There are many ways in which to get inspiration for a design. As in my previous post, when I gathered with friends in the design community. I am trying to discuss ways about ideas when creating a design. Here I will try to give a way to get an idea or inspiration to create a design
Looking for Inspiration from Browsing
Google is a mandatory menu that we must open when browsing. We can use google to search the website or portfolio of other designers such as behance.net, Shutterstock, 99Designs. It does not matter if a designer looks at someone else’s work to inspire, the problem is to imitate exactly the work of others. Look for designs that relate to your needs that can make the source of the idea.
After we get the brief from the client try to sketch, grab the paper and pencil make some concept according to a client request, this way often used by some friends including myself to get an original idea.
Very unlikely if you are in a state of stress, too tired or dizzy can get a good idea. Try to relax or relax a little to make your mind fresh and fresh again.
The way I often do is to discuss with friends who understand the design, with a discussion while you can exchange cop thoughts and the results can get new ideas
Open your Portfolio
As a designer, of course, you have made some design work try to open your masterpiece again, you can develop the design concept you ever made to produce a new design work.
If you are still having trouble getting ideas, try to rearrange your workspace, I think the workspace is influential with our work. With a comfortable workplace, we will easily get fresh ideas.
Work at Night
Creating a work of design needed tranquility to get the maximum work. I have tried to survey some friends in the design community and the result is that they work at night because the idea always appears at night. I think you need to try it.
