Online Inspiration: Five Sites

I think it’s pretty important to look around and be inspired by what others are doing around the world. Keeping an eye on creative websites is staple diet for anyone working in Digital Comms. Everyone has their favourites but here’s some of my recommendations for you Digital geeks out there:

It’s a good un. Nice mix of digital innovation and nice brand pieces. However they are very heavy on the Google stuff lately. It’d be nice if they mixed up their content with some experiential bits and actual tech advancements.

Definitely my favourite. A great mix of digital innovation, art, brand work, advertising and humour (reflective of those in the industry). It encompasses a great array of people making things for the love of it and others working for big brands with large wallets. Great ideas here.

Another one similar to Design Taxi (in fact a lot of their content doubles up between them sometimes). They’ve some great experiential examples and installations from around the world.

Heavily focused towards e-commerce it almost becomes a ‘thisiswhyimbroke’ type site. However there are some nice Vimeo links in there too and a nice slice of US pop culture.

The artiest of the five sites DYT will give you that burst of inspiration for a design that’s lost steam, a budding creative space or the look of a photocall that will give you the edge of difference. Love this one purely for the non-commercial stuff.
