Designer’s envy. We’ve all had it. Even non-designers get it. It’s that feeling you get when you see something so brilliant or so simple that it is just plain genius that you wish you had thought of it. Or maybe it’s just a beautiful design that is completely out of your comfort zone, and you’re so jealous that you can’t do that.
As a designer, seeing another designer’s excellent work is both good and bad – but either way, it’s motivating.
