In the dictionary, the definition of creative is having the ability or power to create. And I think that creatvie must can attract everyone's sight. If other have almost the same thing, but you got the different thing, others must want to see your product, but not others.
Like the picture be shown on the left, it's a sofa. But it looks like a product made of building blocks right? It's its difference from other sofa.
If there are two sofa, one is how the picture in the left be shown. And another one is the picture in the bottom be shown, which one would you like to buy? Or want to sit on it?
I thought most of people will say: " Of course the one beside. " But WHY? Why people all want to choose the one beside? Yes, it's very creative. It's full of colors, and it's shape is infrequentbe used to make a sofa. It's the influence of creative!
So, everyone should be creative, but not make the thing which everybody else made, try to be creative, got your own style!
