Every time I start a new project I need inspiration to get an idea of where to start. Obviously, there is a plethora of sites where you can find inspiration, but these are my top 5 sites for design inspiration.
Behance – Sometimes looking through other people’s work can inspire me and comparing my work will give me the jolt I need to keep working – before I leave the site I’m always like ‘yep I’ve got to step up my game.’ And I think that’s a necessary element to Graphic Design, while you’re on there you can follow all my latest work here.
Instagram – I’m not sure if everyone uses this site for this reason but I really started using this specifically for inspiration after Will Pat had mentioned it one of his videos, before that I hadn’t really thought to use it much before I saw his video. I’m almost always instantly immensely inspired by all the creativity I find on Instagram.
Designspiration – This is a site that I’ve discovered fairly recently. Designspiration is similar to Pinterest, but it’s specifically made to spark your creativity. So once you’re on that home page you’re immediately flooded with an influx of beautiful images that will definitely ignite your imagination and get you well on your way to creating beautiful designs. You can curate the images by category, and pin them to boards that you’ve created.
Inspirationgrid – This site has a great UI and it’s incredibly easily to navigate. Inspirationgrid contains an array of beautiful unique images by extremely talented designers.
Pinterest – I instinctively go to Pinterest. It’s definitely one of the first places, if not, the first place I go for inspiration. Like most people I can easily spend hours on Pinterest, so looking through different designs on Pinterest isn’t that much of stretch for me.
Speaking of Pinterest, you can follow me on Pinterest by clicking the board below.
