」與「人文」碰撞的舞台,為周邊廣大科技工作者、高校師生及社區居民提供精神大餐、思想盛宴。迄今已累計舉辦9講,邀請了原中共浙江省委常委、杭州市委書記,浙江省人民政府咨詢委員會副主任,杭州城市學研究理事會理事長,浙江省城市治理研究中心主任、首席專家王國平,中央美術學院原院長、中國美術學院原院長潘公凱,北京大學講席教授,北京大學政府管理學院院長俞可平等著名專家學者,圍繞「讓城市因歷史而美麗」「筆墨藝術、美術理論、裝置藝術、建築設計的創意實踐」「傳統謚法的政治學意義」等主題開展演講,獲得了聽眾的一致好評,並產生了廣泛社會影響。

30 insightful creativity quotes to inspire innovation By Ben Barnhart

There are many voices on creativity, how to be creative, and the creative process itself.

From Albert Einstein to Steve Jobs, the world’s greatest leaders and artists have shared their musings on creativity.

We can draw inspiration from them as we look at their careers and achievements.

We’ve compiled a list of the most inspiring creativity quotes to help you think out of the box and find new solutions to problems.

And, spoiler alert—the list doesn't include Steve Jobs' famous words, “Creativity is just connecting things,” because you’ve probably already heard that one too many times. We’ve tried to be a little more diverse and hopefully offer you something new.

Whether you’re a lucky human who seems to have a source of constant creativity or you’re struggling with a creative block at the moment, these little nuggets of wisdom can guide and inspire you.

Jumpstart your ideas with Linearity Curve

Take your designs to the next level.

A note on inspiration

Creative people need inspiration.

The creative process is one of human's most complex and beautiful parts. Creativity is messy, frustrating, enjoyable, and different for everyone. Being creative helps us understand ourselves and the world.
It’s a natural part of human expression that we should all value and cultivate.

One of the essential components of creativity is inspiration. We’re not always going to have creative workers such as designers or writers, in particular, know that you’ve got to sit down and do the work even when you’re not inspired if you’re going to achieve anything.

We can ensure we remain inspired by surrounding ourselves with the right people, knowledge, places, and resources. Simply reading other people’s insights on creativity is integral to staying inspired.

Our creative juices often flow when we can bounce daring ideas off each other and nurture a community around inspiration and creative endeavors.

The role of creativity in marketing, design, and problem-solving.

(02 September 2021, https://www.linearity.io)

Comment by Paris En mémoire on February 12, 2024 at 10:21am

Creativity is more than an abstract concept. It's a fundamental tool for success in marketing, design, and problem-solving.

In marketing, creativity can differentiate a brand, making it stand out in a sea of competitors. It's the magic ingredient that turns ordinary campaigns into viral sensations, capturing the public's attention and leaving a lasting impression.

In design, creativity breathes life into ideas, transforming abstract concepts into tangible realities. It empowers designers to innovate, pushing beyond the boundaries of the known and exploring new horizons.

Whether it's a logo that captures the essence of a brand, a product design that revolutionizes an industry, or a user interface that makes software a joy to use, creativity is at the heart of it all.

Creativity also plays a pivotal role in problem-solving. It encourages us to look beyond conventional solutions and consider new approaches. It's about connecting the dots in unexpected ways, leading to effective and novel solutions.

Creativity quotes

Before you check out these inspiring quotes on creativity and read our thoughts on each quote, remember to take a moment to consider what each quote means to you.

What would you have to say about creativity? And what is your unique interpretation of each quote?

Remember, the number one secret of creativity is originality (in our humble opinion), so it’s important to stay conscious of your own creative ideas when diving into the ideas of others.

1. "Creativity is seeing what others see and thinking what no one else ever thought." – Albert Einstein

This is one of Albert Einstein's musings on originality.

Originality is a topic of great discussion in the creative world, with many artists claiming that there is no such thing. Mark Twain once said, “There's no such thing as an original idea.”

But Einstein argues that each person has a unique perspective that lends itself to originality.

Being creative is about presenting a piece of art, a design, an idea, or an innovation in a way that is filtered through your own unique perspective, talent, and skills. Perhaps that’s what Einstein meant by this.
Ready to create brand assets that pack a punch?

