This week on Friday Inspiration:  An alternative magazine with eye-popping image gallery effects, a timeless design for a timeless backpack, a typography site with more effects on six characters than you’ll know what to do with, and more.

We know that it can be tough to keep the creative juices flowing, especially at the end of the week. That’s what this corner is all about. We’ll hit you with seven websites we stumbled upon in the past week to give you a burst of inspiration to and help you power through to the weekend.
