We all need inspiration for our ideas. I often sketch concepts on paper while researching for a project. Some people find it easier to jump right onto the computer, however, limiting yourself to the tools of technology can hinder the creative process. Having an idea before you start the project can save you and your client a lot of time and money. Creating involves creativity, and without ideas you will find yourself with mediocre work that makes no sense. Having a theme is a good place to start. Writing down words associated with the style and theme you are looking for can broaden your ideas. It is better to go too far than not to have gone far enough.
Whenever I hit a creative road block, I look to my peers. Some great sites to check out to fuel your ideas: www.netdiver.net, www.designcharts.com, www.aiga.org, www.stepinsidedesign.com
