We’d love to get your suggestions for new TDC assignments! Here are a few basic guidelines to help you create a great one:
- Make it the right length. In part because each assignment will be tweeted and is thus limited to ~120 characters, and partly because attention spans are short, aim to make the assignment short and sweet.
- Consider global audiences with different technical backgrounds. Not everyone participating will celebrate the same national holidays or be comfortable editing in Final Cut Pro.
- Make it quick. The goal of The Daily Create is to remove the frictions of creating art and being creative. Make sure the assignment can easily be completed in 20 minutes or less to encourage people to participate.
- Rules and contraints are OK! While this might not seem very progressive, constraints actually help people be more creative.
