Inspiration in unlikely places

Aside from using amazing competitors’ work as inspiration, there are also other ways to spark the imagination. Magazine spreads can be great to look at, as are lists of great typography and calligraphy. Flipping through an art history book or seeing some museum exhibits can be a good experience. There are so many sources of great art and design work from many different fields.

It’s important to just keep your eyes open wherever you go. There’s great design everywhere. Makeup packages, stationery, clothing, even food wrappers – there’s an aesthetic behind everything. The basic ideas of what makes those things appealing can be adapted to web or graphic design too.
