Are you running out of ideas for your next web design projects? Good news for you: I have some tips to find inspiration at a high level, non-stop.

1. The Webflow website

Whether you use Webflow for website creation or not, you are always welcome on their platform. Just go to the tab: Showcase. Every day, new projects keep appearing there.

On the other hand, if you use Webflow (or plan to learn it), you get a small bonus. You can actually clone the design you like (and then use it as your high level inspiration). Maybe you'll have questions about how the author of the design did this or that. Do you know that you can contact him directly?

2. Behance, the library of creativity

This platform does not only showcase website designs. Everything about design is gathered here, from photographs to illustrations and graphics...

Kind of hard to find your way around for your high-level inspiration, you say? No, it's not. You can filter your searches. On the search bar, for example, you just have to write what you are looking for (webdesign, among others).

However, you don't have to concentrate on website designs. Sometimes, I also take inspiration from simple illustrations. There are very interesting color combinations on the posters (of elements, typographies...)!

There is a Youtube video in which I describe this at the bottom of the article. Support me by subscting to the YouTube channel "Happy Desk Design"

3. Awwwards for high-level inspiration

Awwwards is particularly reserved for webdesign. What I like about Awwwwards is that users can vote on the most original project of the week. In webdesign, small details make all the difference! And it's precisely in the Awwwwards platform that you can find these little details to inspire you!

Me for example, thanks to Awwwards as a high-level source of inspiration, I've rarely discovered very original website ideas (so far, I've never stopped discovering them).

Conclusion
You may be a beginner, and you think that at your level, producing a design as beautiful as those present in these platforms is still impossible. Of course, it's still difficult (not impossible), but as you feed your mind with all this creativity, I'm sure you'll progress quickly!
