I love checking out other people’s creative ideas and always manage to find inspiration from them. I follow a lot of blogs, but I thought I’d share a few of my favourite creative ones.
Who doesn’t love looking at wonderful places and spaces? Architizer keeps me happy with a huge range of different buildings, designs and ideas. They always have great photography too. The website isn’t the best design for viewing as a content stream but in your rss reader it’s brilliant.
This is a collection of infographics – showing off all the ways of presenting data visually. In addition to the great-looking graphics, the range of information presented in them makes for fun reading in itself.
Photojojo are a photography shop – and that side of their site is well worth checking out for quirky accessories you never knew you needed – but they also blog about everything from the latest lenses to a new way to frame your portraits. Check out their new sister site, We Love Phonography, too.
This is more interior-design focused, but is great for pondering how your next workspace is going to look, or the dream living room you’ll be hanging out in after work.
Product design at its finest, this blog includes cutting edge products and some lovely concept work.
Pinterest isn’t technically a blog, it’s a social network which allows you to curate your own virtual pinboards. It’s still invite-only (but shout if you want one) but has very quickly become a home of creative people, and people who like creative things. Crafters, designers, typography geeks, architecture fans and an insane number of brides-to-be share images of things they love, things they want and things they’d like to make. A well-honed search function can lead you to the right people to follow very quickly and you’ll soon find it’s 3am and you can’t bring yourself to log out.
