Who and what inspires you?

Great design inspires me…  when you purchase a new product and realise that everything has been truly considered, giving you an honest user experience that starts immediately from the packaging into the unboxing and then use of the product. It’s the little intuitive nuances in the design that makes me smile and think ‘wow, love that’.
