Since starting this blog all the way back in January this year I've found myself spending a lot of time searching for images to accompany my postings, so much so that Google Images has become my new best friend and I more often than not spend more time choosing an image than working on the actual posting itself. Ever the designer, I'm more interested in the way the site looks rather than what it's saying.
During these lengthy image searches certain sites crop up again and again, plenty of which I'm already familiar with like Flickr, Tumblr, Imageshack, Picasa etc. but some appeared that I wasn't aware of, my favourite of which is FFFFOUND!.
FFFFOUND! is an image bookmarking service for found images that's full of photography, graphic design, product design, architecture, logos, packaging and illustration. Essentially it's a smorgasbord of inspiration for anyone suffering from a creative block or just wanting to see some interesting imagery.
Sadly the iPhone/iTouch app had to be pulled when Apple moved the goalposts and to join you have to be invited so I'm out in the cold but at least you can trawl the site freely and pore over all the lovely artwork and then get depressed because everything you've ever done is rubbish in comparison.
