Tuesday inspiration: Taking creativity seriously every day (for a year)

Half way through hammering out an e-mail to Noah Scalin -- the creative powerhouse behind Another Limited Rebellion Design -- I stumbled on this video where Noah talks about his experiences with the "Skull-A-Day" project at the Good Experience Live conference.

Here's the summary of his talk:

To design a different skull every day for a year, it turns out, you need a little help from your friends - and some strangers, too. Noah Scalin talks about one of the boldest creative challenges you'll ever hear about.

It's about 30 minutes long, and worth every minute -- especially, if you're in the market for some Tuesday-morning creative inspiration.

I'm crossing my fingers that I'll get to collaborate with someone that creative this year.
