Inspiration is easy to come by. There are a lot of sites that have inspiration, from illustration to logos to websites; you know you can get your fix for free. Here are the best inspiration sites. Enjoy!
Behance is an amazing site to get inspiration from. It is based on a platform that users can submit their designs and get “appreciated”. Since Behance has such a clean, attractive user interface, you get true professionals uploading their artwork. This is a site you should bookmark and visit daily!
Deviant Art – Collections
The largest art community in the world has a lot of crap for sure. But you can find some real gems in a large pile of crap; like the collections for instance. Here are some links to help you start:
No frills and no hassle is Desgin Flavr’s moto. They have the freshest art served up daily and since it’s based on a rating system you get (for the most part) unbiased great design with a flava flave!
Abduzeedo is such a great blog to get inspiration from. They have tons of daily inspiration posts and roundups. After you get inspired and your creative juices are flowin’, take a tutorial or two! Practice makes perfect!
Every weekday Creative Tempest delivers the work from the most inspiring artists. Instead of posting in a roundup fashion, they just choose an artist and feature them. I love it!
Muse is a gallery where the focus is on the Artist rather then the art. They go one step further, they interview! They really dig deep into content.
Design is Kinky
This old school site was started in 1998 and still brings the freshest links and inspiration from around the web! A must have and a daily visit.
The new comer to the block, Creattica is a gallery of great design and inspirational imagery. The best work is accepted and featured in the gallery.
This is such a rad site, similar to Creatica they showcase the best in different inspirational sections. They have strong moderation of the files they post so you will only find high quality designs here.
