Posted 22 January 2013 - 03:06 PM

Howdy Guys,

I'm just wondering if you guys can help me out...

I need some design inspiration on a website I'm currently stuck on, I'm having a mental block.

Can anyone help me out?

Thanks.

Take a walk outside.
Visit a local art gallery.
google 'top 20 X sites' where X is your site's theme.
Go shoot hoops..
go to a pet story and get licked by puppies.
Stand on your head.
Sit in a part of your house/cube/apartment you normally don't sit and not at the typical elevation.
etc.. etc.. all sorts of things to do.

I am still lost on what you want me or anyone else to do. You know - expectations and what not. I mean you are being awfully vague.

Okay.. again I am not sure if I am missing something but then why don't you slap down some labels, textboxes, a small 'current weather' icon/temp, and some link to what ever a 'route planner' is.

What does a "reg number look up" look like?
What does a "weather" look like?
What does a "route planner" look like?

I am assuming these are some sort of user controls on a... desktop app? web app? mobile app?

I'm about a week late on this thread but I have some good sources for you.

Layouts and Design
Creattica
Web Creme
Webdesign-inspiration.com
A List Apart

Icons or vector art
VectorStock


Color Themes
Kuler

Fonts
Google Fonts
1001 Free Fonts

I think that should help you out if you are ever in a slump again.
