Im curious to know, how we as designers go about making sure our work is original as possible?
What type of research do you complete in order to avoid ideas and concepts that have already been tried or used? Or avoid similarities to brands / concepts that you may never have seen?
We are all used to seeing comments on blogs and forums saying “that reminds me of this” or “that looks like this” etc.
How do we all go about dealing with this part of the process?
