As a web designer, it’s important to be “in the know” – you have to stay current with industry trends and new technological advancements to stay relevant.
It is helpful to learn and discover new techniques from other experts in your field. To save you time browsing through endless lists of design blogs (you’re welcome, by the way!), Aviio Digital has compiled a list of the most innovative and resourceful blogs for web designers:
Smashing Magazine is a reputable blog with a focus on design and development. Their posts cover everything from trend research to the latest industry news.
Co.Design is one of the most popular online blogs; more than one-million viewers check it out each month. Their main focus is how design and business intersect and how to make the most out of this relationship for your business.
Codrops generates content that focuses on tutorials, free giveaways, blueprints, and other content based on new trends and design/development techniques. The blog isn’t updated as often as the others on this list but still offers valuable insights.
CSS – Tricks
CSS-Tricks was originally created to help educate designers and developers all about CSS. However, the blog now covers topics that cover the entire design and development spectrum.
Yoast – SEO
Yoast has created an entire blog based on search engine optimization (SEO), which is vital for businesses wanting to be visible to their audiences online. Full of tips, tricks, and new techniques, this blog is a designer/developer’s dream come true.
