If you’re into design, look for inspiration on the web from designers. But try to find items they’ve posted themselves, rather than just doing a Google search.

NPD (Newspagedesigner) is a place where designers put their work, portfolios, review work, and blog.

Look for international work to see what the rest of the world is doing. Even if you don’t understand the language you can make sense of the design. Remember – just this month SND named five newspapers as “world’s best designed.” The newspapers hailed from Canada, Mexico, Germany and Denmark.
