Where do you go for ideas?

    I thought I'd start a thread to share good sites to go to for examples of good design and ideas.


    I like to go to http://cssvault.com

    When I last time redesigned my directory I asked a little help and Jumpen draw www.cssremix.com to my attention. That is also a great resource such as cssvault.

    I usually just browse the internet and look around. I pick out a template that looks very nice and then I just redesign it. For some reason I always find something that does not work for me even in the most flexible designs out there. My site's never turn out to be the best in design, but they are the easiest to edit. anyway, here are some places I like to look at first:
    Template world, Free css templates, CSS remix

    I google similar websites in my own country - and abroad. I make a note of the best ones but do NOT do exact copies. Instead, the other websites just set my mind working and I always then create a compeltely unique site for the customer.

    I also keep an eye on magazines, newspaper adverts etc - some of these have good design ideas that can be transferred effectively to websites.

    In designing a web, ideas are important and its depends on your clients wanted to happen and see in their site. However, if you do just for your self i think you should follow your heart and things that makes you inspired in able to see the beautiful outcome of your work.

    FORUMS is the best way to go to ideas. You can have plenty of idea from forums.

    If I like something I always take screenshots of the parts of the pages, or whole websites while surfing around. Sometimes I copy background images and store them. When I need inspiration I digg the folder where I store them.
