Inspiration Links

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 21, 2011, 1:01 AM
Hey Y'all,

I know that the retouches aren't really coming through lately, but I have been working on a couple of other interesting projects. I started an internship with de Monsters and so far it has been an awesome experience.

But what I really wanted to let you know is that I started this website called Inspiration Links. I went through al my bookmarks (which where over 600) and gathered the most inspirational and the most useful for designers and developers. I took al the links who I thought had a certain quality, made this amazing list and with a little markup I made it all available for you to go through. I think this list can really help you with your daily search for inspiration and answers.

In the future I'll be adding a feature section, where I highlight a website worth mentioning. I'll also be expending the website with a blog on inspiration, workflow and the things I came across in my design career.

So check it out and I'm sure you'll find some awesome inspiration

Hey Y'all,

Some of you asked me if I was working on some new retouches. Well I am...
But the problem is that I'm very bussy with school and that I have to keep up with my work.
As some of you know, I am a freelancer and I get a lot of web design and development jobs at the moment.
That is the reason why I decided to post about web design as well. (So you know I'm not dead ;))

Greetings and a lot of love!!

Interesting and Amusing

is now a cause for panic and you turn around to go and get it.

10. You get up in the morning and go on line before getting your coffee.

11. You start tilting your head sideways to smile. : )

12. You're reading this and nodding and laughing.

15. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a #9 on this list.
