I like to think I come up with original concepts as and when I can but I do find it really gives me a kick start when I can see examples of what other people have been doing to inspire my own design process. I thought it might be good to post a question providing links to some of the best design pattern/inspiration web sites I have come across in the past.

Here are some that I use quite frequently, probably in order of most used:

http://www.smashingmagazine.com/

http://patterntap.com/

http://patternry.com/?page=1

http://konigi.com/

http://www.designfridge.co.uk/

Does anyone have any others to add to this list?

Here's a great collection of pattern resources by smashing magazin:

And one by Yahoo:

UX Pond provides a search facility that looks at all these UI pattern sites at once.

  • This is cool, I've used the logo version of this hadn't seen this one before though. – Cliftwalker Apr 15 '11 at 8:40
