There are ideas all around you, but how to remember them all. I used to see something in a store I liked, then pull out a pen and a scrap of paper and start sketching. Well, now I’ve got a camera phone and it is great for capturing products, color schemes (results with a camera phone vary on this), phrases, etc. for borrowing design inspiration later. Ideas often pop up in unexpected places, while some stores are guaranteed to get your creative juices flowing.

Here are a few of my shots as examples:

These were taken at a Hallmark store, Penney’s, Big Lots and Steinmart. As you can see, quality isn’t important in capturing the essence of these items.
