Theft And Inspiration: Where’s The Fine Line? -

There are two types of designers who work on their art and designs. The first category of designers simply look for the designs which are available online on any other designers’ portfolio and try to copy their work with slight modifications. That’s actually a theft of design. On the contrary, there are some designers who prefer to get creative with their designs and for this they look for inspirations from external sources. These inspirations can be from designs, real life sceneries, concepts and observations. This is one of the nicer ways of designing an artwork.

Theft And Inspiration

It’s always significant to come out with an inspired approach and the cherry on top is to give credit to the original designer who made you inspired. This increases the authenticity and integrity of a designer. Whereas, when a design is plagiarized or copied, a designer devalues himself and earns a bad reputation. To prosper in the designing field one should always be inspired and come up with creative work; and not adopt the theft of design approach.

Here are a few pointers on the distinction between theft and inspiration of designs.
