10 Ways To Improve Your Visualization Skills

July 10th, 2007 by Jerome Dahdah

The world works in funny ways. I was just fighting with a creativity problem when my friend told me that he was, by chance, writing about this very issue:

There are innumerable creative aids, and most of them require an ability to visualize. Some people aren’t good at visualizing, so imagining different colors or objects can become a daunting task. Forget about trying to visualize how a room should be arranged; that’s next to impossible.

Sound familiar? Excommunicate.Net offers up 10 ways to help you improve your visualization skills with a few established and a few very unconventional methods.

    nice, I thought I am the only one who imagines things in clouds and tiles ;)

    For me, the best way to get a idea realized is to write down a list of requirements and then make two scribbles: One only with shapes and proportions and another on which you can refer to the first, but as sophisticated as you want your design to be. Finally you name all parts of the scribble with the entries of the list you created before. That makes you stronger and you loose fear of your own ideas (because you often have continous stream of sub ideas), and it leads to non-overload of design, concentrating fully on the requirements.

    Hey Kris, thanks for sharing your visualization method with us. I might actually give that a try. :)

    I’d love to hear what other people use as daily creativity “hacks”.
