Looking For Design Blogs
Thursday, August 26, 2004 at 12:12 pm | Comments off
Let's face it, there are tons of blogs that talk about web standards and few that talk about design. It's either that or I'm just missing them all. Talking about standards is great, and it needs to be done, but I for one would love to see a few of the prominent designers talk more about design. As someone who has had no formal training in design and have just picked up what I can by teaching myself, I'd love to hear the techniques people use to get things done. While I'm no Eric Meyer or Dan Cederholm, I'd say my area of expertise lies with XHTML and CSS, with design further down the line. I'm certain that I do things the hard way because I don't know the easy way.
Cameron Moll's Authentic Boredom, and the recently re-discovered Sam Royama's DesignDojo (who hasn't posted for an eternity) are two blogs that seem to talk predominantly about design. There are others who talk about it every now and then, but there don't seem to be many bloggers who focus on design. Cameron's Wicked Worn series was a huge help when I attempted to create the weathered look for my Scobleizer redesign (WIP).
Does anyone know of any others that I can add to my list of frequent reads? I'd love to hear about more design blogs, if anyone knows of any good ones. Go ahead and lay 'em on me...
