We always try our best to challenge your artistic abilities and produce some interesting, beautiful and creative artwork. And as designers we usually turn to different sources of inspiration. As a matter of fact, we’ve discovered the best one — desktop wallpapers that are a little more distinctive than the usual crowd.

A portfolio can make or break you. It’s important to show your best work, your variety and stand out. In this showcase we’ve put together a collection of 55 portfolios we’ve found online that we think stand out as clever, creative and inspiring. We hope these can inspire you when you’re making your own portfolio, when creating web designs and in other projects. We find these pleasant to look at and invite the visitors to want to learn more about the people behind them.

Imagine taking your 0.5 mechanical pencil and drawing on a large, blank piece of white paper for 10 hours a day, seven days a week, for 10 full months.

Data visualizations, a.k.a Infographics, provide a great way to visualize a topic that would be hard to understand when reading. Infographics are present to us in media sources like magazines, television, books, posters, signs, and anything else that has complex information.

This is a Samsung SH100. This little wi-fi enabled camera is about to go on a big roadtrip, from LA to New York City. To get there, we’ll take a picture, post it to Facebook and hand it off to a trucker…or a tourist…or a florist…or a cop.
