There are a number of well known inspiration and submission sites, or Social Image Bookmarking, like FFFFound, ImgFav, Dropular, I Heart This, ImageSpark, Vi.sualise.us, YayEveryday, PicoCool. Most of these are pretty mainstream, but I have encountered some other cool sites worthy of a bookmark or two. A few border on being portfolio sites as well, but all are great places to expand your thirst for visual inspiration.

Topics are broad for most of these sites and include : Typography, Art, Illustration, Photography, Logos, Advertising, Interactive Media etc.

Have also included appropriate Twitter Id's as well.

WebTrendMap and Twitter Lists

The following sites are also listed on my WebTrendMap and Twitter Design & Inspiration List.

Also, don't forget my pal's super turbo charged Twitter List 'http://twitter.com/imrogb/design-links' by @ImRogB which has over 900 followers to date.

If you know of any other creative inspiration sites not listed above or below, then please do leave a comment with details. I am not really fussed with specific sites like website or logo inspiration sites, more general in nature.

Always, and I mean always, on the look out for new sources of inspiration, I occasional stumble cross a site that has a healthy helping of logo designs, typography, art and pretty much everything else. @ShareSomeCandy is one of those sites.

I have been subscribed for a while, but only just now felt like linking to it. I feel it has a nice balance of inspiration without being cocky or too much up it's own ass.

There are a number of categories, including: architecture art design furniture grafitti handmade illustration logos objects packaging photography sculpture typography video

So more than enough inspiration for everyone. My favorites are design, logos, photography, packaging and typography.

Taking Submissions

You can submit work to Share Some Candy where it may or may not be published, then it has a nice and simple recommended engine, just flag images you like. Easy. I have only just submitted a few of my own designs, so will see how rigorous they vet the designs.

Even if you don't plan to use it to submit, it's a great place to visit.
