The Trampoline Theory

Southern Accents is not just a business. We are a team of creatives. Although we all stem from different backgrounds and possess different talents, one common thread that we all share is that we are passionate about the creative process of every project that we tackle. Each time we are asked to create something, be it a staged area or backdrop for an event, decor for a new restaurant, a unique piece of furniture, or any number of other projects we have been asked to take on, we approach each new project with what we call "the trampoline theory". We believe that for the most part, a single idea fashioned by one individual, on their own, is usually neither unique or the final outcome. However, when an idea is taken and bounced around among others who are creatively like minded, the idea begins to grow and develop. As new ideas are introduced and slowly merge with the original, the idea grows higher. Some parts may fall to the side while others will take shape and start to soar. There are times when we have to "get off the trampoline" and let the idea rest. Once the idea is brought back to the table, it is generally with a renewed vigor that results in a triple back flip of success!!

Our most recent example of our creative process is the stage backdrop that we created for Southern Makers 2016. Originally Garlan had a totally different idea for this years backdrop. As he began bouncing his ideas back and forth among the team, his original idea began to grow and eventually evolved into the very cool backdrop that you see in the photo above.

Surrounding yourself with like minded creatives, even if they do not practice the same field of art, is essential. Being in the company of other makers of all genres fuels our own creativity and provides the support and encouragement that is often needed. No matter what your creative passion; food, gardening, woodworking, painting, photography, etc., surround yourself with others who are passionate about their art and go #createsomething!
