Oooh, Nice Design!

As a web designer, some of my best inspiration comes from other creative disciplines.

The BMW Gina is a concept vehicle that is a creative tour-de-force in its rethinking of the materials that go into the skin of a vehicle. In this case, a taut fabric covers engine and frame in much the way that skin covers sinew. The automotive "skin" literally ripples with activity, with seamless doors and headlights that appear under "eyelids" that appear to blink. It may never see the light of day, but is, nonetheless, a fascinating testament to creativity! Get the full story here.
