Some long time ago, when I have been studying in Hungary, on my advertising class, I have developed my first POP up project. 3 dimensional phantasies will grab your attention on the spot when you hold it in your hands. Think how you can integrate such a media into your campaign, brand or simply an invitation to your birthday party. For inspiration check out this link.


I ask my self why do I write? For you, for myself or because of spreading the message... is there any value in what I do, is there any sense? Maybe better use this time for something else?... I have thought many times this direction, looking for the answers and reasons, but the only thing what I have found is that I really want to come back to my blog from time to time, and put there something that I really feel is valuable, for me, for some of you - I hope, and for the sake of spreading the message about ideas that make the life more interesting and creative.

Lego table

Creativity is the ability to conect the resources and materials in the unusual way and get a result that you would not arrive at if taking a conventional way. The guys at "Boys and Girls" did exactly the same and have created a lego table. I would love to have such at my home.

Kitesurfing, beard & my new girlfriend Eureka

or what about leaving to Philippines on Monday
Some time ago I have decided to grow a beard, shave my head bold and leave my office for one month trip to Philippines. Now - I have all what I need to fullfill my wild dreams. Tickets to Manila, couple of centimeters new grown beard, enough of hair on my head (will shave them on the beach when the sun will go down) to transform into a bold travel man. In addition I take my kitesurfing equipment & pair of shoes (still need to buy them). And on Monday fly away. One thing however was missing. What to do with blog? To tell you the truth I wanted to keep on blogging during my trip, but just had no idea how to integrate it into the main idea of this blog. It is not about travel, its about marketing and design. I was almost about to start new blog, but then my girlfriend "Eureka" has knocked on my head (still with a hair) and suggested I would continue writing about the same stuff what i did for the last month - design and marketing, just from the travelers perspective. I said thank you and gave her a kiss. She insisted to take me with her since she can help me to find out good stories on my way. I said ok. And gave her another kiss.

Story to be continued...

How to create your own pair of socks

Want to create your pair of socks? I do not know how can i help you, but maybe 'Four rooms' can. Four rooms is a 4 step creative process, which helps you to come up with a solution in case you are left alone in a room and have no-one to brainstorm with.

First room – you explore all the best what has been created in the world up to date. You visit all possible sources of information which are related to your subject. Musuems, books, stores, web. But you do not create in this room, because most probably that you will end up by producing a lower version of the best one in the world. Keep patient. Move on to second room.

Second room – dig into creation/ production processes. How socks become socks? Have no clue, but you better check it how sock are designed, knitted, sued, weared… what materials and where they come from, what special is about making them comfortable to wear and so on. Put on your socks and move on to third room.

Third room – advertising. You check out all possible advertisements about socks. You see how different brands are positioned, what promises they communicate. Check customer feedback on forums to see how they perceive the value, get insights on holes development and repair tips. Here you are almost finished with preparation phase so it is time to rush into fourth room right now.

Fourth room – dark room. That is the dark space where you sit alone with a long pair of socks and where the real work starts. So move on, your head is full of fruits, just harvest them, mix, blend and create your own unique pair of socks.

The power of story

I have always believed in a power of story. Once, when I was a little kid, I have been selling sprouts in a bazaar. There were early summer Saturday mornings in the mid 90's. Lots of rushing people around, lots of competition for better price & better product. But I used to manage to make a good profit everytime. There was one little trick I had to differentiate myself from other dosens of sprout sellers - I was a little boy telling big stories about his product. How special it is, where is it grown, how is it grown, how tasty and nice berries you will harvest in couple of months, once sprouts will get routed into your garden's soil. I have always had a book with me also. To look smarter and to stimulate my stories with visuals. In case you have doubt - I would quickly grab the book, open the page to point the full colour picture with a fresh and tasty berries. And then you pay for the story. Little kid collecting money from people in exchange for fresh sprouts wrapped into stories. I did it following my intuition. A bit bigger guys do it on purpose. Read here how good story can help you sell little things for big profit.

Switch to english

Starting from new year some people start new things. Someone quits smoking, someone stops hiding socks under the pillow. I wil make a switch also. Into english. From now my blog will take a 1 year rest from lithuanian letters, characters and will jump into my beloved one - eng. It does not mean anything. Just simple as that. Ok. Since I have shifted away from my Lithuanian, you can shift also from your daily routine and take a minute to listen to a smart talk from Dan Ariely about money. It can switch your attitude towards money. Believe me.
