Just when you thought that we were done highlighting a few sites that we have especially enjoyed during the month of June…but wait, there’s more.
We enjoy the analytical approach of trendmatter, the outgoing energy of we make money not art, and the depth of designboom.
Trendmatter is descibed as “a journey into the strange yet wonderful world of being a design student, with ramblings about experiences and observations as [the author, Mac] starts along the path of design, not really knowing where [he'll] end up.” We look forward to accompanying you on this journey, Mac!
We-Make-Money-Not-Art has stimulating imagery, and they feature edgy innovation that…makes us think. We like it.
Studio 469′s blog has great design (no surprise, given their incredible work), imagery, and insights. For inspiration and great resources, we encourage you to check it out.
And, we’re fans of another blog all about creativity, insights, and ideas. The blog is titled “Login + Emotion.” We were also quite impressed by a recent analysis of the ecosystems of agencies. Behance often contemplates how the concept of an “agency” in the creative world will evolve over time. We suggest you check out David Armano’s posting on the topic.
Design Observer has a great eye for the convergence of design and culture. The site takes an enlightening, historical perspective on how design evolves around us. We commend Michael, William, and Jessica for their work developing such a great spark every few days for our creative minds.
Garr Reynold keeps a helpful blog about all-things presentation, Presentation Zen. As we are entering the creative professional era, we need to start thinking about how creative professionals present themselves and their work professionally (see one Behance article on a similar topic here).
Garr has a great article on Ben Zander, legendary performer, that makes the case for taking risk, empowering others, etc…but all in a creative context.
Italian trendwatching site Elmanco, a popular European blog document beauty, innovation, and good design, has launched “A Blog List.” This directory of creative blogs (still developing) is a great resource and means for inspiration. We also like this list because it is truly global.
