My answers to the questions -
What single exempt of design inspires you most? I have never really thought about this questions in a practical way I guess many things that have to do with graphics and advertising inspire me but i would say the design of nature and the trees and floral things that help create a cleaner environment - I also think that we can design off of the complexity yet simplicity of nature and the things that we are given around us.
What problem should design solve next? I think design should help solve the small supply of food and water and medicine for the third-world countries I think there should be a industrial design firm who could come up with something that would make food and water last longer without going bad or clean up cities and streets for the health of people
