Waiting on Wednesday: Doodle Revolution


The Doodle Revolution

Sunni Brown 

PD: 05.26.15 by Penguin Publishing 


There is NO SUCH THING as a mindless doodle What did Einstein, JFK, Edison, Marie Curie, and Henry Ford have in common? They were all inveterate doodlers. These powerhouse minds knew instinctively that doodling is deep thinking in disguise-a simple, accessible, and dynamite tool for innovating and solving even the stickiest problems. Sunni Brown's mission is to bring the power of the Doodle to the rest of us. She leads the Revolution defying all those parents, teachers, and bosses who say Stop doodling! Get serious! Grow up! She overturns misinformation about doodling, demystifies visual thinking, and shows us the power of applying our innate visual literacy. She'll teach you how to doodle any object, concept, or system imaginable, shift habitual thinking patterns, and transform boring text into displays that can engage any audience. Sunni Brown was named one of the "100 Most Creative People in Business" and one of the "10 Most Creative People on Twitter" by Fast Company. She is founder of a creative consultancy, an international speaker, the co-author of Gamestorming, and the leader of a global campaign for visual literacy called The Doodle Revolution. Her TED Talk on doodling has drawn more than a million views on TED.com. 


The universe of Harry Potter started on a napkin so it makes me wonder how many huge ideas started on something so small. It begins with our minds and a writing utensil. 

This book gives me hope that there was a method to my madness as I found my doodles on my notebook more interesting than the doodles on the white board. 
Go use your noodle and doodle :)

  4. This is very interesting! I'm actually not a doodler at all, but I'm curious about what makes other people more inclined to do it. I could probably learn something from this!

  5. Ooh nice! I used to doodle all the time, mainly back in school days...because yeah....LOL! Though later on my doodles started turning into notes for stories I wanted to write and sometimes I would write a scene or such for said story!
