You never know when inspiration is going to hit you and translate into a billion dollar idea - I love browsing magazines, watching old movies, looking a vintage packaging etc in search of that piece that strikes me. My favorite Flickr user's photostream is an endless source of inspiration for me...
I could browse his photos all day long...But I don't really have time to spend my whole day on Flickr. Recently I discovered a screensaver called ShuffleSaver
The screensaver connects to Flickr and offers and endless stream of photos; either from the user of your choice or a certain keyword. Say you're doing a project on Music Festivals you can simply type in those two key words and the screensaver will load 500 images directly from Flickr and display them at random on your screen. The other feature I love is that you can simply click "s" to save the image to a directory of your choice. Instead of having a blank screen or some abstract color design fill your dormant computer's screen, why not have a stream of inspiration pouring into your home?I hope this tool is as helpful and inspirational to you as it has been to me!
