Creative minds need feeding. We need to be surrounded by things around us that provoke thought, stir interest, make us question things. Designers keep up to date with design news not just because it interests them but because it opens their mind to new options and possibilities.
People should be influencing each other by bouncing to and fro with ideas. We know this all too well in our design team when we bounce off each others creative ideas when brainstorming
We are always inspired by what we see around us. Drawing together our professional experience in design and our interesting chinese surroundings we always have a fresh take on things.
