When your job is to be creative—whether it’s creating gorgeous store windows, vibrant retail copy, inspiring store design or even riveting and engaging blog posts (insert massive throat clear here)—sometimes the creativity just won’t come. No matter how many organic green teas you have or meditation breaks you take, sometimes you’re left with no more than a buzzing in your mind.
That’s when you have to step way outside the box to think about who might be more creative than you are in that very moment.
And a Girl Scout could most likely be your answer.
1) Bake a lot of cookies, have milk on tap.
2) Rally together a bunch of Girl Scouts, ask them to bring their can-do attitude and sense of adventure.
3) Step back and watch as the magic occurs.
After checking out these windows, I’m starting to think that calling a Girl Scout for just about any creative lapse may be a very good idea. I love the sense of freshness and the crispness that these fall windows offer. And I love that they were made by lovely girls who really know how to capture the zest of fall.
To make sure folks could view a myriad of photos of this creative collaboration, Anthropologie posted them all over their Facebook page, making the pics ultra-accessible to their customer base. I absolutely love it when retailers allows us to engage with them beyond sales and online ordering via social media.
What’s your take on these stunning windows? Who will you call next time you hit a creative block? Leave your thoughts here!
