Every day as I’m cruising around the web picking up stuff for Colossal I run into one-off images that I want to save but can’t quite create an entire post around. I used to save them to a folder on my desktop which was fine but I had no way to share them with anyone else. Enter the very awesome web site from designer Shelby White, Designspiration. Similar to other inspiration sharing web sites, Designspiration allows you to use a simple browser add-on to click desired images on any web page and upload them directly to your profile. Unlike those other web sites, Shelby has created a host of great tools including a handy search, tagging, the ability to follow other users, and to vote on the images that inspire you the most. It’s a site I visit as frequently as a major news sites to see what’s emerging in the art and design world. See my personal collection of stuff here.
Wanna play? I’ve got a spare invite that I’d love to pass along. To throw your name in the hat just “like” the Colossal Facebook page and leave a comment under the Designspiration post with a link to a single image you would share. At the end of the week I’ll pick one of superior awesomeness and shoot you a Facebook message with the invite.
