Great collection, Jessica. I recently stumbled on Pearsonified myself. Working through some of your other suggestions now. I love how the sites themselves are such works of art – seems pretty fitting for design blogs!
Yup! When we sat down to come up with a feature image for this post, we realized that the blog designs themselves would be perfect for displaying how great theylook!
Great post! We’ll definitely be following some of these blogs into 2013. Thanks for sharing!
No problem! Glad they’ll be of use to you!
Awesome listing, lots of my faves listed!
Glad you liked them!
You have given an awesome list of design blogs. Although all are great in its content and popularity but I personally love Sixrevisions, Designrfix and Abduzeedo. These are great in providing images for designing from scratch also.
Good to hear Linda! We really love those specifically too
I’m too lazy to click and bookmark 50 times so I just bookmarked this post.
Too bad Vector Tips is on a hiatus
Agreed! I’m sad it’s on hiatus but it’s still one of the best sources on the web for vector-centric design
I’d like to add http://designchat.info to that list. I do live chat shows with an audience and record them. It’s called DesignChat and its a lot of fun. Some previous guests include Milton Glaser, Debbie Millman, Jason Fried, Jessica Hische, Carlos Segura, Steven Heller, and the list goes on. 108 episodes as of tonight. Please check it out and say hi to us on Twitter @designchat.
Thanks again for making this awesome list.
Thanks for that recommendation Ryan! We’ll check it out and definitely update our list
I think Cnet News blog should be in this list rest of the list is good too…
Yeah, CNN’s blog has some great fresh news on the latest in our industry!
Lovely collection of beautiful sites posted on a really cool site that I’m gonna book mark. really inspirational!
Great to hear!

When I first started as a freelancer I picked up free MOU contract template from 24 ways and have been using it for all of my legal agreements since. Abduzeedo has always been there to help me buff up on my ACS skills too. They’re definitely at the top of my list, as they’re shown here. Thanks Jessica!