2. “Art is the elimination of the unnecessary.” – Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso had so much wisdom to share on creativity.

He also said that “art is chaos taking shape.” There seems to be a common idea between these inspiring creativity quotes: creativity is an evolutionary process of refinement.

A creative project, whether an illustration or a logo, a sculpture, a fashion item, or a user interface—whatever form it takes, the finished product was shaped by countless influencing factors. These include culture, colors, a brief, fonts, styles, emotions, politics, etc.

A creative carefully chooses what to include and exclude. It results in something beautiful that somehow makes sense amongst the chaos of the endless influencing factors around us at any time.

But it doesn't happen overnight. It takes courageous patience and an unrelenting drive to challenge the status quo, coming up with innovative ideas and refining them until they work.

Don't worry about asking the wrong questions—or perhaps giving the wrong answers. Putting brilliant ideas into action to see what happens is one of the best sources of creativity, because it helps you find the parts you need to improve.

3. "You use a glass mirror to see your face. You use works of art to see your soul." – George Bernard Shaw


This phrase is one of the many aphorisms by George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950), a famous Irish playwright, critic, and polemicist. His work is characterized by satire and insightful commentary on societal issues.
Shaw uses the illustration of a mirror to show how art is a reflection of one's inner world.


Every human has a unique perspective of the world. Everyone can create something original. Just like every person has a unique reflection in the mirror, all our creative expressions can be unique, too.


To any creative type seeking authenticity and originality in their style, the more you connect with your inner world, the more you will support originality in your art instead of continuously looking outside for inspiration.


4. “A creative life is an amplified life. It's a bigger life, a happier life, an expanded life, and a hell of a lot more interesting life” –
Elizabeth Gilbert


The wonderful Elizabeth Gilbert has exploded as a thought leader on “the creative life” since her book Big Magic (2016) became a bestseller. Her Ted Talks have also reached millions of people.


This quote reminds us that creativity blossoms when your lifestyle supports it. You have to be inspired, connect with interesting people, learn new things, and see new people consistently.


You can keep expanding your way of thinking with art and culture, and satisfy your curiosity with travel and education. You can stay inspired by surrounding yourself with beautiful design, fashion, and food.
marketing power template


You must experience interesting things to know how to create anything interesting.


5. “Don’t wait for inspiration. It comes while working."
– Henri Matisse


Matisse was quite the fountain of wisdom regarding insights into creativity.


This quote is an important reminder that you won’t always have an endless supply of inspiration. Even when you’re not feeling it, make things anyway. It doesn't mean that you have an uncreative mind—it just means that you must make a habit of creating things even when you don't feel inspired.


Matisse suggests that once you start working, you'll unlock your creativity, and inspiration will start flowing. It'll be fueled as you continue working.


6. “The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”
– Sylvia Plath


Creatives can often relate to having feelings of self-doubt.


A creative mind is riddled with self-doubt. It's this questioning nature that produces creativity. And we argue that it doesn’t need to be your enemy.


Self-doubt is normal—even the greatest leaders and artists experience it. The key to success is holding the tension of opposites and put yourself out there anyway.


Acknowledge that you're feeling self-doubt, and carry on creating.


Remember, creativity is a chaotic process.

7. “Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.” – Mary Lou Cook

The creative process is messy, no doubt.

Mary Lou Cook reminds us that to be creative, we have to get messy, explore, and go against the grain. The most notable part of this quote is “making mistakes” and “having fun.”
Don't take things too seriously, and allow the spirit of fun. This approach will unlock your infinite capacity for creativity and foster an innovation mindset.

8. “It's no good being too easily swayed by people's opinions. You have to believe in yourself.” – Donatella Versace

Madame Versace knows what she’s talking about.

Perhaps the chief enemy of creativity, even more so than self-doubt, is seeking others' approval. You’re never going to win everybody over.

The most successful people in any creative endeavor trust themselves and believe in their work so much that they don’t need anyone's approval or permission.

Staying laser-focused on your creative work will help you turn viable ideas into innovations.

9. “There is no doubt that creativity is the most important human resource of all. Without creativity, there would be no progress, and we would be forever repeating the same patterns.” – Edward De Bono

Creativity isn't taken seriously enough in "serious" contexts like business and government.

