Best websites for creative inspiration
Looking for the best websites to keep your inspiration topped up? Lars Bjørnbakk lists his top sites for keeping on top of the creative industries.

First of which in the category of advertising, and probably one of the most globally popular, is AdWeek/AdFreak. Based in the US, expect to see a lot of american work there.
