The hardest part of any design project is getting started. It can be overwhelming thinking about the task ahead, the challenges that need solutions, the people that will be affected, and all the details that will need to be outlined. These are the moments when it is good to take a step back to find some clarity. Every project needs a direction. Let your inspiration become the focus.
But, how do we find inspiration? And, where does it come from? From reading a book to walking on the beach, designers find inspiration in everything they do. Every moment is a chance to learn from our environment and apply these learnings to the design challenge at hand. Keep your eyes (and your mind) open, and look for those things that peak your interest and draw your attention. You never know what you might see.
