Dubbed the Yanko Design x KeyShot Inspiration Hub, it’s the one place designers and creatives can visit to find the most inspirational design work. Simultaneously, the Inspiration Hub will also propel good designers to the forefront by helping them showcase their great designing and rendering skills to a broader global audience.
The hub helps fulfill YD and KeyShot’s broad goal of recognizing exemplary work from a distance and helping amplify it without having to rely on an algorithm, unlike with portfolio sites and social media. It relies on YD’s 20-year history of curating great ideas, concepts, and case studies and ties it to KeyShot’s powerful position as the design industry’s most powerful and preferred rendering software.
Together, YD and KeyShot are creating an ‘ever-expanding encyclopedia’ of design work that you can either participate in or get inspired by. Learn more about how to participate by visiting the hub, and also get your hands on a trial of KeyShot 11 to see how it upgrades your work output. Our jury panel will handpick some of the best work found online and share it with the rest of the world, helping inspire other designers, helping inform companies/recruiters/investors, and helping move the conversation on good design forward. The hub will also award a ‘Design of the Week’, a ‘Design of the Month’ and a ‘Design of the Year’ to the best work, featuring it at the top of the hub’s page while giving it a permanent badge and entering it into the Inspiration Hub’s ‘Hall of Fame’. Hall-of-Famers will also be featured on Yanko Design’s Instagram page, and will win exciting prizes from KeyShot.
Unlike awards programs, the Inspiration Hub is free, and unlike Instagram, it isn’t completely controlled by an algorithm. We recommend adding the Inspiration Hub to your weekly diet of good design, and encourage you to be a part of this elite community that’s made of designers, for designers, and by designers! Moreover, the hub also serves as a one-stop destination to find inspiration for your work and your own personal skill-building as a designer. Finding inspiration can be a bit of a challenge. You end up searching on Pinterest, on Behance, on Yanko Design, maybe you browse Instagram, search a few hashtags, find saved bookmarks in the IG app, or in your web browser, or you look for links you’ve saved in your Notes application. There’s no one great place to go for design inspiration, and that’s what the Yanko Design x KeyShot Inspiration Hub aims at being.
The Inspiration Hub showcases great design projects in a way that’s easy to browse and share with your team members and fellow design collaborators. The format helps you scan through multiple designs and take a closer look at stuff that inspires you. Bookmark them, share them, or study them to help boost your own skill set. The Inspiration Hub helps keep those creative juices flowing.
The hub will constantly evolve and expand with time, featuring inspiring and good design powered by YD’s curation. You can further filter out the designs by searching for keywords, categories, and designer names. So what are you waiting for, go visit the Inspiration Hub to see what your peers are up to, and share your work with the hub to be a part of the fastest-growing community in the design industry!
