Comments Want des Well, the primary source of my inspiration is the design brief itself. A well-defined design problem is almost like a riddle to me – I cannot stop thinking about it, so I eventually find a solution. This is why I mostly pick design contests with challenging briefs and requirements. As for the process, I typically start with researching the client’s industry trying to understand their design language and style. After, I use professional photography websites/libraries to explore some useful concepts and metaphors that convey the message the client is trying to get across.
