Tips for Designing and Finding Inspiration

Blog entry by Todd A. Clippinger posted 09-14-2013 05:56 PM 3102 reads 0 times favorited 1 comment Add to Favorites Watch

With the release of my latest article in WOOD magazine on design, it prompted more requests for a video on designing and how I find inspiration.

In this video I share the lifestyle habits I have that allow me to keep finding inspiration, recording those ideas, and developing the designs. For an example, I share how I turned a Japanese torii gate into a stairwell barrier, bucking the standard design of newell posts, balusters, and handrail.

While the subject of designing can get pretty deep, and pretty ridiculous when people want to sound like an exclusive high-end artist, the things I share are simple and down to earth. I share the habits that I have in my daily life, how I look at things, and process them into a project design. This video is just chock full of gold nuggets!

I hope you find this video helpful, inspirational, and that it motivates you into action. Because in the end, it really comes down to DOING – so get out there and be creative!

A special thanks to my friends for being a part of the video.

Your friend in the shop,

Todd A. Clippinger

It was really very inspirational. I like to work on design and try to make a different one everytime. It was really amazing. Very appreciative.
