This is the “It's Obama” front page of L.A. Times newspaper reproduced on a tote bag. The bag is so popular, it's out of stock until January.

I hope when the LA Times is finally sold, every employee that gets the boot also gets this tote to carry out all the office supplies they can handle. It's cute. It's so old school, very trendy. It's a collectible item too.

Implications - This Obama newspaper bag demonstrates how an innovative product can be made from the simplest materials. Businesses should look to pre-existing products in order to find inspiration for designs, as this lowers production costs and can result in a creative commodity. Businesses would be wise to take available products and fuse them to create something new.
