Strategies include improvisation techniques, changing the scenery, finding hidden links, looking to nature for inspiration, combining unusual systems, challenging set boundaries and many more. Each strategy is packed with great examples of successful contemporary and historical designs – from a designer dress made out of old converse trainers to ticket machines powered by recycled bottles in China, via the reimagining of famous brand logos and mis-use of photocopiers.
