We recently made contact with a highly creative team who also enjoys inspiring people. They tweet various links to inspiring work and also have great works of art and designs on their site. We just had to give them the honor of being April’s Honorable Mention on Pixelsmithstudios. We asked them a few questions so that we can learn a bit more about who they are and what they do.
Tell us about the team and how GetInspired started?
It all started in 2009 when I had an idea to combine all the cool inspirational work I found on the internet into a website as a private inspiration gallery. As a web designer I am always looking for new trends and cool artwork before I start any project. Because my Delicious account was getting a bit full with lots of cool websites and talented designers and started to get confusing. The best solution for me was to create a website and let other people also benefit from it, so .Get Inspired! Magazine was born.
My aim is to create a multi talent platform where artists and designers can get their daily inspiration divided in different sub groups. I try to deliver you high quality work from the best artists and designers in the world. .Get Inspired! Magazine is, and always has been, independent. In the last few years I changed to layout and design into, in my opinion, a nice online magazine which evolution will never stop. I am not only focusing on the inspirational content, also the user experience is something I will always try to improve. Currently I have one team member who is trolling down the internet finding cool stuff for publication.
What do you guys do for fun, any interesting hobbies?
Most of my time free time goes into the website. I’m also a freelance webdesigner, so I’m almost 24/7 at work. Besides that I love photography, design, snowboarding and traveling.
We love creative projects! Have any up your sleeve for 2012?
I’m currently working on some awesome promotional projects for .Get Inspired! Magazine which are top secret 😉 and the first printed magazine will come out this year. Keep an eye on the website for more details.
Any tips and tricks you can give to our readers when working with creativity or how to get inspired?
There are a lot of resources out there to get inspired. I try to combine the best I find and share it with our readers throu Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon and Pinterest. The best things I see will be invited to feature on our website.
