20 Excellent Blogs for Those Who Love Design

By / Mar 26, 2009 / Resources

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.

    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???!!!!!

    The article you have written is brilliant. Your information is very well founded and presented in such a convincing way. I have read many articles on this subject, but by far, yours is the best. Thanks for Sharing
