Travelling and Design Inspiration

Posted by on Aug 5, 2014 in City Love, Design | No Comments
For someone who travels as I often I do these days, I really got off to a slow start. I got on my first plane when I was 25. For the past two years, I have been taking regular trips to other countries and I have found in incredibly valuable to my work as a designer. The southern province of Oaxaca in Mexico inspired me to use brighter colours, visiting the Pompidou museum of modern art in Paris exploded so many new ideas, same for the Stedelijk museum in Amsterdam, and basically every corner of Berlin there is incredibly thoughtful art from both inside (museums, galleries, architecture) and out (Berlin is home to some of the greatest mural and street art).

Every time I come home from a trip, I have so many new ideas. Even though my travelling is a deeply personal experience, in the end it does really affect my work in the best possible way. I’m grateful every time I get to see a new place and observe a different experience.
