80+ Must-Read Design Blogs to Enhance your Creativity and your Career

There are hundreds of design blogs online. I have thoughtfully chosen over 80 of my absolute favorites for this must-read list and have categorized them for easy navigation. Which do you like best?

This list was compiled slowly. I’ve been bookmarking my favorite blog posts for months, and in doing so, have visited the same useful design blogs over and over. Those blogs that showed up again and again in my bookmarking system were the ones that made this talented list. These are the sites that I have found offer the highest quality content to their readers.

I’ve categorized each of the blogs into one of ten main categories: All-in-One, Inspiration, Tutorials, Web Development/Code, Freelance, Logos & Typography, Advice & Discussion, Freebies & Giveaways, Blogging, and Micro-Blogs/Links. That does not mean that the blog doesn’t offer anything else. It just means that the blog has a main focus. Creative Opera, for example, really focuses on giving advice to new designers or design students. But, we offer many other things as well — and have plans to expand greatly in the upcoming months. I’m not trying to pigeonhole anyone, I just want to make it easier for you to find what you are looking for. Hopefully you’ll be able to find a few blogs here that will be helpful to you in your design career. As an added bonus, I’ve chosen one of my favorite posts from each to share with you. Enjoy!

Don’t fear if your favorite blog hasn’t been included. I selected those that I thought best fit this post, but bookmarked the others for two upcoming posts, one on new (up-and-coming) blogs, and one on design magazines (more news-related, less bloggy).

I really appreciate you all stopping by, and I’m so glad that you’re enjoying the list. If you have more suggestions or favorite blogs, please continue to list them in the comments, and I’ll add them or bookmark them for future posts.
