When I started as a “professional” graphic & web designer in 2007, I perused galleries all over the place for inspiration, wondering what it took to make it onto these sites. I assumed these had to be well-known designers with an amazingly deep understanding of development, compliant coding, or were born with endless amounts of creative ideas. I’m not saying they aren’t those people, but it’s not all of them. I know this, because I’ve recently found myself surprisingly amongst them.
Well it’s that time of year again, the time when every web design blogger puts together a list of the trends from 2011. I honestly got close to doing that myself. But I’m still one of those designers who goes out and looks for the posts ABOUT the past and future trends, so I’ll spare everyone from just reiterating someone else’s post. Instead I’ll share some pretty darn cool, adventurous, clean, inspiring websites I’ve seen and personally enjoyed over the last year.
I’ve been researching A LOT of logos lately for inspiration, trying to come up with something abstract for two different clients. So I figured, why not share some of the more creative or eye catching ones I’ve found in case someone else is looking for some inspiration too. Some may be just student work, but they’re creative nonetheless. Enjoy! 🙂
