As Senior Designer and the self-appointed office jester, I often challenge my co-workers to engage in creative shenanigans. Right now, for instance, there’s this fun challenge on the water cooler:
1. Engage people in short, fun challenges that break them out of their daily routines and stimulate creative, out-of-the-box thinking.
2. Get me out of doing actual work for a few minutes.
About a year ago, I asked everyone in the office to draw a horse.
Drawing-by-hand is, like glueing cheerios to cardboard, a skill that is taken very seriously in elementary school but often goes unpracticed later in life. Even for us “creatives,” the almighty mouse has all but vanquished the pen in the applied arts. So when I asked my coworkers to sketch a horse with an ACTUAL pen on ACTUAL paper with their ACTUAL hands, they approached my horse-drawing challenge with child-like enthusiasm.
After I collected all of the horse drawings, one thing became abundantly clear: Everyone’s drawing of a horse is as unique as the drawer.
For Babble’s 2nd annual drawing challenge, I asked everyone in the office to draw a cat. The results are below. Enjoy! — Mandalee, Senior Designer
