Inspiration is all around us.
Looking back enables us to learn from the past and then to look forward. It's true that nothing is ever really new. It's the combination of past and present that creates the future.
Throughout history great artists and innovators all over the world have been inspired by combinations of the now, what was and what could be.
Whenever I hit a blank wall in the design process I stop, look around and look back. Research and reinterpretation are the key fuels for the future.
Open your mind and embrace the past. Allow it to fuel your future.
