Great Designers Steal by Jeff Veen

If you're one of those people who has ever wondered what Picasso meant by the phrase “Good artists copy, Great artists steal,” check out this video. Designer Jeff Veen explains that it's not about copying someone else's idea, but instead, it's about looking for elegant solutions and intentionally taking what you need. I like how he ends with “we should steal and stand on the shoulder of giants.”
