Creativity is about 'showing imagination and originality of thought in moving beyond everyday thinking.' (Fillis and Rentschler, 2012, pp.51)
Reed Ingram Weir is a successful young creative entrepreneur in hot pursuit of 'original'.
His businesses 'Ingram Sounds' and 'Reed Ingram Weir Photography' enable his pursuit and in turn his resulting 'originality' enables the continued success of his businesses.
The interview with Reed was conducted by myself and fellow ABC students; Laura, Bex and Katy. We decided to present the key concept of 'originality' as a puzzle which we themed around the emblems of the Muses of literature and the arts in Greek mythology. We also designed each one so that we could spell out 'original' at the end.
