Having healthy meals is an important aspect of our daily lives, but once in a while you just have to check out what’s available for dessert.

If I were to choose one of the most important lessons I’ve learned so far about what it takes to be a successful designer, I would clearly go for the fact that the best sources of inspiration are always the most unconventional or unusual ones.
A good mix of design resources, attractive colors, unusual shapes and some striking graphics is the key to a successful product.
And that’s what this collection of 15 extremely creative packaging examples that I’ve put together for you guys is all about.
Monday is usually a slow day when it comes to productivity, creativity and pretty much anything that requires inspiration. So I thought I’d give you guys a hand and get things going at a faster, funnier pace. How am I going to do that, you ask? Well, I’ve put together a showcase of the 15 funniest print ads I could find. They provide great inspiration for your graphic design projects, as well as a serious laugh.
Creativity is a gift, we all know that. But we also know that it’s not a self-sustainable one and that its development requires permanent stimulation. Especially as the years go by and you start making a living out of it, whether you go for graphic design, photography or for any other art-related fields, the need for an inspiring work or living environment seems to grow even bigger. For all those of you who agree with me on this one, I’ve put together this collection of the most awesome and inspirational decorative stickers.
Get your hands on this ultimate collection of Ps actions that will help you create vintage engraved photos, static image sliders for presentations, 3D books in six positions, HDR images, high quality drop shadows, cinematic 3D texts, make-up retouches, pencil drawing effects, awesome comics from your photos, collages and much more. Furthermore, I’ve added in the mix two freebies: a reflection action and a set containing vintage, retro, old, sepia, monotone, retouch, black and white and artificial lighting effects. Enjoy!
I know we don’t usually post showcases of artists’ work, but I just had to share with you guys what Jacob Dahlstrup does. His unique art is an inspiration for us all, in the sense that with patience and perseverance, we can accomplish anything. So today we’re going to take a look at a small collection of his designs. He works with paper and his illustrations are hand embossed with a tattoo needle. Yes, you heard me.
The word “calligraphy” originates from the Greek kallos which means “beauty” and graphẽ, meaning “writing”. Due to their embellishments, calligraphic fonts may lose on legibility and thus, general usability. But they can still be appropriate for both graphic and web design, identity and branding projects, flyers, brochures, advertisements, product packaging and more. So I decided to put together a showcase of free calligraphic fonts for you guys to add to your personal collection of design resources.
For your dose of design inspiration, I’ve put together today a really cool gallery of famous paintings recreated with Lego pieces. Yes, you’ve heard me. Lego pieces. They’re pretty awesome, if you think about the level of detail and amount of time and creative energy that was put into them. It’s kind of similar to graphic design, come to think about it, so I just had to show you guys.
I personally found that surrounding yourself with unique and inspiring decorative items brings forth more inspiration. So if you’re constantly working in a creative environment, why not make sure it provides ideas for your projects?
