Innovation Leads the World

“Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.”- Steve Jobs

As a designer, I love creating things to make people a better life. I also enjoy collecting awesome designs as my “side job”. During the years, I’ve been seeing many great designs – from a lovely wedding invitation to a grand architecture – they are just innovative + brilliant!

Here are some of my favorites, ready for WOWs?

The Hand Guard is a protective silicon cover for your hands when you’re cooking, especially for French fries.

    Too bad this tree toaster probably wouldn’t pass safety regulations here… too cute. And the mugs are just swanky!
