We decided to put together a somewhat different list of inspiring websites. We’re featuring upcoming design, artistic and development related events and conferences websites. The idea is not only to show you ‘beautiful and well designed’ websites but also conferences, talks and places where you can go to get inspiration and to meet people. From UX workshops to Arts Festival and New Adventures in Web Design, you will see inspiring websites and even more inspiring events to renew your ideas and networking. Hope you enjoy.
