1. Elegant Themes
This is the best blog for web designers I’ve ever read. Every blog they put out seems to answer a question I had, am currently having, or will have in a week.
The topics of their articles are so in tune with my own questions as a web designer that I’m starting to think they are tracking my search history. I kid.
But seriously, these guys are mind readers for young and old web designers alike, giving you quality information on how to improve your web design skills, handle clients, maximize time management and dominate your niche.
As a web designer, this is one of those blogs that just needs to sit in favorites. I reference Awwwards almost every week for web design inspiration.
They feature some of the best, most clean, designs in the digital world and within five minutes will have you pumping out ideas for world-class designs.
A daily roundup of phenomenal design samples, with everything from illustrations to daily UX challenges. This is one of the best places for instant inspiration for graphic design and website layouts.
Most of the best and well recognized designers dribble here daily. It’s an amazing place.
8. Smashing Magazine
As their description says, Smashing Magazine is a great online resource for web designers and developers to improve their techniques and strive for best practice web design.
They produce textbook quality info and are great if you’re looking to improve your web design skills in your off time.
10. Patrick McNeil
Normally I hate when web designers use their own name for a website. But, I make an exception for such narcissism in the case of Patrick McNeil.
He’s a technical guy, who prefers analyzing the code and design heavy ends of web design, but right up their with some of the best bloggers.
