How do you collect design inspiration you find around the web?

Sometimes I see a great ui design/style/color that I want to keep around as inspiration. Any recommendations?

      Absolutely love Evernote. Use it for work and personal use and that is easy with the ability to make notebooks. Tags are super helpful as is annotating a document or editing a picture with Skitch. Makes my life easier and more organized!

Evernote impacts a business's productivity by streamlining the collection and distribution of critical information by enhancing its retrieval.

    Raindrop.io 4.0

    All in one bookmark manager become even better

    Jeff DashleyWeb Designer, sometimes Β· Written
    Been searching for the same thing with the ability to share everything across devices. Raindrop seems pretty promising.

      I used to use Stache for my bookmarks before d3i abandoned the product (despite being paid). Stache was amazing for a couple reasons: when you bookmarked a webpage they captured the HTML and a really good full-page screenshot. They used the HTML to search and to render a preview of the page later if you were offline, and the screenshot was used for a thumbnail and to let you view the page as it was when you captured it, even if it changed or died since then. Alas, syncing broke in Stache a couple years ago and I switched over to Raindrop.

      Raindrop initially had new features coming out frequently. It seemed like they were going to grow fast and start charging money once they had a healthy user base in order to hire on additional people. They did grow fast, but I think the single developer lost interest in developing it so the product stagnated and a traditional support channel never materialized. They did add a paid subscription, but with a modest additional featureset.

      Most unfortunately, Raindrop has failed to figure out how to properly capture and resurface bookmarked pages. Thumbnails are often a small icon from the page blown up into pixelated oblivion and then cropped square. There is a feature to capture a screenshot of a page, but there's zero UI feedback once you opt into it on a given bookmark and it frequently doesn't work. Search is even worse: results are sorted by recency, there isn't an option to use relevancy, and Raindrop doesn't capture page content so only the page title and description are searched. Tags aren't even searched unless you specifically add the hash symbol, making the benefits of tagging limited.

      I'm sure something else will come along and replace Raindrop for me eventually, but for now, I'll continue amassing useful links in an utterly unsearchable form in hopes that they'll suddenly become useful one day.

      I've used this pretty much since it first launched and I really love this app, I use it frequently throughout my day on all my devices. I love that I am able to have various collections, customize them and just really keep my bookmarks synced across devices. It's a handy and very useful app, I highly recommend it.

    Pinterest is quite an obvious choice for something like this. I'm quite a heavy pinterest user, I collect inspiration from around the web, create different pin boards depending on categories.

    Bear

    A beautiful, flexible writing app for notes and prose

    Just doing screenshots and using a notes app – I like Bear for it's easy tagging system

    • Justin DeardorffHunter/Gatherer of Ideas

      I searched high and low for a replacement to the Mac OS default Notes app, which is incredibly limited in functionality and insufficient for my needs. I had one twist - I needed to find a note taking app for Mac that did not sync or store notes in the cloud. Bear does just that and it happens to be great. I really enjoy the hashtag categorization system and ability to have multiple tags on a note. It's a twist on Evernote style tags, but with a lighter-weight style of notebook organization and management.

      Overall I love Bear. It is beautifully designed. I love the simple interface and the ability to tag notes is amazing. It makes searching for old notes so much easier. This is better than Apple Notes and I love it so much more than Evernote.

    Organization and flexibility are at the core of Milanote. It's easy to put together mood boards and the web extension makes gathering inspiration a piece of cake. It's a powerful research and inspiration tool.

    Chrome extension lets you instantly add any image you find on the web to one of your boards. Add a comment about why you like the image or leave it as a standalone. Colour coding, to-do lists - it's extremely versatile.

    Savee

    The best way to save and share inspiration

    Juan VaamondeSenior UI/UX designer at Channel 7 Β· Written
    I've tried many different tools in the past for saving design inspiration, but they all had cons that convinced me to keep looking. Evernote, Dropmark, Pinterest, Pixave, Inboard. Ultimately all I wanted was an easy way to view a grid of images I'd saved. I wanted to be able to change the column size and gutter size. Savee is exactly that.

      It is incredible from the point of view of marketing, as we always look for inspiration on other screenshots of app and website applications, saving them is easy and it is very organized. We still need to figure out the best way to organize them, so let's keep in touch,

      We started using Airtable to manage our content projects at work. After using it for a month, I decided I liked it so much that I signed up for Zapier and Airtable to manage my personal projects as well. It has completely changed everything.

    Dynalist

    A web app for structuring your thoughts into lists

    Stowe Boydfuturist, researcher, imperfectionist Β· Written
    I had tried Workflowy years ago, an outline-based bookmarking and organization tool, but some of its design was a headache. Dynalist is a tool I have only recently started using, but seems to build on the strengths of an outline-based design, while avoiding some of Workflowy's limitations (like only one outline for everything). Native support for Markdown in notes is great, too.
