Sesame Street Visual Thinking- 03.06.08
“cool it, cool it, man, you’re being too literal. What you need is a lesson in abstract thinking… [wow. you are weird]… the funny thing about abstract thinking is you can’t get away from it… to get rid of an abstract thought you have to erase it by thinking backwards.” I don’t know about you, but that makes perfect sense to me. And remind me again, why don’t we have more television like old school Sesame Street anymore? If we make a NOTCOT show, i think we really need to head back in this direction.
Visual Thinking, i think it’s something that every design client needs! Check out the three videos embedded below for some enlightening…
Visual Thinking #3 - SHAPES!
Visual Thinking #2 - ABSTRACT THINKING!
Visual Thinking #1 ~ super old school in black and white!
First discovered Visual Thinking #3 over at Core77 ~ and that led me to the youtube that caught me up with the others…. really shapes are fun and all, but #2 is where its at. I have a new found respect for Kermie after this vid.
Wow, this really makes me want to buy the Sesame Street Old School DVD sets for everyone i know… esp those with kids popping out soon!
