Help me find good design ideas for my business publications

What are some good sources for layout and design ideas for professional but interesting business documents/presentations? I have access to a full Adobe Creative Suite, Thinkstock library, etc. My previous job doing these had almost no design in it, and my earlier design experience was several years ago and with a very different audience.

In my current job, I create a lot of business-to-business documents (mostly proposals, some presentations). And they are pretty dry, in terms of content. They often come with strict page and format limits (no fonts under 12 point, no bleeds, certain kinds of binding, that sort of thing). But even within that, I feel like I could make something that has some zap to it, if I had some fresh ideas to draw on.
I am willing to buy books/magazine subscriptions if I need to. I'm not just looking to copy other designs, and I do know a bit about the theory behind design, but I feel like my brain is cluttered with old ideas and needs some shaking up.
