Ever wonder where design inspiration comes from? Well, just look around inspiration is all around you. Inspiration can be found in a favorite photo, perhaps an abstract painting hanging in a local art gallery, a trip to an exotic place or a simple walk in the park. Tap into that creativity we all possess. What's it called again? Oh right, your "imagination"! The cool thing about design inspiration is it can be found pratically anywhere and you may not have to look very far. Once that source of inspiration is found or that "uh ahh" moment happens and you say that's "IT!!", you immediately have to take a closer look at what drew you in.
Sometimes a walk in the park or even an outdoor art festival can give you a fresh perspective and new insight on a design project. A great way to help you think outside of the box when you are stumped.

One of my favorite things to do is visit an art gallery. An art gallery has a phlethra of design ideas and inspiration. Peruse the gallery and view collections or take note of an upcoming exhibition. In the photo at the right, this design inspiration may have come from the abstract piece of art. Bold colors are effortlessly placed throughout the design palette that compliments the painting.

Step outside your locality. Ever visit an exotic place? These places lend some amazing design details you can borrow from to say the least. St. Thomas Virgin Islands...need I say more. Yes, please!
