    I'm always curious about how designers find inspiration. What (if any) services/workflows do you use to catalog bits and pieces for your designs? Add to that, do you have a music or beverage or snack preference as you work? :)

      I see inspiration as a collective thing rather than a specific source. I used to frequent design blogs a lot more, but don't find myself spending as much time on those anymore. I tried different bookmarking solutions but still prefer just dragging images into a folder on my desktop whenever something catches my eye. I've compiled a giant folder of images that I go to when I need a spark.

      As far as beverages, either coffee (see my response to Paul for more on that) or water. My all-time favorite snack is home made chocolate chip cookies, but most days just trail mix or pita chips.

      Music varies quite a bit, but a few bands I've really been digging: Ben Howard, London Grammar, Joywave, Aurora, Phoria, James Blake.
