When it came time to pick my future career path, the possibilities for creative thinking are what attracted me to public relations:
- Problem-solving and strategizing to produce results that leave a client grinning
- Considering new outlooks and angles to help me better see the world’s endlessly entertaining points of view
- Exploring new methods and techniques to keep ideas fresh and the mind nimble
Recently, in my Internet escapades, I’ve come across a few new websites that instantly inspired me. They sent me either clamoring for my box of craft supplies or running to my notebook, eager for the sweet indulgence of a fine-tipped pen and a fresh page of paper.
Deviant Art is a social-networking community for creative types of every kind with galleries galore. Amazing art, photos, prose and crafts abound, enough to make you awe-inspired and ill with envy, all at the same time. Fancy a vampire killing kit? They have that. How about an animation about animation? Well they have that, too.
Offbeat Home is a place for those of us who like taking a walk on the unordinary side to trigger alternative modes of thinking. All sorts of glee-inducing inspiration can be found. If you want to learn more about “government–sponsored zombie preparedness literature,”or how to make “un–bedside tables for book storage,” you will be pleasantly rewarded.
