What is the best way to design to uniqueness? How do we undo all the trends that take place in our minds?
sounds straightforward, but ill go to the bedroom or living room with no sounds and start doodling and evolve the sketch from there
I feel if you're by a computer you'll be too tempted to hunt for inspiration or design ideas

remove yourself from society until you start thinking different? May take a day, may take month.
good Q. Personally I think it has to do with letting trends motivate and inspire instead of dictate and direct.
Create inspiration from anywhere other than the medium you are designing for.
In short, a "doddle" is short/simple/unique, and keep drawing til its final. Yes, kind of confusing, bahhh
No internet snooping every time I have something to do. pen, paper as a starting place. You'll never see a "banner" logo out of me
If I told you it wouldn't be unique anymore ; )
Run a mile in any direction from dribbble. :P
Well I will tell you guys something. You both motivate and inspire me to be a better designer. Thanks!
you are too generous my friend. And thanks.
I am not generous, I am always matter of factual. It is a fact that since I met you I have strived to expand my abilities. Truth.
I try to resist the urge to seek inspiration. The end result is usually more unique.
start at zero, design the extreme examples, find new middle ground.
Live on a far off island for a year, then get your gear back and just create out of your own perception of reality?
