The Creative Grab Bag is a great project by Ethan Bodnar in which creatives were assigned projects that were not their specialty. The idea is to get someone out of their comfort zone and see what a creative person can do when picking up a new type of task. In my case, my assignment was to visually represent all or any of the senses. A common theme I noticed from the commentary of others is that they found it was quite difficult deciding on a solution on a project with so few restrictions.
There are a number of great designers and big names that contributed to the Creative Grab Bag, including Armin Vit and Byrony Gomez-Palacio of UnderConsideration, Debbie Millman, Paul Sahre, Michael Surtees, Carin Goldberg just to name a few. Not to mention, ID29’s Doug Bartow. Although, I think my favorite was Ryan Cox’s entry. The project drew entries from all around the world.
