Waiting for web design inspiration to strike can be a long, soul-sucking process (that usually involves staring at a wall and eating copious amounts of Cheetos).
If your website is in need of an extreme makeover and youâ€™re lacking ideas, put down the chips and get juiced after checking these 4 websites for design inspiration:
1.Â Dribbble.com: Web designers, typographers, and illustrators share screenshots of the projects theyâ€™re currently working on in this online community, which considers itself a â€œshow and tellâ€ for creative types.
2. DesignLicks.com:Â Nearly 20,000 websites have applied for DesignLicksâ€™ coveted â€œWebsite of the Dayâ€accolade, and only 2,870 have been chosenâ€”meaning youâ€™re only seeing (and learning from) the best of the best.
3. LittleBigDetails.com:Â The Tumblr-based site â€œis a curated collection of the finer details of design.â€ Rather than focusing on the biggest pictures, LittleBigDetails highlights often overlooked aspects of web design, like a siteâ€™s customer support pop-up message or menu icons on a navigation bar.
4. Pttrns.com: Unlike other sites that strictly focus on web design, Pttrns features mobile designs, selecting standout iPhone and iPad user interface patterns.
