Home    Inspiration    5 resources for designer’s inspiration

Being an artistic person means to be in a constant search of inspiration. When you start a new project you can’t always gush with ideas, you need some time to think it over, find some references, get any first thoughts.
Sometimes, from the side it looks like you are just procrastinating, you know, a person sitting and scrolling images…But we know what you really do, you’re trying to catch inspiration!

We prepared a list of websites, that our designers use when they need some new ideas. So, let’s start:

Behance

It may seem obvious but, there is really plenty of ideas in different spheres of design. Here you can spy other designer’s works, take something for your projects, try and change it. It helps to realise unknown before  techniques and learn something new.

Dribbble

Dribbble is more closed community but it means, that the content is more tasty, professional and extraordinary. To publish your works here, you need a special invite from other dribbbler so not every person can sign in. That is the main feature of this platform. You can follow artists, search works by tags and get really inspired here.

Envato Elements

This is the great platform not only to find ideas but also for purchasing them. On Envato Elements you can find such categories of content as: graphics, themes for websites, icons, mockups, add-ons, fonts, different templates and so on. You can subscribe and download all the content without limits.

Pinterest

Pinterest seems to be unlimited resource of inspiration. Here you can find almost everything, not only webdesign. It’s possible to search by tags, follow users or particular boards. Board is like the collection where you can pin images. You can create your own mood boards by themes and leave some ideas for the future works.

Awwards

This is the website of the global web design award.

Sort works by rating, themes, design and go ahead! Watch for nominations and winners – website of the day, month and year…

So when you feel lack of inspiration, or can not find some ideas for the projects you are working on, visit some of these pages and find yourself in the designer’s paradise.

Please leave the comments and share your own way of getting inspired!
