Top 50 Graphic Design Blogs


June 21, 2011ShowCases7 Comments

It’s not easy finding talented graphic designers, but it’s fair to say the best have a healthy online presence. So to make things easier, here I present my Top 50 Graphic Design Blogs. I’ve categorised them by Google PageRank (PR) — Google’s way of determining the authority of a website.

*Don’t read too much into the PageRank, as all of these sites contain excellent articles, with some blogs having an authority all on their own.
