Inspiration comes from all vantage points in life. Lately mine have been pulled from interiors, when buying a new car or house you seem to notice details about others even more. Music is always a strong influence while working, not necessarily in the actual elements of the design. The automotive industry and future concepts in transportation design. Bicycles and the bike industry although unchanged in the greater details for almost 100 years is always fun to follow and draw inspiration from - more and more people are drawing towards self-propelled transportation and the products we use will only get better and more intuitive. Nature, flowers and color drawn from nature have always been a big one, the curves that can be seen on close up shots of flowers and tree's only accentuates the curves found on the human body - something I've always admired. Artists like Shepard Fairy, Alphonse Mucha, Santiago Calatrava, Brooks Stevens, Scott Robertson, street art, IKEA, streamlined architecture & natural/sustainable living spaces. The question is...What inspires you?
