Just a quick reminder that to be a great designer (or even a good DT IB designer) you need to be continually watching what other designers and creators are doing to gain inspiration. Watch this great video from Jeff Veen, which discusses that famous quote from Picasso who may have stolen the quote from another famous artist –
Good artists copy, great artists steal?

So here are some Kickstarter links to get you thinking of simple ingenious ideas that may inspire you –
- Cosmos is a set of magnetic wooden blocks beautifully designed for explorers of all ages. Snap. Explore. Create.
- Create your amazing design lamp starting from a flat sheet of steel. Signed by designer, sculpted by you.
- The world´s first desktop hive for edible insects : empowering you to grow a food revolution straight out of your kitchen!
- A molecular modeling kit with magnetic atoms that snap together. Make molecular models with attraction you can feel!
Remember the more you see, view and take in the better you will be able to intentionally use good ideas and designs to inform your own!
