About This Class

d9c3c2e1

It’s crazy. We live in an era where the grey squishy thing in our skull plays a major role in all aspects of our lives – in work, our personal lives, our decision making, in productivity, in efficacy, and especially in our creativity. Yet rarely do we give it the workout it needs. I believe everyone has the capacity to be creative, come up with brilliant ideas, think differently and have super-productive and effective days. We just need to give our number one tool a consistent daily workout!

This class explores one really fun and effective method of increasing the quality and quantity of your creations, boosting the number of ideas you come up with, and sharpening your mind to take on life’s challenges. Join the class to learn how to become a prolific creator, and take on the day with your brain in overdrive mode.

You don’t have to work in a ‘creative’ field to take the class, nor do you need to know how to draw. All you need is pen and paper, 15 minutes everyday, and the ability to have fun and try new things.

Very nice class!

Very well presented in its simplicity and entertaining to watch. Motivates you to get into daily drawing practice and makes you realise the importance of giving your brain a good workout to foster creativity. Simple exercises that make you come up with complex ideas you may never have thought of otherwise.
It's a fun class that encourages one to venture into the wild side of creating :)

Rich Armstrong

Product Designer

Rich's title is Product Designer but he's more of a jack-of-all-trades / generalist / unicorn. He designs, animates and codes. He's studied multimedia design and graphic design, and is a self-taught programmer. He's freelanced, worked for agencies and startups, and now runs Studio Armstrong, an Amsterdam-based creation company, with his wife. He also doodles all the time, has super ginger-powers and can touch his nose with his tongue!

He spends most of his working day researching and experimenting, much like his hero, Lucius Fox, does. Rich likes to think he's a minimalist, but he's fooling himself – he's as messy and unorganised as the any other creative genius.


Rich has been teaching online classes on Skillshare since late 2015 – and he likes it a lot :) He's since created the weirdly named Tap Tap Kaboom brand that showcases his experiments, designs and classes. Follow him on Dribbble, Instagram, Ello and YouTube. He also has a newsletter type thing that you can subscribe to.
