The four-star boutique New Hotel Roblin in Paris use the concept for the . . . → Read More: Design idea from the New Hotel Roblin, Paris

Banana Republic’s May-June 2009 Promo

One of the activities that I’ve engaged my instructional designers and developers is to look around them in their daily activities and see if there is anything they may have seen that can be translated into what they do at work.
