Here at Zemoga, we appreciate great design. We’re inspired by everything around us–the colors, shapes, and textures that invigorate our senses. Great design has a power that goes beyond just looks; it elicits a deep, visceral emotion that motivates us to imagine and to create.
Great design is a call to action, and Zemoga strives to achieve this for our clients. It’s no wonder we’re always scouring the Internet for examples of great design to help us avoid those creative slumps. Sometimes, we stumble upon something that ‘s inexplicably beautiful, but hard to tell what exactly it does. Well, we’ve collected those things, and now propose the following challenge: can you identify the items below? The answers are at the bottom so you can post your score as a reply. No cheating!
