It’s easier said than done though. As designers we can fall into creative block, repeating the same style, grid and layout time after time. That’s why on a daily basis I make it my business to see what the very best are creating.
For me it goes beyond inspiration. I spot emerging design trends and find new technology all the time. It helps me offer new creative solutions to our clients and there is not a week that goes by where I do not learn something new. Working in a creative digital agency that is constantly pushing, these resources are invaluable.
If you are a web designer I’m sure you’ve heard of Awwwards. If not, where have you been?!?It’s one of the most recognised websites within our industry that showcases the most creative and innovative sites across the globe. Browsing through winners and various categories is a sure thing to get your creative mind inspired. It’s also not a bad idea to upload your own work. When appropriate, Bigger Picture submits their website creations to be judged by the public and jury. Check out our Awwwards portfolio. We’re not short of honourable mentions and mobile excellence awards. We’ve even won a few mobile sites of the week and our project for Access IS was nominated for mobile site of the year. We must be doing something right.
