free idea #4

Posted on by tyler galloway

"anti-designspiration" a visual inspiration site for everything non-trendy, shitty looking, real-authentic (not faux-thentic), actually informational, punk rock, diy, workhorse-genius, 3rd world, desperate, cheap-ass, and possibly stupidly-risky.

does this already exist and perhaps i just don't know about it? 

this idea is free to use, co-opt, or otherwise exploit. let me know if you want to discuss further or contact me if you use it.
