Quotes by linds redding - (7 quotes)

Linds Redding - From the Competition category:

Creative Departments and design studios used to be... places, where you could say and do just about anything creatively... without fear of ridicule or judgement. It has to be this way, or you will just close up like a clamshell. It's like trying to have sex, with your mum listening outside the bedroom door. Can't be done. Then some bright spark had the idea of setting everyone up in competition. It became a contest... Winner gets to keep his job. (Linds Redding)

Linds Redding - From the Creativity category:

The trick to being truly creative... is to be completely unselfconscious. To resist the urge to self-censor. To not-give-a-shit what anybody thinks. That's why children are so good at it. And why people with Volkswagens, and mortgages, Personal Equity Plans and matching Louis Vuitton luggage are not. (Linds Redding)

Linds Redding - From the Eccentricity category:

Apart from the occasional severed ear or descent into fecal-eating dementia, the creative impulse is mostly little more than a quaint eccentricity. But introduce this mostly benign neurosis into a commercial context... well that way my friends lies misery and madness. (Linds Redding)

Linds Redding - From the Money category:

Truly creative people tend not to be motivated by money. That's why so few of us have any. (Linds Redding)

Linds Redding - From the Obsession category:

The compulsion to create is unstoppable. It's a need that has to be filled. (Linds Redding)

Linds Redding - From the Rewards category:

The riches we crave are acknowledgment and appreciation of the ideas that we have and the things that we make. (Linds Redding)

Linds Redding - From the Technology category:

Our technology whizzes along at the velocity of a speeding electron, and our poor overtaxed neurons struggle to keep up. Everything has become a split-second decision. Find something you like. Share it. Have a half-baked thought. Tweet it. Don't wait. Don't hesitate. Seize the moment. Keep up. There will be plenty of time to repent later. Oh, and just to cover your ass, don't forget to stick a smiley :) on the end just in case you've overstepped the mark. (Linds Redding)
