Web Resources to Inspire Graphic Design in Brunei

A situation that is all too familiar to creatives: no idea seems to be working, no inspiration is coming up and all creative fuel are drying up. Creative block happens even to the best of us. Looking to reignite the spark of creativity? Here are five useful web resources for graphic designers to break through your creative block:

  1. Listen – ‘Adobe’s Wireframe with Khoi Vinh’

Hosted by Adobe’s Principal Designer, former Design Director for The New York Times and one of Fast Company’s ‘Top 50 Most Influential Designers in America’, there is no better person to learn about design than from Khoi Vinh himself. ‘Wireframe’ demystifies design processes and thinking by bringing talented designers in a discussion to tell stories about design, art, culture and technology. Interested in typography? Give their episode ‘Why We Love to Hate Comic Sans and the Return of Fonts with Personality’ a listen!

Reading about other creative projects from different mediums can help you shift to a different perspective. Without realising you are falling to the same creative routine and design process that keeps you complacent and stagnant.

From typography, animation, logos to rebrands on top of useful interviews from various renowned graphic designers from around the world, a read of ‘It’s Nice That’ blogs will surely help you in breaking free from that creative rut.
