If you’re looking for some stimuli to get the creative juices flowing, look no further than the fantastic Lightboxing organised every month by Veer.
The idea is simple: two designers are given the same lightbox of elements and a theme. It’s like instant death Photoshop Tennis.
Actually, the competitive aspect isn’t really important. The real joy comes from seeing great designs being created. This month’s match is particularly great.
Speaking of creative juices, those orange mad folks at The Chopping Block are putting together a new design for their site. At first I missed the oranges song from their old site but it turns out that it’s still there, just hidden away a bit (listen to the testimonial).
