It’s a philosophy that serves as a lifeline for us, and one of the results of this lifeline is the YD x KeyShot Inspiration Hub! The Inspiration Hub is our ‘ever-expanding encyclopedia’ of design work for you to participate in, to inspire designers, and to get inspired by. Created in collaboration with KeyShot, the Inspiration Hub is your one-stop space for inspiration where designers like you can submit your impressive designs and be awarded to stand out in the crowd and to inspire other like-minded designers.

To kickstart your journey and send some motivation your way, we’ve curated some of our favorite mouse + keyboard designs from the Inspiration Hub.

1. Dag’s Mouse

Created by Betul Dag, this sleek + good-looking mouse looks like a conch shell! It features an inner shell that was pretty hard to design and an external surface marked with grooves and ridges that give the mouse a unique and stunning appearance. It’s the kind of mouse that would add an extra oomph factor to any desk it is placed upon. I would love to see this mouse as an actual tangible product.

2. Create

Designed by Naya, Create is the kind of keyboard that will ensure you don’t need any other additional peripherals! It is highly customizable to perfectly cater to every person’s individual self-expression. It eliminates the issue of a cluttered desk, which can often occur when you constantly need to switch between different peripherals.

3. The Logitech Signature Series

The Logitech Signature Series is a family of sleek and innovative mice created by Benjamin Ehrenberg to simplify the mid-range with one substantial and significant experience. The collection includes six different mice with a contoured shape, soft thumb, area, and rubber side drops designed to provide you with the perfect grip, allowing your hand to always be snugly fitted in place. You can pick the perfectly sized mouse for your hands, with the right amount of buttons and features you need for your daily work.


Designed by Haechan Ryu, this mini keyboard is called the MLNW. It is an adorable little keyboard with a heart icon, and is inspired by the anti-war slogan of the 1960s hippies – “make love, not war”. The mini keyboard can only input a heart icon and is a symbol of spreading love on the internet, rather than using our keyboards to spread hate and negative comments online.

5. Gima Mouse Concept

Designed by Hizin, the Gima mouse concept is quite an interesting and whimsical one. The typical mouse buttons on the mouse are placed by keyboard keys! Actual mechanical keyboard switches have been placed beneath the keycaps, which you can mix and match with any spares that you may have lying around at home. The mouse attempts to offer the same level of customization and flexibility that mechanical keyboards offer.
