Inspiration doesn’t have to be a random occurrence. One way to get the vibes flowing is to draw on an assemblage of creative items – websites, ads, songs, photos, anything really – and let it guide your process. The best resource in this situation is your own creative collection, filled with plenty of brilliant things. Get started on this treasure trove of good ideas by collecting constantly. Don’t be afraid of overdoing it. If something catches your eye, save it for later. With Pinterest, you don’t need to hold on to physical items: just create different boards and pin the things you’re drawn to visually. Before you know it, you’ll have a library to inspire you. And that will be a huge help when it comes time for your next jolt of inspiration.
