  • Favorite sites, blogs, etc. for inspiration and keeping"up to date"?

    Just curious what graphic design sites/blogs/etc. you guys like to look at on a regular basis for inspiration and to keep up to date on things. I have some of my own, but I am always looking for something more, and something new. Thanks!!

    I have searched for layout and design sources before, but usually find myself copying the style instead of taking inspiration from it. My main source of inspiration and keeping in touch is this forum. I read what this community of professionals posts and is capable of and it makes me want to do my job better.

    I also look at a lot of decorating blogs for color ideas and to help me step out of my comfortable little design bubble.

      I actually don't have any at the moment, but if you'd care to mention some of your own, I'd be interested in taking a look at them.

            I like good.is - especially their infographics. Mmmmm, infographics...

                      I understand that when you're new to this, it feels like you must take whatever work you can get, and swallow all the crap that comes with it. But it's actually just the opposite. This is a toxic relationship....
