Where from do you get your inspiration?
Everyday experiences. We’re visual people, so everything we see has an effect on us… a website, a billboard, a business card. We mostly get inspired by blogs like Design Work Life, Graphic Exchange, Under Consideration and websites like siteinspire.com, designspiration.com and dribbble.com.

Yes. We usually sketch out ideas first. And they always evolve into something else on the computer.
