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.
When I first started studying advertising, I did not really know where to look for news and inspiration regarding the industry. Being curious about what the trends and standards of the work produced in the industry, both nationally and globally, I started to look for sources of inspiration.
Here are a few sources I regularly go to for information and inspiration; whether it is to prepare for an idea session, research industry trends or just simply for procrastination and entertainment.
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. They are not only covering advertising, but a lot of different news related to creativity, as well as some popular (often funny) videos that in some sense could relate to the creative industry, if not only internet trends.
