What Do You Think?

I think every artist and designer can agree that inspiration is everywhere around us. It can come from anything and everything. There is good inspiration, what motivates you to want to emulate and try to achieve the same greatness. Then there is bad inspiration, what encourages you to not want to recreate and inspires you to surpass what has been made.

But is it possible to live without inspiration? Can an artist and designer create work that comes from nowhere else but their imagination? Some of the great and legendary artists and designers have made a name for themselves by their unique style and approach.

I think sometimes it is important to be lead more by your own thoughts and ideas, More Self-Creation rather than anything else. But then again how can you not be inspired by your surroundings?

    I agree,it may be great to design something that’s more “self-creation” but then there are so many elements and inspirations around us that we keep running into. Which is hard to NOT get inspired.

    I do not think it is a matter of being inspired by everything around us. I think it is a matter of taking those inspirations and transferring them in a creative way unlike anything we have ever seen before.
