6 Hat Thinking combined with art & making prompts

I’ve been playing with Edward de Bono’s 6 Thinking Hat system and Eno / Schmidt’s Oblique Strategies and adapting / combining them in touch enabled sliders.

The content in each box is a quote, phrase or question I’ve personally found useful as encouragement or inspiration, or as a way of analysing the work or process.

I used a jQuery plugin to arrange the content that shuffle the prompts each time the page loads.

It’s still a work in progress, but I’ve found applying the colours as ‘thinking filters’ and using the randomisation  useful strategies.

I tend to have no problem in generating ideas, but find this helpful as either as a way of focusing or moving the work forward.
