Inspiration: World Art & Ads

When hunting inspiration, skip outside of your hometown, past your city lines and across the ocean.

Looking at work from other countries (or even better - visiting other countries) is a surefire way to stir up some inspiration and get your creative juices flowing.

Ads of the World is a great resource for that. They post print and TV spots from all around the world (hence the name). It's also a great place to check if someone's already done your idea somewhere else.

How can you merge some of what you see abroad with things here and create something new, interesting and relevant? How can you make your work stand out and be a one-of-a-kind creation?

I came across these beautiful ads for the Mozambique Music Awards on Kiss My Black Ads (one of my fav blogs) and thought I'd share.