But there's evidence that this is changing. If you look at business hubs like Silicon Valley, you’ll see how creativity and play are valued as an essential part of technological advancement. Larger corporate institutions in low-risk, horizontal industries also look to the Valley for inspiration and innovative practices.

The field of creativity is being studied as a type of learning process, and creative principles are being applied in business, education, policy-making, and beyond.

In business, you need to find ways to foster a culture of innovation in your team. This can be done by providing opportunities for creative collaboration between individuals and cross-departmental teams. Listening to your customers and taking calculated risks will also provide innovation opportunities.

A successful innovation strategy will lead to business progress and team growth.

10. "Begin by learning to draw and paint like the old masters. After that, you can do as you like; everyone will respect you." – Salvador Dalí

Reaching the level of the "old masters" may take a lifetime of dedication—and you might want to spend your lifetime focusing on other things, too.

But that doesn't make you any less creative.

There are many styles to experiment with. If you’re a designer or illustrator, you need to focus on honing your skills and experimenting with new mediums.

With practice, you'll be able to accurately capture what’s in your imagination.

Salvador Dalí captured such incredibly imaginative imagery because he had incredible skills that afforded him this ability.

We also think that maybe Dalí meant you have to earn respect as a creative by studying the established rules and principles of art. Then, you have the privilege of breaking them.

Pablo Picasso had similar ideas evident in his quote, “Learn the rules like a pro so you can break them like an artist.”

Comment by Paris En mémoire on February 7, 2024 at 4:08pm


11. “Create with the heart; build with the mind.” – Criss Jami

The thinking mind can get in the way when trying to be creative.

Overthinking is another blocker to creativity. Criss Jami’s quote reminds us to create from a place of emotion and inspiration. Your art and designs won’t always make logical sense and don’t need to.
Every idea, doodle, and design is a stepping stone in your creative process. Skip one of them, and you might never find out what new heights of creativity you can reach.

12. “Deadlines and things make you creative.” – Jack White

Here's an intriguing perspective from White Stripes musician Jack White.

Many would argue that deadlines “and things” put pressure on you and hinder creativity. However, we believe many marketers and designers will agree that deadlines push us into action and force us to get creative.

Budget limitations, time constraints, and a lack of resources drive creative thinking and sharpen problem-solving skills.

The innovation process is often put into motion by external constraints that force us to reimagine modern society. Inflexible people may struggle to act creatively in constrained circumstances, as their natural bent leans towards keeping things the same.

But discomfort is oftentimes the birthplace of innovation and an instrument of entrepreneurship.

13. “You can be cautious or you can be creative, but there's no such thing as a cautious creative.” – George Lois

Art director and designer turned author, George Lois is most famous for designing almost 100 iconic magazine covers for Esquire between 1962 and 1973.

This is one of the most famous quotes about creativity of all time. Lois reminds us that we must get messy and break some rules when exerting creative effort.

Lois goes so far as to say that caution isn't an aspect of creativity. When faced with a conflict of ideas, throw caution to the wind and do something out of the ordinary.

14. "You can't use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have." – Maya Angelou

What a relief to know that your creativity can’t run out. It’s an endless resource that becomes more activated the more you unleash it.

Perhaps that’s why it’s often called a “creative flow.” Everyone experiences “dry spells,” but this can be due to a lack of inspiration or too much stress. It doesn’t mean your creativity has been used up or lost.

The key to creativity is unlocking something within yourself so that the creativity can flow.

Comment by Paris En mémoire on February 6, 2024 at 4:07am

15. "There is no innovation and creativity without failure." – Brené Brown

What would any inspirational quote article be without a bit of wisdom from Brené Brown?

Failure is so important to learn from. It teaches us how to refine and where to improve, plus “failures” can guide us to something better, something unexpected. They can break us open to something we’ve never thought of before.

16. “The creative process is a process of surrender, not control.” – Bruce Lee

The control comes afterward, when we're refining. But to get to that point, we have to get out of our own way and allow creativity to flow through us.

Art is surrender. If you’ve ever dived into Eastern philosophies, you’ll know that people spend entire lifetimes simply learning the art of surrendering. You don’t need to become a monk, but you might want to consciously practice surrender while you're creating.

