What does it take to be creative? Maybe it’s imagination which is more important that knowledge or maybe it’s just an empty corner of the mind! While it’s often said that creativity doesn’t necessarily require knowledge, is knowledge not needed when it comes to writing or speaking? Definitely, a foundational knowledge is required. Nate Padavick, a San-Francisco based designer and illustrator eliminates creativity from knowledge through his Doodle Theory Contest.

Held from July 1 to August 10, 2016, the contest invited participation for the most creative doodles, made with just 6 simple lines, termed as squiggles by Nate. Hundreds of people across the globe allowed their creativity to sprinkle on the sheet of paper and doodled what even they didn’t expect to be drawn.
