Posts about Blogs
This post by writer and artist Austin Kleon makes me want to get into a more routine blogging habit.
These are a few more design blogs to follow that I’ve been enjoying recently. Take a look at them below!
- Booooooom is a high-quality contemporary art blog, covering a relatively broad scope of topics and creative talent from around the world. The thing that makes this blog great is that you can tell almost immediately the author prioritizes quality over quantity. The illustration and photography pages, in particular, you could spend hours scrolling through. My favorite way to browse this blog’s content is on their Instagram account, however.
- AIGA’s blog, Eye on Design, is becoming a massively essential resource for me to gain knowledge and inspiration about what’s out there in the design world. With insightful and engaging articles, this blog is a must-read for students, too. There are many sections to browse through, such as opinion, design news, articles about workplaces, and graphic design specific topics from packaging to UI + UX design. Because of the visual nature of the content, I also highly recommend the @aigaeyeondesign Instagram feed.
- My all-time favorite Tumblr blog is This isn’t happiness. The blog has somewhat of a cult-like following, and as one of the top 100 overall blogs on the web, it’s even been written up in places like The New York Times, The Huffington Post, Yahoo, and BuzzFeed. What I love most about the blog is how satisfying it is to look at and enjoy. The posts may seem pessimistic and strange at first, but then you start noticing the beauty and sensibility of it all. Ultimately, reading this so-called “art scrapbook” feels like a thrill that only keeps getting better.