Often, the secret to creativity lies in the subconscious. By learning to surrender, we let go of rational thinking and the conscious mind to discover the gold that lies deeper within ourselves.

17. “The creative adult is the child who survived.” – Ursula Le Guin

Some research shows that all humans start out creative as children, and creativity is simply neglected, or we’re trained out of it as we grow older.

Picasso had a similar opinion to Le Guin when he said, “Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.” This is a reminder that, in order to access creativity, we have to let our inner child come out.

We have to play and be curious. A true sign of intelligence is allowing the child within to come out and play and understanding the value in this child-like point of view.

18. “Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.” – Vincent Van Gogh

This quote from painter Vincent Van Gogh reminds us that creative projects, especially larger projects, don’t happen overnight.

It takes working at it in a series of moments consistently. It also reminds us that a career, a portfolio, or even a hobby takes time to build. Every project you complete is a step closer to becoming great at what you do.

Your greatness is accumulated through a series of moments; it doesn’t happen in just one moment.

19. “Make visible what, without you, might perhaps never have been seen.” – Oprah Winfrey

Where would anyone be without the wisdom of Oprah Winfrey?

Expressing our creativity is an opportunity to shed light on something. This can take the form of solutions, inventions, and art. It comes back to that unique perspective, once again. Each person’s creative expression adds to the birth of new ideas in the world, variety, and diversity in perspective.

20. “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” – Leonardo Da Vinci

We’ve dedicated an entire post to the beauty of simplicity. Making something complex simple in art and design is often the most significant challenge.

It takes craft, intelligence, and experience. When trying to convey sophistication in a project, always keep the overall goal of simplicity at the center.

21. “Draw the art you want to see, start the business you want to run, play the music you want to hear, write the books you want to read, build the products you want to use – do the work you want to see done.” – Austin Kleon

When in doubt, create what you’d like!

We can get so caught up trying to create for an audience or a client that we neglect to create for ourselves.

The most impactful and beautiful creations come from artists and designers who personally love what they are creating.

22. “Creativity is a wild mind and a disciplined eye.” – Dorothy Parker

This quote speaks to the balance that’s necessary for any creative project.

Yes, it requires freedom, letting go, letting your imagination run wild, and all the rest. But it also requires a refined eye that knows how to pull everything together in an aesthetically pleasing way that makes it enjoyable for a viewer to experience.

23. "Creativity doesn't wait for that perfect moment. It fashions its own perfect moments out of ordinary ones." – Bruce Garrabrandt

Bruce Garrabrandt, a self-taught artist, emphasizes the active nature of creativity with this quote. He believes that creativity does not depend on waiting for the perfect moment but making the most out of the ordinary ones.

As an artist who began with no inherent talent for drawing, Garrabrandt's perspective on creativity is rooted in his own journey of learning skills, overcoming frustrations and setbacks, and eventually becoming a professional artist.

He encourages the development of individual gifts into talents and abilities, fostering creativity.

24. "You can't wait for inspiration, you have to go after it with a club." – Jack London

This quote is from a 1905 essay by Jack London titled "Getting Into Print." London was a prolific writer who depended on his literary skills for his livelihood. He encouraged other writers to proactively seek inspiration rather than waiting for it to come to them.

He saw the writing process as requiring discipline, persistence, and the willingness to learn from others.

25. "If you want creative workers, give them enough time to play." – John Cleese

John Cleese is an English actor, comedian, and writer. Cleese is known for his comedic work in Monty Python's Flying Circus and Fawlty Towers, and he has often spoken about the importance of creativity, play, and humor.

26. "Serious design, serious play, is something else. For one thing, it often happens spontaneously, intuitively, accidentally or incidentally." – Paula Scher

In her 2008 TED talk, Great Design is Serious, Not Solemn, designer Paula Scher describes the difference between serious and solemn design. Scher is most famous for the album covers she created at CBS records, and the large text-based designs she created in the span of her accoladed career.

Seriousness is a laser focus on the task at hand, and a full immersion in the creative process. Solemn design, on the other hand, is focused on perfection and quality.
There's still a place for solemn design. But to be truly innovative and produce something new, you need to be creatively at play.

It's this creative energy that has led to some of the most surprising, delightful, and effective designs of all time.
