GFX: desirefx.me
Pinterest & Behance are already enough, you just get nice tags/searches based on your projects, you can check FonsInUse for typography inspiration.

Fonts, just use google and search like this: site: vk.com "font name" and you will probably find it quite quick.

For inspiration, well... what inspire you? Browse art museum and galleries website, look at the artists a gallery represents or past/upcoming exhibitions at museums like MoMa/PS1, Tate modern, Serpentine Galleries, Haus der Kunst, Guggenheim etc...

Check out contemporary culture magazines as 032c.com, kaleidoscope.media, Purple fashion magazine and this list of graphic design magazines https://www.hongkiat.com/blog/42-free-on...designers/

There's soo much out there... just approach everything with an open mind and think about why you like something and why you hate something else... that way inspiration becomes a tool for learning and not just copying someone. Good luck!

I too follow a lot of accounts on instagram, about 2000+... everyting from friends to type foundries and meme accounts, but since they filter the feed for you with the help of machine learning (AI and prediction models of what you will engage with) the feed simply does not represent the full spectrum. Instagram narrows it down to a blend of what you engage with, accounts any of your followers and you both have liked in the past and by constantly monitoring your behaviour and engagement with different accounts it get's "smarter" and tries to be as relevant for you as possible.

Thing is that if you for some weeks really like a lot images from just a few accounts or a certain type of account/image content/whatever it will remodel your feed to show more of that and less of the other stuff. And by that you get spoonfed the same stuff over and over rather than actually seeing what all the accounts you follow post. Instagrams (facebooks) way to earn money is built on ads so the longer they can keep you scrolling the more money they make (more ads are viewed and maybe clicked etc).

Sorry for the rant Smile

Adding a few inspirational sources to stay on topic:

Typography related
https://fontsinuse.com/
https://anothergraphic.org/
https://www.typewolf.com/

Color stuff (Creating color palettes on the fly, learning about what works, why and what not etc)

https://coolors.co/ - Color palette generator with additional tools to see contrasts in %, create gradients of picked colors and libraries of other peoples palettes. Very useful imho.

This guy explains color theory in a very easy to to undestand way, watch the whole playlist and you'll learn a ton of stuff and get inspired to try new approaches to deal with color

As the name says, just a fun site that creates terrible color combinations with just a click, some almost make your eyes bleed
https://hostilecolors.com/

Go go go! Wink

DesignInspiration.com is good too. Not much works but its mostly from artists or creators unlike pinterest where it uses google images, other external images and many users from different background uses Pinterest, hence its a little hard to find creator contents or artist content that fits your searches.
