Following Mark’s previous post on new research into the foods and music that are most conducive to creativity, there was a suggestion in the comments that it would be interesting to find out what designers and creatives currently do. So go on then, tell us…

We want to know the following vital information:

What kind of biscuits/snacks do you have in meetings?

Which foods do you turn to when you need a lift?

Tea or coffee? What kind?

Do you have music in the studio/creative department?

If so, what’s on your current playlist?

Are there any music genres that are banned from the studio/creative department?

On a scale of 1 to 11, how loud is the music?

As you get closer to deadline does the music go up or down?

We need your help to conduct this important piece of research, so please add your contributions in the comments below. Special prize to the first killjoy to harumph along the lines of “haven’t you got anything more serious to think about” etc etc
