Step 1: Greycells - the workers

Picture of Greycells - the workers
Theese are my greycells - they do all the work at the idea factory (est.1983)

They have great working conditions
full coverage health care and dental benefit.
paid vacation

and a cafeteria full with cupcakes and other good stuff!



Step 2: Brainstorming - idea development

Picture of Brainstorming - idea development
An idea is born!

round the oval table are the most creative greycells in the factory sitting on padded red chairs.
They are called brainstormers and they usually work best at night - before my body falls asleep.

They're
bouncing ideas around
drawing fancy things on the whiteboard






Step 3: Market research

Picture of market research
Some greycells do the market research for the brainstormers idea.
They try to find an answer to the following questions:

Do i need that?
Does the world need that?

If they answer one of the questions with a yes
the idea is passed over to the finaces and resource department

Step 4: Finance and resource department

Picture of finance and resource department
The staff of this department are typical accountants - they're cheap :D

They make sure that I'm not ending up broke after the project is finished and do exactly know all materials in the factorys stock.

If they're pleased with the idea they pass it fearfully to the HEADMASTER GREYCELL

Step 5: Lounge and cafeteria

Picture of Lounge and cafeteria
The Brainstormers usually wait for the decision in the factorys Lounge or cafeteria.

nice atmosphere
Good coffee and tea
finest cupcakes in town
and comfortable couches

Step 6: Headquarter

Picture of Headquarter
fancy art - shiney shoes - cigarrs on the mahoganydesk (certificated wood!)  -
comfortable leather chair-
smells like the office of the headmaster Greycell.

He decides if the project gets green light or if i'ts headed to the archives.

Step 7: The idea archiv

Picture of the idea archiv
if the headmaster Greycell dumpes an idea it's getting stored in the idea-archive.

The ideas are sorted in neat boxes and maybe used in the future - or forgotten like the blue bunny.

Step 8: Lazydog

Picture of Lazydog
Now the maybe most important step is to entertain LAZYDOG!
If i don't do that, my body may decide to stay on the couch or in bed all day long :D

means: if the dog is Lazy - my body is it too.

I have to trick him with treats, toys or the hard way with drugs!
Of course he doesn't get speed but maybe caffeine.

If the dog's entertained we can proceed the production *finally*




Step 9: Production

Picture of production
Now the production office sends signals down the spine and my body moves and my hands begin to work.

skrewes get skrewd
nails get hammered
the magic happens!

Step 10: Factory cinema

Picture of factory cinema
the greycells can now enjoy the production process live in the factory cinema .

sometimes the crowd LOL cause of hammer-hits-thumb incidents

and watch the happy ending of an finished idea.


Step 11: Some products the factory made
