Looking at nature you can see the beautiful designs filled with colors, shapes, textures, and emotions. A lot of time, nature creates a great source of inspiration for designers to design. For instance, the colors in nature give the designer meanings to express messages and emotions to attract the viewer’s attention and eagerness to either know more or buy.

Next time you go outside, sit and admire the beautiful designs of nature and how it makes you feel. Whether it is the green grass or the blue sky, you will see how different shapes and colors make nature look beautiful and give you a peaceful mind. Designers use those colors and emotions to create designs for the same purpose.
