When it comes to popular interest blogs, design and photography are huge ones. But with literally thousands of blogs and websites to weed through, which ones are worth checking out on a regular basis? We went to the Digital Arts & Design department and asked Lab Specialists Carson Wampler and Gary Nusinov and Course Director Lesley Silvia – all faculty members with a passion for photography – what some of their favorite websites were. Check out some of their picks below.
99u. “A lot of what I look at these days is not strictly photography, but general art and design. This site has really good articles on the process, the life, and the theories behind being a designer.” –Lesley
Abduzeedo Design Inspiration & Tutorials. “A good collection of current and upcoming designers, plus tutorials on how to get a similar look.” –Lesley
Agonistica Cult of Photography. “Focuses on photography as art and tends to feature portfolio work over articles. It’s visually and artistically stimulating.” –Gary
Design Milk. “Really good collection of cutting-edge design.” –Lesley
It’s Nice That. “Most of the photography I come across is delivered via blogs/websites that curate many types of media. This site stands out for me and features both newly discovered and seasoned photographers.” –Carson
PetaPixel. “The site tends to focus on technical issues surrounding digital photography and new technology. It satisfies the photo geek in me.” –Gary
Swiss Miss. “This is not only a really good collection of well thought out design, but the site also has some great quotes to reflect on and articles about the design process.” –Lesley
