New Design Blogs

With the exception of NetDiver, I don’t go to CSS/’cool website’ showcases for ideas – I’ve discovered a raft of great design blogs that are providing me with a fresh source of inspiration.

Here are my current favourites:

  • Happy Mundane -celebrating good design in the ordinary and everyday. Hits the spot everytime.
  • Waterhalo – A sketchbook based journal. I wish I could find time to do something like this!
  • design*sponge & MocoLoco – biased towards furnishings. Great for colour and shape ideas especially.
  • – this probably doesn’t count as a blog, more of showcase (hah!) of well designed products. Don’t bother with the bizarre RSS feed, I have this saved as my homepage to check it regularly.

Plus, from the comments, there’s another gem! A big thanks to Rachel for Prints & Pattern, and awesome supply of colour, shape/pattern ideas. Also, Dan Malls link for Daily Type. Yum!, my iPhoto scrapbook is bulging!!

The Hickensian is the journal of Jon Hicks, one half of the creative partnership Hicksdesign. Take a look at the work we do.
