16 Websites to display your Creative Work

There are a lot of new designers out there without a website, but the internet has made it easy for you to display your work without having to buy a domain name. I’m 100% for making my own website,  but then again i did go to web design school.

This is a selection of online community’s that lets you display your creative work and also, lets you network with other designers.

With feedback from our ever-growing community and lots of nerdy elbow grease, it has become something that we are quite proud of.

    Great list of resources!

    Sorry if this sounds self-promotional, but I just launched a brand new site that I think could fit into this category as well.

    http://cssactivity.com is a site that takes automatic screenshots of websites that inspire you. Its a visual social bookmarking site for web designers.

    Deviant art is the best I think. Really good artists and so many different examples of it. I do like this site: http://plewto.com it has some good art from whoever makes it, and then there is another site I found that has great art from this woman, but I think her site is down now. She had some REALLY great sci-fi art she did in Photoshop. I am seeing if I have the wrong site or not, but I keep searching for her work.
