Not everyone wants to go window shopping when the deadline is running right after them. However Template Monster might have a great flock of inspiration for you right at the corner.

It can also give you quite a lot of insights from many industries, which is a good foundation to work on in case you’ve encountered an unfamiliar industry.
Never say no to a good source of website design inspiration, because you’ll never know when you’ll need it. After working for quite many years in the industry, we must agree that to perform great visuals, we can’t ever live without great inspiration.
