thank you sweetie! :) I don’t really know, to be honest? I rarely plan my graphics out, most of the time I get a vague idea and I mess around and experiment until I find something I like. I’d say that everything around me inspires me somehow: ads, art, music, textures, quotes… I especially pay close attention to typography, as it’s literally everywhere and it’s accessible to everyone.
Tumblr is a great source of inspiration too, I follow a ton of graphic makers and it’s refreshing to see all those different styles, you always learn new stuff (and i keep an inspiration tag). tumblr is not the only website i use for inspiration though, and making a list of every place i visit on the internet would take me all day, but i’d recommend behance, betype, graphic porn, visual.ly, this blog, or any other graphic/design communities. deviantart is great if you know what you’re looking for (there are great minimalist posters if you like those), idem for icon makers and communities on livejournal (I don’t know many, but I often check 7days, 20inspirations and icon-talk). I’m probably forgetting a lot of them but they’re super easy to find :)
So yeah I don’t know if I’m answering your question or not but this is basically how I get inspired, I just look around, admire people and their work from afar, try to understand how they achieve things and experiment an awful lot :)
tl; dr: everything. literally everything inspires me
paatrck: hey hey i probably told you this before but you're so inspiring and i was just wondering how you get inspired to make graphics (they're amazeballs btw)
