This is a site that we just created. It's dead-simple, and we've tried to remove every element that isn't necessary. I like to describe it as "digg for those in advertising, marketing, and design". If you have a relevant story to share, please do so; alternately, feel free to drop by and get the scoop on what's going on in the industry. :-) http://www.undrln.com
Signal vs. Noise, a weblog by 37signals about design, business, experience, simplicity, the web, culture, and more. Established 1999 in Chicago. http://37signals.com/svn/
The Aussie site that for me started it all for me. They also have a travelling annual exhibition that if you are anywhere near one of its stops, make it a point to see it!? You can also submit artwork to it for this year till November 30th. Quite an honor to get your work selected for it so give it a shot! One of the greatest site names as well I might add! http://www.designiskinky.net
Tell us what you think....
You two...I was just saying...everyone likes design blogs. everyone likes nipples. why not combine them. maybe i should start a tumblr for that.
Yeah, Dudlik! I second that emotion! Enough with the nipples.
Stop talking about nipples Dudlik. You're freaking all of us out. ;-)
We should somehow combine them into design blogger's nipple slips. Get a picture of kottke, armin vit, the people @ design observer, all just like "whoops" while writing awesome stuff.
That's the beauty of the MakeFive community. It affords everyone the opportunity to voice their opinions. For people like you, there are the more high-brow discussions, and for laypeople like me, there are nipple slips. ;-)
Hey Eric, Topics like these are what Make five should be promoting. If the voting and discussions and the topics introduce people to what they do not know about it keeps the dialougue fresh and engaging. It is hard for me to promote Make five when 90% of the topics are center around things like "Nipple Slips". I hang with a primarily older and highly educated design, writing and art crowd in the NYC area and they wouldn't make it past day 2 with alot of the stupid topics and comments that go on around here. I just have an extreme sense of humor and find some of the bickering entertaining! Just some feed back!?
You 2 are fucking hilarious!!!~! I crack up every time I read conversations between you 2!
No it shouldn't.
http://www.MindSmack.com/blog should be in the top 5 as well.
I've heard of very few of these, and the ones I read aren't listed. I'll be checking the ones I haven't seen before soon!
