I sit here at work, behind the computer thinking, visualizing, being creative. I have a website to build for a small Maine restaurant this week. It is still in the stages of concept. The challenge I am having is a strange one this week. After returning from Florida after 21 days in May, I can not seem to be creative, I have a mental block. I miss the sun, breeze, and of course the ocean of the west coast of Florida. My question to you is, does one have to be happy with their surroundings or can you force good design? How much of your design process is creative vs mechanical and how do you overcome the depression of your working environment?
