Inspiration is creation, that’s what I always say. When you’re a young artist trying to make it, it’s important to be in touch with what the biggest names in the industry are up to. The only problem is – how do you stay in touch? When it comes to art, you can easily get lost in the Internet jungle. Luckily, I discovered the new and fresh Design Faves, a website that shows you the latest and most creative ideas in architecture, fashion, art, web design, etc. The website has a very good selection of material; you get to see pictures showcasing the latest designs in various fields and read the stories behind them.

The website is pretty basic. You simply go on the homepage and follow the most popular and/or recent post, or you select what you are interested in by picking a category. Right now it has 23 categories, but the creators update Design Faves on a daily basis, so it will probably become an encyclopedia soon enough.

I really love what I’ve found while browsing through it; I find the playful figurative wood sculptures by Willy Verginer extremely interesting and the frozen moments of a bird in flight caught by Sølve Sundsbø simply magical.
