Problem Statement

Writers and artists need quick inspiration or decision to continue their work, rather than losing valuable time. Current generator/inspiration websites either have only words, or pictures. Navigation is confusing, too dated or missing aspects that is normally. In addition, they tend to have too much or too little information.

Project Goal

Inspiration Generator’s goal is to cater to three different users (hobbyists, teachers, professionals) who are story creators. The website will allow a level of personalization so that the user may receive the best options. The website is consistent of user friendly navigation, providing the user to choose the level of customization, inspiring and quality imagery .
