Inspiring Designers: a sourcebook provides an insight into the minds of 18 of the world's most distinguished designers working today. The book comprehensively explores what makes these designers critically and commercially successful. Moreover, it poses the question: do designers possess a special something in their genetic make up-'cultural DNA'-that makes them flourish in the contemporary design world? Inspiring Designers presents personal narratives of each designer's cultural development, providing a comprehensive overview of the iconic influences used in today's design practice. Each designer has been interviewed about their influences and sources of inspiration - buildings, products, films, artists, books, cars, music, magazines, people. As such the book provides a unique and accessible introduction to how inspiration works within and informs our modern world.
