Faster Ideas is your regular dose of creative tricks and tips, helping you discover rapid ways to find new ideas.

Blogs, discussions, reviews, interviews and videos featuring creative thinkers - from all walks of life.


Increasingly, time and budgets are being squeezed in most industries.

Clients want more for less - and that means we have to think of at least 10 award-winning, internet-breaking and digital-first ideas before we've even had our first cup of coffee.

There are many books, webinars, videos, courses, podcasts and oodles of other great content out there about creativity, creative thinking, or being creative in business. But they are often industry-specific, wordy and not particularly digestible when you're on a deadline. 


Faster Ideas is here to bring you creative inspiration whenever you're in need of a boost.

If you're stuck in a rut for ideas, you'll find weekday inspiration in our email newsletter, or right here at

Some of the tips and tricks might be familiar to you - but you never thought they could apply to your particular industry.


Some might seem banal or silly - but there’s a method to the madness.


Some might require more thinking than you expected - but will always be easy to follow.


There may also be jokes and random references. Just because.


NB. Faster Ideas takes no responsibility for the greatness of your ideas.
