XBD Collective Managing Partner, Lee Nellis is featured in Surface Eleven's Inspiring Online Blog for January 2019.

Creativity is the brand promise of every interior design house.
In this article, Surface Eleven explore insights from leading interior designers and architects in the UAE about how they overcome creative blocks.

Lee reminds us about how your outer environment has the power to influence your inner perceptions. Putting pen to paper, movement and fresh air is definitely a recipe for creative success. He says:
“When suffering from design block, never sit still, head outside and go for a walk no matter where in the world you are. The change of environment, fresh air and movement will allow new thoughts and ideas to enter your mind.

Also instead of sitting idle staring at a screen or paper, always put pen to paper, start drawing, start writing, this begins your creative flow and gives you something to work from and continue to edit.”
