For the lack of a better word, a portfolio with some of my works. After all, why believe someone’s advice regarding organizing creativity if this person has not managed to be creative? 😉
Writing, non-fiction (original)
Three non-fiction works — the first edition of “Organizing Creativity” (left), the second edition of “Organizing Creativity” (much better, middle), and my dissertation thesis (right, was sufficient for a magna cum laude). BTW, the photos on the covers were also done by me. Being an enthusiastic photographer is helpful in a lot of areas.
Writing, non-fiction (mashups)
Some non-fiction mashup books — “A Book of Life” (400 pages quotations book, left), and the second edition of a Hogwarts Address Book (
still unprinted printed, right, with a photo of the first edition of this address book, self-bound with a black velvet cover and metal book corners). Note that the graphics used in both books are not mine — they are from various sources (including a Harry Potter Print Studio CD that came with my printer). The books are for private use, not for sale and no copyright infringement is intended here.
Two fiction books/stories — Ainran (a 145 pages novel, printed with Lulu but not published — too personal, left), and the beginning of a fairy tale written for a very good friend when she was in a really bad relationship (right).
I love photography. The (cleverly covered ;-)) fetish photos were from guided photo shootings, the other two either from a contest (the photo of earth picture — no Photoshop here) or something I noticed in my coffee cup. You can find more of my photos on deviantART.
Two iOS apps I did program myself (and I’m a psychologist, not a computer scientist or programmer by trade) — on the left is a critical thinking tool (build according to a theory about critical thinking — which is something many programmers cannot do by themselves), on the right an visitor observation tool, a pet project.
A few gifts I did … tinker. A dreamcatcher (left), a piano made out of chocolate (middle), and a small paper lantern that glows in the dark (due to luminescent paint, right).
A few calendars I did make. Among others, a spiral bound calendar (top, middle, and lower right), a tear-off calendar (made with the serial letter function of Word and an Excel file with quotes for each day, great to count down to important dates, lower left), and post-it style time-scheduling cards (top right).
I love to do customized postcards — given the amount of ‘available’ graphics on the net and a good program (InDesign) and printer, you can create your own postcards — after all, the standard photopaper format (8 x 10″) is also the format of a postcard. Note that the images are from various sources and no copyright infringement is intended. These postcards are not for sale but strictly for private use.
