It seems that a lot of you out there are total inspiration junkies. That’s cool, I am too. That’s why I’ve decided to put together a collection of some of the best inspiration posts I’ve come across on the net. Some are classics. Some are new. All are awesome.
If you ask me, you should you postpone whatever you were about to do and soak up each and every one of these links. Enjoy!
One of my favorite posts from Smashing Magazine, one of my favorite blogs. Here lies a giant collection of book cover art. As I’m not nearly as literate as I pretend to be, I haven’t seen many of these before.
An amazing collection of crazy Japanese art from the 60′s courtesy of a journey round my skull.
Design blog Abduzeedo showcases posters for the Olympic games from 1986 onward. If you ask me they are all fantastic… until 1992, then they take horribly tacky a turn for the worse.
Inspiration blog Fubiz puts together an awesome collection of creative barcode designs.
Design Reviver showcases 30 beautifully designed posters. Very inspirational stuff here.
Another epic post from the great Smashing Magazine. As a fanatic of movie posters I would have to agree with these selections. And hey, they even credited my Polish Poster article in their references!
Spoon Graphics does a roundup of 60 customized designer toys. I want all of them!
Another great post from Abduzeedo! A wonderful collection of match box art from the WWII era.
I am huge fan of the Emmy awarding winning series Mad Men. Naturally, I was doing backflips when I happened upon Dyna Moe‘s collection of Mad Men inspired illustrations. Every week she does a new piece inspired by the latest episode. This is 100% awesomeness!
