Web & UX Design: What are the best sites to get inspiration from?
Where to get inspiration when you don’t have an idea for a UX design project? Book, movie, music, or maybe a trip to an art gallery? It sounds great, but you don’t always have time for it – especially when deadlines are chasing you. Below I will present you a few sources of inspiration that you should get to know before you pack up for a trip to the Bieszczady Mountains in search of inspiration.
Websites that will inspire you:
The first choice is quite obvious, because probably everyone knows Pinterest. Well, it turns out that not all of them. If you haven’t heard about this portal yet, it’s high time to log in. It is a service that can be compared to a cork board. Pins, or pins, are materials of various colors that are attached by users of this website. These can be photos, videos or GIFs. The scope of the content posted is huge. You will find various things here, starting with memes and ending with single-family house designs. Search for a topic you are interested in, and with the “pins” you find, you can easily create so-called “moodboards”. Just be careful, Pinterest is addictive – you browse at your own risk.

You surely know this website, and if you don’t know it, you’ve heard it for sure. This is a giant that was bought by Facebook in 2012 for about $ 1 billion. Although it is a social network, you can follow your favorite designers thanks to it. If you don’t have any, don’t worry, find an interesting hashtag (e.g. #design, #designinspiration, #webdesign, #ux) and follow artists, companies, agencies. Instagram will catch what you need very quickly and will offer you a lot of other options. Don’t be limited to designers and the aforementioned # hashtags. You never know what your creativity can fire up.
