Droodles… reloaded!

For all the creative minds out there, here’s a droodle challenge.

Please share your ideas about each of the three droodles’ meaning.

And don’t forget to have fun! 🙂

Where do we (designers) start?

Well, before anything else, any project starts (or it should) with a rough, blurred or sketchy idea. After that we add all the bells and whistles depending on the allocated time, budget and the final intended medium (screen/print). But that first step, the intial concept, truly defines the whole outcome. That’s why we’re going to explore today one way of exciting and stimulating your creativity… droodles. The word itself is a combination between “doodle”, “drawing” and “riddle”. Their initial creator was Roger Price and they became well-known in the 1950s and 1960s.

If you still wonder what a “droodle” is… then please just read on.

A droodle is a minimalist cartoon featuring abstract pictorial elements in a square box and followed by a caption (or several) giving a humorous explanation of the picture’s subject. Below you can find a few examples.

Use this starting point to sparkle your imagination and extend your vision’s boundaries for any future project!
