Where is it written that designers can only look to other designers for inspiration? Or videographers to other videographers? In any creative industry, there are multitudes of influences barraging us daily that shape our view of the industry. From an ad on TV to the logo of a local coffee house. But what if we start looking outside our own “creative bubble” for inspiration? Meaning, what other forms of creativity could help round out our view of what it means to be a creative and what can we learn from them?

You don’t need to be in a traditional creative field to benefit from a spark of innovation and problem-solving. This is what this list is all about; people who look at the world just a little differently to create, entertain, educate, and inspire.

Just a disclaimer… a beard is not mandatory to be creative. But it might help. This is just a sampling of a few influential creative minds. Hopefully, this list will spark new forms of creativity for you and help you keep a look out for others to learn from.
