Why have you kept a reference of “Works that impacted the world of design”?

Ahoy! Here's another gem from my Pinterest explorations. Ownership? Not mine. But a keen sense of style? Definitely.

Using Pinterest, designers can effortlessly store and categorize ideas, ensuring they have a rich repository of inspiration at their fingertips.

Using reference materials, like mood boards and look books, is essential for designers to draw inspiration and conceptualize fresh ideas. Design, often underestimated, is the silent influencer that shapes our choices, preferences, and brand loyalties. Design, often the first point of interaction, plays a crucial role in shaping a potential customer's perception of a brand. A brand's identity is intricately carved, defined, and shaped by its design choices over time.
