Some of the best ideas come in the simplest way. I remember hearing how the original BlackBerry keyboard design was created by the CEO as he noticed his young son playing in his highchair. All of the elements were set up in a semi-circle. Why should a keypad be all straight, when it could be curved?
The brilliance of this idea is found in its simplicity. What about you? What problem are you struggling to find an answer to? You might be overthinking your options. Try paying attention to the inspiration that is all around you..
