The internet is a wonderful place. I love being able to find out about little things happening across the globe – things that have nothing to do with me but are exciting and interesting. I love going to the internet for inspiration. Not even for a specific project, but because I like looking at and reading about new ideas and concepts.
The internet is a big place and sometimes it’s overwhelming and difficult to find things. So these are a few of the websites I like to follow because they do the hard work for me and bring me little bits and pieces of goodness from around the world.
#1. My Modern Met
My Modern Met features art, design, photography and architecture. I’ve been able to discover a number of talented artists doing things a little differently, whether it’s mini sketches with intricate detailing, or using lips as a canvas. This site is all about celebrating creative ideas and it’s a treasure trove of hidden gems and little bits of goodness.

#2. Arch Daily
Arch Daily is all about architecture. Though I’ve never had a particular desire to be an architect or an interest in the mechanics of how buildings are crafted, I’ve always been fascinated by the design side of architecture – what the finished product looks like to a passer-by. I’m also interested in function and Arch Daily has introduced me to countless tiny buildings all about living simply in small spaces.
Of these three, DesignTAXI can be the most lighthearted. It features all sorts of weird and wonderful things, like dogs trying to lick peanut butter off each others’ lips – so not strictly design-related pieces! It has everything from fashion and lifestyle to product design and gadgets. Plus there’s a great tutorial section, life hacks and as well with tips and tricks for designers.
