Jeremy Garner, Executive Creative Director at Hiveworks, gives his four 'non rules' for coming up with ideas.

Be wary of anyone who tells you there’s a specific structure that you should adhere to when you are thinking up ideas. You should stick to whatever works for you, and you’ll soon get a feel for what helps you devise the best, most powerful stuff.

So here they are: the four non rules of concepting that I encourage you to ignore in favour of your own non rules.
