Holly gave you her top 10 sites a few days ago, and I agree whole-heartedly with ALL of them. But there are a few more that I visit daily of which I definitely want you to be aware. They all have feeds so they can come to you, and I have found that these are the ones that consistently offer useful tools for my career and make me smile (in no particular order).
- Cool Hunting – From art, to gadgets, to fashion and more, this site helps me think big every day.
- Netted by the Webbys – Each day, they find some app or site that a genius person created to solve a problem. Netted brings them to you in a convenient daily e-mail that IS worth clicking open. “Better living through the internet” is their slogan, and they mean it.
- Web Designer Depot – this is the nuts and bolts tips to help with an online life. From the best apps and tools, to general tips and trends in web design,….I trust their advice implicitly. And their freebies are wonderful.
- Architexts – Like a Dilbert for the over-educated and under-utilized, this web comic finds humor at the dysfunction that any office environment can get mired in, but just happens to be in an architecture setting. It doesn’t hurt that during the past 18 months, their drawing style has been the closest to Mad Men as I could get.
- Fast Co. Design – This site – one of the Fast Company family – offers the important connection between the business world and the design world, and that they BOTH can flourish when they work together. If that can’t inspire you, nothing will.
Thank you to all these blogs for the genius you give away freely. We live in fortunate times. Go visit them and enjoy! Did I forget any? Let me know.
