Top 100 Art & Design Concepts in February

From Wearable Multi-Tools to Hipster Logo Generators

— March 8, 2015 — Art & Design
If there's one word to sum up the most popular February 2015 art and design ideas, it's experimentation. From creative play with unusual objects like shoelaces and paper to the implementation of 3D printing on projects of all scales, these creations help to redefine what is thought of as familiar in terms of form and materiality.

Since some of the best ideas can come to you when you least expect them, there are a ton of tools that are popping up in order to make on-the-go creation as natural as possible. Some of these devices include wearable tools, smartphone sketching attachments or even pens that double as screwdriver sets. With the rise of modular furniture and flexible working styles, office spaces are also becoming better equipped for adaptability.
