Just as the new design students in the first year drawing class have been asked to share where they find inspiration, I thought I would share a few sources of inspiration that I have used while designing over the years. I have always been inspired by those people around me, whether they are classmates, fellow designers, faculty, or artists. I am inspired by the motivation to continually raise the bar and adopt new skills and techniques exhibited by my community.
I am also inspired by the shear joy that design has brought and will continue to bring to people. I love to find a design or environment that instantly brings a smile to my face and encourages me to explore. These are traits similarly found in nature, which makes in so surprise that many designers are inspired by nature.
