20 inspirational sites for graphic designers

Inspiration is what allows designers to create unique pieces. It derives from everything: music, films, photos, t-shirts, people… But there are days that you are on computer observing your empty canvas without any idea to start from. In these cases surfing sites that publish fresh inspirational contents can help you. Today I selected 20 sites that can help creatives to find ideas and inspiration.
