Let me admit on behalf of all designers that creating an engaging and visually stunning website is not easy. Even for the seasoned designers! We neither have a magic trick nor are our minds a computer that we can come up with the best UI designs all the time. We also have our own saturation points, we also get lost in the maze of designs, and need inspirations to come out of this maze. In short, things are not all bliss and glee in our paradise!
Various factors play their role in making things complicated for us. Well, I am not talking about the mood factor that can get snapped anytime whenever we hit the dead end. We have to consider countless factors to come up with a design that can fall into the category of a great design rather than lingering somewhere between good and satisfactory categories.
So, what do we do in such situations? We neither lookout for a new brain nor give up on designing. We look for resources that can tickle our brains to come up with the best designs. In other words, we look for inspiration!
