When I start on a site I normally can see how I want the site to look like in my head but usually there are pieces of the site missing. Sometimes I can see what I want the site layout to look like but I can’t see what colors I want to use. Other times I can see the colors but only part of the layout. To get ideas for my sites I often go to one of the many CSS Galleries and browse through there archives of beautifully built websites. I also like browsing through the CSS Zen Garden designs because it’s amazing to me how many different layouts and designs came from one source code.
Blogs, school, friends, and sports have all inspired me in different ways at different times in my design work. What is it that inspires you? Where do you draw your inspiration from?
I get my inspiration from my environment. I like to go out and take pictures of buildings, wildlife, etc, anything that can give me some creative ideas. I too make use of the Zen Garden and find a lot of inspiration from there.
