ok this may of been a topic before but when I searched I didn't really find much of what I wanted. So here goes.. So as you already know I'm realtivly new to the graphic design world 12 months in uni studying graphic design 3 months working for a marketing angency. I was wondering where you guys get inspiration for the work you do? Books, sites, other colleagues etc? I've been looking at the obvious places that I know of Behance / Pinterest / dribble / instagram / various books and magazines. Which has been ok but I'm sure there has to be better places to draw inspiration? Or is this it? For example; This week I had to recreate an information booklet for a local day nursery which had 16 a4 pages FULL of text. Having never creating something like this before was really difficult.. Looking for simple layout rules or guidelines and inspiration wasnt an easy task. Although I have completed it now and the boss is happy with was a relief. I'll find out mid next week if the client is happy fingers crossed The other thing I'm interested in is processes? After reading your brief do you sketch or do you just crack on digitally?
