Happy are those who are constantly visually pleased. That’s why good designs exist. This site jolts down not one, not two, but eighty design blogs that can help people propel their design-savvy mind.
At first, I was skeptical. The pink lady in the top left corner with bad typography of the logo (and seemingly lo-res as well) is just very annoying that I doubt this website could give trusted design blogs. Since I’ve seen lots of design blogs, I was also skeptical because it usually contains a plethora of images that show creative packaging and creative ads that are often repeatedly shown in several different sites.
I skimmed through the post and all I can think of in the beginning was “why would people show header images and links only without further explanation of the difference between one site and another?” I hated it. I hated the fact that the post doesn’t elaborate how a specific site could help enhance creativity. What is the uniqueness of the site?
When I was about to close, I scrolled up again and saw this one text “Logos & Typography”. I LOVE TYPOGRAPHY! Hence, I stopped scrolling randomly and clicked on the most convincing site seen through its header image: Logo Design Love.
It was full of good discussion on logos and how logos can be really powerful in branding. Additionally, its design is so simplistic and easy on the eyes! I browsed through several article titles and in fact, I am interested by many articles there. Satisfied by Logo Design Love, I continue clicking on other sites that fall under the logos & typography category.
Second encounter was ilovetypography. As a typography enthusiast, my hopes are set high yet I forced my expectations to be low as I was already too skeptical with people who claim to have good design yet still put annoying colors and bad typeface.
Was I satisfied? Very much.
Again, the site design was so simple that the fonts and all typography the site wants to highlight becomes more seen and more awe-inspiring. It has this tab titled “Font Game” that I was so excited to download it on my smartphone.
Now enough with the typography and proceeding to the creativeopera site. I see that the site divided the design blogs into several categories, which are:
- Web Development/Code
- Logos & Typography
- Advice & Discussion
- Freebies & Giveaways
Personally, I am interested in the Freebies (duh, who doesn’t?) and typography. So, my initial judgment was incorrect, since I didn’t really browse through the sites. After site-walking, I found the post useful!
