We ask local tech leaders for their reading list. Check ‘em out here.
Recently, we caught up with The Barn founder and Creative Director Nick Matarese regarding his company’s latest pursuits. As part of that larger conversation, we asked Matarese what he sits down to at his computer every morning.
What are the sites that his fingers pound out every day by sheer force of habit?
Matarese responded with three separate design-focused sites.
“You can have one little thing,” Matarese told us, “from something that makes no sense whatsoever and pull it into a design. You’re literally looking for that ‘lightbulb inspiration.’ It could be anything. It could be the curl of a woman’s hair in a photograph that could, you know, just spin your head completely into something else.”
Here’s a look at some of the inspiration you’d find on those sites.
