Whether you’re designing a juggling routine or the next big thing in men’s footwear, the creative process always starts with ideas. Brainstorming is a method of generating a ton of ideas, and then winnowing them down to the good stuff. Mark Hayward will talk about his creative process, and help you figure out how to improve your own idea generation. Come with a problem that needs solving, and we’ll sick the group on it.
Mark Hayward has been a variety arts performer since 1990. He is a World Yo-yo Champion, a member of a World Champion Juggling Team, and a Spintop Champion. His mom is proud. Mark has traveled the world with a yo-yo on his finger (well, mostly in his pocket), and has made appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman, The Late Late Show with James Corden, America’s Got Talent, and the NBC Nightly News (without committing a crime). Someday Mark hopes to perform for both the President and the Queen. Not being a convicted criminal should help with that.
