Inspiration has many origins and can be somewhat unpredictable. A great designer understands their inspirational source and becomes a conduit for the creativity to flow. The skill is in taking seemingly unrelated imagery and conceiving a new visual context that inspires a body of work.

Christopher Elliott is truly passionate about great design, continuously seeking and anticipating the current global trends and forecasts. This visual diary reflects products, styles and images that both inspire and guide Christopher’s work.

Shades Of Grey

Anyone who knows me, knows I love grey! I respond to its neutrality. It is what I calibrate colours to and use as a backdrop to dramatise accent colours. I find it visually restful and although it can be drab on it’s own, in combination with bold graphic fluorescent colours, it looks refreshingly modern.
