One of the best places to find inspiration is through cultural influences. Every culture has its own aesthetic beauty, many of which are vastly different from what you may just assume to be the norm of beauty. A trip to your local library, or even doing research on the internet, will unearth a multitude of ideas. Start at the continent level and work your way down into its indigenous people. Study their art, way of life and language to discover shapes, textures, materials, and objects that influence your creativity.
