From Stark Eyewear Galleries to Digitized Sketch Pads

— March 25, 2016 — Art & Design
Just as the arrival of spring brings about growth and renewal, many of the top March 2016 art and design ideas imagine fresh forms for familiar concepts. Some of the best examples of this include Vestige Story's use of glass jars as t-shirt packaging or the open-ended communal cooking tool called (Un)Contained.

Knowing that warm weather is soon approaching, consumers are looking for novel ideas when it comes to everything from gardening to camping and other activities that are centered around the outdoors. A few of the most intriguing ideas include Mason jar gardening kits, single-use cardboard tents and portable log fires.

With a change of seasons in the air, the most popular art and design ideas indicate that most consumers are ready to do away with the old and adopt new ways of thinking, living and doing.
