The inspiration vs immitation has always been a point of discission in design world. When we have a look at some already existing work and get the idea to further develop and implement is it inspiration or immitation? When we need to deliver the spirit of time and design something pretty close to that time and style is it inspiration or immitation? When things look almost identical is it inspiration, innovation or a rip off?
A recently mentioned and popular Audi Russia calendar contains a page which is almost identical to an old poster of Bohn... So, is it inspiration, immitation or just a rip off? What do you think?
