So, you’re having one of those days. Three cups of coffee in and you still can’t get those creative juices flowing. Whether you’re staring at a blank screen, notebook or a canvas you’re struggling just a little. Of course thought bubbleyou could spend a little time on Twitter, have a natter with a few friends on Facebook, but it’s not really helping matters is it? Sometimes we all need a little bit of added inspiration - something to spark our imaginations and break through that creative block. Here are a few of our favourite places that can help you do just that - our Top 5 Websites for Creative Inspiration. ( Startacus excluded of course - that kinda goes without saying!)

This site provides daily updates on design, technology, art and culture. There are contributors all across the world who add stories, videos and mini documentaries on all things new, quirky and innovative. Spend a few minutes here and you’re bound to find something that will reignite your imagination.

Since 2002 Springwise has been building a global network of ‘spotters’ who identify new business ideas, ventures and concepts and add them to the site. Most of the featured concepts and ideas are things which can be adapted or developed elsewhere and if you’re in need of a little inspiration for an entrepreneurial endeavour, this is the site where you can get that in bucketloads.

This New York based website provides daily updates on all things new in a whole host of areas - everything from design, technology, gadgets and fashion is covered here. Trends, innovations and news are featured and discussed. Claimed by many to be a go-to source for inspiring creative minds, we can’t help but agree.

Primarily a design blog, there’s still something for everyone here. Packed with articles, links, videos and even quotes, it receives over 1 million visitors a month - people all there for the same reason - to add a little much needed inspiration to their lives. Swissmiss is another site that
you’ve just got to Bookmark.

This blog which describes itself as “human-powered discovery engine for interestingness” is the perfect place to discover new things, curious things and inspiring things. Books, art, science, photography - they’re all featured. It’s one of those places that’s a little like a lucky dip - you never really know what you’ll find in it, but that’s what actually makes it good. Expect the unexpected!
