Behance & dribbble
For inspiration, news and useful tips, I rely on heavily on Twitter and I will share with you some of my favorite accounts later. But another great source of inspiration comes from Behance.
Yes, I prefer Behance over dribbble
. By a lot, actually. dribbble always seems to me to be this place where you show off half-baked, fun but absolute unrealistic work that often times looks totally generic. Wow, yet another sneaker e-commerce app
To be fair, one of my favorite agencies in the whole world, ueno, gained a massive following on dribbble and actually profited heavily from posting their work on the platform.
But you just can’t find detailed case studies like this one
on dribbble, only on Behance.
tl;dr: dribbble helps me get inspired and ‘dreamy’. Behance is great to understand the process behind the finished design.
Another awesome platform to find new websites, designs and products is Muzli (owned by inVision). It’s a browser extension that shows you everything that’s relevant and new every time you open a new tab. You can customize the feed and add websites and topics you like.
One website I added to Muzli is Product Hunt which used to be my 'new tab’ before Muzli. Product Hunt grew over the years to one of the most important places to promote your new… well, product. 'Maker’ can sign up and share their newest product which users can then upvote. Every day you can see the latest shit straight from Silicon Valley. It’s awesome.
Especially for UX but also for UI and design in general Medium can be a good place to catch up on the latest research, read some thoughts about industry related topics, trends and more.
