Keeping up creativity all the time is not easy – sometimes loss of inspiration happens.  I was attending the AdobeMax 2016 – The Creativity Conference in San Diego in November, which is considered the largest conference of creative people in the world. I have asked many attendees such as designers, illustrators and photographers about how they stay creative and where they get their inspirations from. So how do they hold on to their creativity and maybe even become more creative?

Here are the Top 44 ways to stay creative
