Author, Napoleon Hill once said, “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe it can achieve”. When taking into account the various creations and innovations conceived and brought to life lately, one cannot but agree with this sentiment.
Take for instance simple activities such as doodling, once a thing to pass the time during boring lectures or meetings often driven by the subconscious mind, has now become a thing that is practised by people everywhere. Doodling we can safely say has inspired this latest innovation, the 3 Doodler, the first 3D pen developed by Peter Dilworth, Maxwell Bogue and Daniel Cowen of WobbleWorks, Inc. Bringing doodles to life is the 3D pen which works by extruding heated plastic that cools almost instantly into a solid, stable structure, allowing for the free-hand creation of three-dimensional objects.
Modern graphic design broadly covers all spheres of human life, with graphic designers using creativity in the quest to solve problems. The past two years have seen a revival and renewal of many art and design styles incorporated in various modern design projects. Doodling is one such style and has become an activity encouraged by creatives the world over, hailed for benefits such as — being good for the mind, good for your health and good for creativity. In recent times, it has gained popularity and renewed relevance with various graphic designers incorporating doodles within their illustrative work, creating beautiful, arresting designs. There is no doubt that this art form has been and still is a great, fun way that designers are using to express themselves.
So as you allow your mind to wonder distractedly, spontaneously drawing in the margins of whatever notes or projects you should be working on, who knows, you might just stumble upon the next best innovation, after all, the mind is a powerful tool whose abilities stretch beyond cognitive capabilities. Imagine what your mind can conceive.
