As a designer, one of my favourite places to be inspired is through the big screen. I love to soak everything up, from title sequences, to colour choices, sounds and how shots are framed and tracked. It’s an incredible world of discovery where, with some films, it transcends simple enjoyment and moves into a larger world of awe and wonder.
There is no getting around it – if you want to learn more about your craft, find interesting designers talking about the UX and design topics of the day, join conversations, and share your opinions – Twitter is where to be.
With the thousands of designers on Twitter, it can be hard to find the voices that particularly speak to your needs. So I’ve curated some of my favourite Twitter accounts – the people that consistently inspire and enrich my day, and hopefully yours too.
