The process of designing is obviously different for everyone, and it’s also hard to reflect on your own method. I often find myself alternating between routines and never sticking with one in particular. One of the most important things for me to remember is the resources that are available to me. I would say my three primary outlets for design inspiration are subscriptions to blogs, design websites and magazines. Whenever I find myself in a rut, I realize that I haven’t resorted to these. It’s vital to constantly reach out to others’ work in order to improve your own style and make it as versatile as possible.
My number one inspirations include:
