About five years ago, I posted a page that designed Tokyo landmarks and arranged them in a grid pattern, but when I passed through a MUJI store, I was stunned to see a tote bag with a similar design.
I feel that it has been stolen, but I can't claim it because it's a common style, So I want to compete in terms of design, but I can't do that either.
This is because people choose products by brand name rather than by such design differences.
I choose what is designed ... but I don't care about subtle differences because the design has a similar direction ... I don't know if the design is good or bad.
The problem is that when this happens, designers shift from designing well to getting them to spend it for money.
Designers want just joining a big company and getting a big job...
