Seeking Inspiration Online is not an easy task in nowadays with all these billions of websites. As a web/graphic designer my self the only solution that works for me is one. Bookmarks, I’am struggling at least 2 times/week in order to keep my bookmarks organized and clean, thanks to safari’s great option to click and open multiple bookmarks I have created many groups and categorized them based on my needs. For example, I have one group that’s called Web Design Inspiration, another one that says Tech News. Below I am showcasing some of the best websites that you should definitely bookmark because of their creative content.
