25 Websites Every Designer Must Bookmark This 2014

image

As Spiralytics’ web designer, part of my job is to never run out of inspiration and get those creative juices actively flowing. And when you’re designing on a daily basis with deadlines to meet, you need to kick designer’s block to the curb. Luckily for designers like me, the Internet offers not just unlimited cat videos, there are also a ton of websites that can refuel my design inspiration tank when I’m in dire need.

For my very first blog post in Spiralytics, I’ll be sharing my top 25 picks of websites that can help fellow designers to never run out of new creative ideas and get their designing mojo back. The list includes fresh, amazing, and very useful must-bookmark websites for this year.

1. Typoguide - A pocket guide to master every day’s typographic adventures. This little guide is prepared by Benedikt Lehnert. He made this for everyone who just want to do things right. It is a great resource which explains the basics of typography. And even if you find yourself experienced in typography, I’m pretty sure you’ll still learn something cool and new from here.

2. Duo - A web browser that allows you to view both mobile and desktop made by Electric Pulp. Whether you’re a designer or developer, project manager or client and you’re into Responsive Development, Duo is perfect for you.

1. Remind yourself that everyone makes mistakes, does things wrongs, and has moments of regret. There are no perfect people out there. In that sense, you are just the same as everybody else.

2. Remind yourself that “that was then, and this is now”. You can’t turn back the clocks and change what…

Stress Management Tips

1. Breathe slowly and deeply: Shallow chest breathing makes your heart beat faster, and tenses your muscles, so you feel more stressed. In contrast, breathing slowly and deeply helps you feel much more relaxed.

2. Visualize yourself being calm and relaxed:Imagine all your stress being washed away; or try and visualize yourself in a peaceful scene such as lying on the beach or in a garden, with a book. As you focus on the details, you’ll start to feel less stressed.

3. Smile: Research shows that when we force ourselves to smile it actually improves the way we feel.

4. Don’t grit your teeth: We tend to hold stress in certain parts of our bodies - the teeth and the jaw are one typical part. So when you start to feel stressed, repeat the following exercise: Put the tips of your fingers on the joints below your ears. Clench your teeth - inhale - hold your breath – and then exhale, saying “Ah-h-h-h” . Unclench your teeth and repeat the exercise.

5. Write your feelings down on paper: Writing gives us a way to express how we feel, and it helps to release our pent up emotions.   

6. Count to 10: Give yourself some distance and time before responding. If you react right away you might regret it later on.

7. Take a sniff: There are numerous healing oils that can help to calm you down so take a sniff from a bottle of soothing, healing balm. (For example, chamomile, eucalyptus, lavender, peppermint, rose and thyme.)

8. Go for a walk: Endorphins are released by any form of exercise – and these improve our mood and help us keep things more in balance. Just going for a walk will help to moderate your breathing, reduce your blood pressure, and help to calm you down.

9. Soak in a hot bath: There’s nothing like relaxing in a hot bubble bath to reduce your stress levels and improve the way you feel (especially if you light some scented candles, as well).

10. Turn up the music: We all have favourite music that distracts us from our problems, that grounds us in the present, and helps us feel less stressed.
