During my presentation at WordCamp Hawaii last month, I showed a handful of web sites that I look to for design inspiration. I thought most of the examples were so obvious, I actually considered taking those slides out right before the presentation. But to my surprised most of the audience admitted to never seeing them before.
Anyway, this experience started me thinking… what’s obvious to me, may not be for someone else. So with that in mind, I’m starting a weekly series to show off stuff that inspires me. Even though I’m hoping to highlight more than just web sites, in this first series it is a good place to start. So without further ado, here are 5 sites I visited (more than once) this week for design inspiration.
PatternTap – Makes finding inspiration for specific elements a breeze with their collections.
Colorlouvers – A site full of color… browse by trends, palettes, and even by what other sites are already using.
FFFFOUND! – The randomness of what I may find is inspiration enough.
Design*Sponge – When design websites, I don’t always look at other websites. Design*Sponge is great home eye candy.
paper crave – I don’t just do web sites… I’ve been designing holiday cards at work and paper crave shows off a variety of inspirational print pieces.
