Portrait of Ferdinand Vogler

Everything has been done before. But where is that fine line between getting inspiration, copying, and downright stealing? Our guest today is Ferdinand Vogler, a product designer who specializes in digital experiences. We discuss the ethical side of repurposing design ideas, how copying can help designers master their craft, and why you shouldn’t be afraid of repeating yourself in your own work.
