Get Inspired: Websites to Spark Your Creativity
Let’s take a minute to discuss websites you can use for creative inspiration.
Ok y’all, I know I’m sending this late in the day, but it’s been a crazy week as the producer and casting director for a video shoot in virtual worlds (long story).
We’re here now though! Let’s take a minute to learn about websites you can use to find creative inspiration online.
So what happens when you get stuck in a creative rut? It can take a lot of work to generate new ideas on the go, so I’m all for finding inspiration to make the process easier.
I believe you can find inspiration anywhere. From billboards, magazine articles, and even supermarket ads, I’m always taking photos of things to save for later.
However, when it comes to online inspiration, specifically for web design, here are 3 sites I visit to spark my creativity.
Lapa Ninja is a gallery featuring the best landing page examples, free books for designers, and free UI kits from around the web. Many people also use Lapa Ninja to find inspiration, learn, and improve their design skills
Siteinspire.com highlights the best in web design from around the world, with a range of styles and industries. If you’re looking for inspiration for your project, this site is easy to search and navigate.
With Land-book, you can find the best hand-picked website design inspiration. The site curates a web design gallery for creatives that’s updated daily. Want to be inspired and motivated to create? Land-book has what you need.
Even if you’re not building a website, there’s an opportunity to think outside the box by pulling elements from these examples for your projects, graphics, etc.
Think of a website as a large canvas filled with multiple design and copy elements that tell a story and meet a goal. Break that story down for your benefit and get to work. Woot!
Creative Challenge for the K.I.M. Community: Find one of your favorite web examples and screenshot 2-3 things you want to use or save for your project. It can be a font, color scheme, visual, or whatever catches your eye. If you’re up to it, tag or DM me on Twitter/IG (@allthatiskim) to share what you found!
