Help inspire me to design great website UI's!
July 20, 2011 3:49 PM   Subscribe

I'm a solo UI designer for an ad agency & I'm looking for good website or blogs that'll inspire me to make cool & effective user interfaces. Individual websites are cool & all ,but what I'm really looking for are sites like TheFWA or SmashingMagazine that curate cool designs. Bonus points for sites that look at e-commerce websites. Fellow web designers: Where do you get inspiration?

You will love PatternTap and it's tag based structure. GetElastic covers e-commerce from many different perspectives and it pretty much mandatory.

Dribbble, especially shots with tags like User Interface and UI.

Commarts might be more general design than you're looking for, but their daily email always highlights a great website.

You could request an invite to Forrst. I can vouch for the quality of the designs the community members produce – and, as a bonus, you can get feedback on your own work.
