10 Resources Designers Need to Know About Now

If you can spot a pixel out of place at 1280×1024 this is for you. I researched design resources you should know about now. I can’t mention them all in a minute but I’ll give it a shot.

You’ve probably already joined 9rules.com but have you added the design-feed.net opml file to your feed reader? Try it.

Smashing Magazine has? a great? post? of 5 questions for? 35 designers. In it you’ll find top designer’s picks of online and print magazines? we read? regularly. Resources like, Design Observer, Pingmag.jp, UX Magazine? and Fontblog.de.

You already know about HOW Magazine but have you checked out the new HOW Blog? A List Apart is a must read for web designers and Signal vs. Noise at 37signals.com is inspiring and their? offerings are sweet like candy.

Big thanks? for the? free vector art at BitBox.com? and once again big thanks to Adobe for Kuler. I love this tool!

Of course reading, digesting and sometimes mimicking the designs of the best designers in the world is inspiring but there’s nothing quite like returning to the? woods to design your life.

From Aloha Workshops where? we’re surrounded by perfect design everyday this is Brent Norris for the World Organization of Webmasters and the Wow Technology Minute.
