Before I was funneled into the “simple is better” way of designing, I was pretty inspired by a french designer called Ilias Sounas. He is a French designer who is using very fresh methods to create good quality work. I often look at his website to see what he has been doing.
I would put some screenshots of the pages that he has, however I cant because my computer is playing up at the moment, its probably a virus or something like that… Ahh well.
The below image is one of his pieces of work.
