I wouldn’t go so far as to say that all design is theft or even that most design is unoriginal and ‘borrowed’. But as a designer I know it is true that all designers draw on external references and sources for their inspiration.
So imagine how useful it would be to have an enormous archive of the very best design in the world, addressing any and every problem you could conceive of. Design that has been researched and honed again and again to the most exacting and exhaustive standards, until it could not be more perfect. A treasure chest that is absolutely free for anyone to use. No copyright, no patent, no licence fee. Not even a subscription to a fancy design magazine.
