Inspiration – part 2

Inspired Design by Red Bridge Studio

After reaching out to designers and asking about design inspiration, I was overwhelmed with creative replies. Some expected and many very surprising. We often seem to find inspiration in nature, in trade publications and even in our clients or our own immediate environment and all are very valid. But now I wonder if maybe there are sources of inspiration that surround us every day, that we never even notice. So I will venture further and dig deeper to find inspiration in everyday items , or better yet, I’ll let Tyshawn Henry of Red Bridge Studios do the talking…visually of course.

A collection of Tyshawn’s work…from dandelions in Brugges
to chairs in Brussels and from boots in Cologne to cheese in
Paris … where else?

The inspiration………..

…and the creative interpretation

He found these chairs sitting on a side street in Brussels and
use them to inspire the rather Warholesque design below.

And the boots? I love the boots, I don’t care
about inspiration anymore, where do I get the
boots ??????? Actually Tyshawn found them
in Cologne in a store called Chang 13, but
who has the time? Can someone call Zappos?

…and finally…

….the “piece de resistance” or rather the
“piece de fromage”, cheese in Paris.

Well done Tyshawn. I would like to show more but I really
have to go find those boots now. If anyone wants to see more,
