some of my favorite inspirational resources
by Pho3nixSun / March 5, 2015 2:42 AM PST

I like to look at some other work and get inspired, then sleep on the project and come back to it with a fresh outlook. If that doesn't work then brainstorming and just going back to old school pencil and paper. Usually between outside inspiration, brainstorming and giving my subconscious a chance to dwell on the input help me come up with some good ideas.

Some of my favorite inspirational sites:
http://adsoftheworld.com/
http://www.commarts.com/creative
http://abduzeedo.com/tags/inspiration
http://1stimpressions.com/portfolio/
https://www.behance.net/
https://www.pinterest.com/
http://www.creativebloq.com/inspiration/print-ads-1233780


I could keep going. Really hope it helps, I know how crappy creative block can be. My favorite thing to do when I hit a creative wall is take my dog for a walk, have a cup of coffee, or just start sketching.
