Whether you’re a web designer, a print designer, or a photographer, you probably share a common trait with me and other creative types – a love for all things design related. I’m a web designer, but I love reading blogs that cover anything about design. I think there is much to be learned from exploring and learning about various mediums.

Here are some of my favorite blogs that cover various topics from web design to package design.

    You’ve mined out some great ones here – some that newer folks should be aware of, and some less heard of in the design community – very cool!

    Frequent most of the sites listed for several months now. Majority of them have also been featured on smashingmagazine.com more than one times.

    No wonder web design is currently the most popular web skill. (data from elance.com)

    This is a great collection of blogs. You never have to run out of ideas when you are connected to the internet. We have so many resources to pull from for design projects. That is especially helpful for marketing design where every client wants something different for their posters, signs, logos, postcards. . .

    This is the first time to ever have a website to work on, learning so many things i think my mind will explode with information i have never heard of before.Although i am an artist and an interior designer i cant help but be more than impressed with those who have an ability to easily grasp all this wonderful web design stuff. I am still in the learning process, which is getting better the more i keep working on my site. The thing that i have still no clue to work with are tags???!!!!!
