How do you do that crazy design thing you do?

A few days ago my brother (a network guy turned graphics and video production guy) asked me how I designed stuff.  How do I come up with concepts and ideas.  Wow, what a tough question.  It is hard to verbalize and wrap a process around something like that. Especially for designers in my position where you generally work alone on designs… there is no great ad agency pow-wow session with white boarding.

Just a day later Molly posted about this exact topic and listed some good resources. Plus she and Eric Meyer are doing a session at the User Interface 10 Conference. Check out her post.
