    13 Non-Art Sites That Spark Creativity

    Inspired by a post at Write Livelihood entitled Non-Writing Blogs That Can Nourish Your Work which was in turn inspired by a post at Fuel Your Writing entitled 6 Non-Writing Blogs You Should Be Reading, I've put together a list of non-artsy sites that boost creativity. Narrowly defining "art" here so that I can share design & photography sites as well.

    1. The Style Files blogs from The Netherlands about "design and (life) style" across the globe.
    2. Smashing Magazine pulls together design inspiration, including typography, web design, logo design and beyond, stuff like Inspire Yourself: Favicons.
    3. Polyvore lets you digitally mix & match fashions to make inspiration boards.
    4. Creative Liberty writes with a unique perspective on creativity. 
    5. The photography at Color Me Katie defies description; it's fresh, fun, gutsy and innovative.
    6. Six Revisions design info for web designers but just cool for the rest of us.
    7. Television Tropes provides a meandering path through conventions such as Everybody Hates Mathematics
    8. The Visual Dictionary does just that, collecting photographs of words.
    9. Orangette, technically about food, really it's about stylish photography and lovely words
    10. Symbols.com searchable by words or description
    11. Cool Photoblogs hopping through photos in the Top Photoblogs
    12. I Love Typography because I do
