Volume 25: Unblock Your Creative Mind

January 2013


Unblock Your Creative Mind

ENVIRONMENT Papers unBlocks

Enter the creative wild, where your imagination knows no bounds. Introducing Creative (un)Blocks from Neenah Paper in partnership with Josh Chen, principal and creative director of Chen Design Associates in San Francisco. Since 1992, ENVIRONMENT® Papers have been removing the roadblocks to environmentally responsible printing. The new ENVIRONMENT Papers promotion is filled with one-of-a-kind print samples specifically designed to help you get past the occasional creative block.

Creative (un)Blocks is a collection of original artwork bound together that breaks apart into four individual books, each representing the various mindsets of the creative process:

  • Study: Researching the who, what, where, when and why of a project
  • Play: The name of the game is fun, and rules need not apply
  • Connect: Communicating with others in new ways
  • Make: Turning your idea into something awesome

To get your copy contact your local Neenah Paper merchant or Neenah Paper Sales representative for a sample.
