What's your most unusual source of influence or inspiration?

For example, current fringe economic theory is something that shapes a lot of my product design thinking at the moment. How about you?


  • My best ideas/inspiration comes to me when I am hanging out with 5-year-olds. They are inquisitive and come up with solutions on their own, which initially do not make sense but after leaving them I am like ....huh...could work!
  • Weirdly the least creative person I know.

    My sport obsessed twin brother. He has ZERO creativity unless it involves F1, Basketball or during his daily work as a PT. Every couple of years or so, he shows me or says something that sparks something new in my head

    I force him to repeat what he says so I can note it down!

    This year he's been a very unexpected source of ideas to the point I've consulted with him on some designs and they were actually brilliant and out of the box - sometimes I REALLY wonder if he's just messing me around or being serious.
