Creative Findings

I’ve always talked about staying creative and finding inspiration every where you go. One way is to utilize books. Two great books I’ve mentioned in the past are: “Caffeine for the Creative Team” and “Caffeine for the Creative Mind,” by Stefan Mumaw and Wendy Lee Oldfield. Another way to get yourself into the creative zone is to review what other people have done. Perhaps it will spark an idea for new packaging, business card, or even a strategic marketing plan. There many wonderful websites out there that share all sorts of creativity and as much as I want you to stay on our site I’m going to share a few of my favorite go-to places with you today.
Bench.li – Wonderful clean simple design inspiration. This site seems to have a heavy interest in print – one of my favorites.
DesignInspiration – Another great place for design.
The Dieline – Design examples for all sorts of products.
The Inspiration Room – Creativity from around the world, there always seems to be a lot of videos here.
The Story of Telling – Even reading a Creative’s blog helps to loosen up those creative oils.
Finding inspiration every where we go helps us learn and grow, and I personally try to look for it every single day. Inspiration can come in big and small packages, you just have to know where to find it. Go – be creative, and share with us what you come across.
