    Your Art Deco Inspiration?

    Do you have a favorite go-to for Art Deco elements or a favorite site for inspiration, or maybe even some links to your art deco inspired work...? Post them here.

    I use creativemarket, graphicriver, and behance.

    Pinterest, Behance are good choice to get inspired. Also, I follow some sources on Instagram, this helps a lot.

    The first two Bioshock games have a strong art deco influence, it's interesting to see how the artists and developers absorbed and implemented it through the game. Try looking for some screenshots and arts.

    You can find a lot of art deco stuff by searching anything "Gatsby." Last time I wanted art deco lettering inspiration, I searched "Gatsby typography" in Google images. Lots of good stuff!

    If you REALLY want to get into it, you should read Paul Renner: The art of typography. He talks a lot on the purpose of geometric sans serifs and the whole idea of geometric shapes in design.

    I have a lot of Art Deco resource books. Some recommendations include "Art Deco: 1910-1939", "The Machine Age", and "'20s and 30s Style".

    Oh, and I'd also recommend Steven Heller's series, including "Deco Type", "Streamline", "Italian Art Deco", etc.
