Our expert panel will delve in to the topic of Creativity; as a small taster we asked each panellist 4 short questions about what creativity means to them.  Here we enjoy Scott Barwick’s answers:

What inspires your work?
Any creative person will tell you that they absorb inspiration from almost anything, you just pick things up that you see, read or experience around you.

Where do you go for inspiration?
No where in particular. The best moments of inspiration usually happen when you least expect it.

When are you most creative?
Sometimes I come into the studio before work, this is the most productive and creative part of my day. A silent studio without any distractions, complete concentration and focus.

What does creativity look like to you?
A team of people in a design workshop, firing ideas onto post it notes.

How would you answer these questions?  We would love to hear your opinions of creativity in our comments section below or on twitter @DesignInsider1
