What is the Difference Between Copyright and Inspiration
29th November, 2011 by Sarah Stephenson
I have been commissioned to design a poster for a business and was inspired by another designer and his work. I was wondering whether borrowing or being inspired by another person’s work counts as being Copyright or Inspiration?
I have had always been inspired by others, whether it’s graphic designers, artists, family or friends. It get's me really confused whether I'm doing the wrong thing by being inspired by someone else?
