Prepare to be Abducted by Design. I found this site a while ago, and I keep going back. It's got everything: image bookmarks, designer interviews, tutorials, articles, and more. It's great because it showcases a variety of work from a variety of designers. There are so many styles and graphics which makes it accessible to a large demographic. The downside is sometimes you have to hunt for things you like (I've seen a lot of things on it I think are tacky, heck, I'm not even a big fan of the site's design). As a result of this, I've also seen many styles I haven't, and can appreciate it more. There are great examples of typography, drawings, photography, collages, design in general. The tutorials also seem to be pretty cool. It's a great site for inspiration, entertainment, or if you want to learn about styles.
My favourite thing is the daily inspiration. I've seen some great images (both shown on this post are from this section). It's also cool because you can not only follow this community, but join it. So check it out, you may be pleasently suprised.
