Web Design Magazines: Where to look for inspiration?
It’s impossible not to mention Smashing Magazine — one of the most popular and respectable sources for all things web. It’s brimming with valuable articles from respectable authors and has a massive amount of resources.
A List Apart
Another respectable name, A List Apart, writes about “the design, development, and meaning of web content, with a special focus on web standards and best practices.” It’s one of the oldest such resources out there, founded in 1997 as a mailing list.
As the name implies, Creative Bloq is the best place to find inspiration and read exciting opinions. Sure, it’s not strictly about web design, but that hardly changes anything.
Inspiration is something few of us can afford. When you need to create, you usually don’t have time to find your muse. That’s when themeforest comes in handy: it features hundreds of examples of sites you can actually make — unlike more unrealistic-looking examples from Awwwards (which is still a great place to visit occasionally).
siteinspire.com is a great place to find your next great idea. It’s neat, fast, and filled to the brim with gorgeous examples.
Yet another website that has more gorgeous examples than you need, godly.website is a fantastic place to find new ideas. savee.it is another one we can recommend.
