Ever have those days where you need to come up with a creative design for a website – either your own site or a client’s – but the ideas just aren’t coming?
Here are 5 places to go for web design inspiration:
The most obvious place to start is with other websites. For that you can try…
1) awwwards – features some of the best, award-wining websites
2) webdesign-inspiration.com – the name pretty much says it all
Beyond that, you can take a step back from web design and be inspired by photography and graphic design …
3) dribbble – show and tell for Web designers, graphic designers, illustrators, icon artists, typographers, logo designers, and other creative types
4) behance – online portfolios by creative professionals across industries
Beyond that, you can step back even further and…
5) Get out – get out of your office and look at the “real world” with a fresh set of eyes. Take a camera with you and go to a place with a similar vibe to the organization you’re trying to come up with a design for… hike in a state park, walk the city streets, do some people watching at the mall. Let the world be your inspiration.
