Tip O’ the Day: Collect Design Samples
When you go to the bank, the post office, the mobile phone shop, chances are that you will find flyers and pamphlets promoting their services.
Maybe you read the Hello and OK magazines, or you just got another of these annoying leaflets through the mail. Don’t throw them away and do take that pamphlet at the mobile phone store even if it doesn’t interest you. Keep them as design samples. They can help you find inspiration (still make sure you don’t copy somebody else’s work) or you can have a look at what they do and don’t like in their design.
This is a great way to improve your skills and break from fixed styles which you might have developed.
