Lucas Design Associates

Where does your design inspiration come from?
I am inspired by experiences I have every day. I pay attention to details around me. I’m always interpreting space, objects and form and thinking about what I would do differently to make something better. A design challenge is also inspiring to me. I love the process of design and the creativity it allows me to experience.

In what direction do you feel that design is moving towards in a general sense?

I feel that design is moving towards a more globally identifiable style. If you look at the work of designers around the world, they are considering similar themes and working with a client base that is aware of high-level design that is less about a particular region and more about lifestyle and globally-recognized indicators of luxury, quality, taste…etc.
