Design and photography may be many thousands of years younger as art forms, but they have more in common with writing than you might think at first. All these means of expression are great at capturing life’s moments in a way that strongly appeals to us.
So, it’s no surprise that design and photography blogs have boomed in recent years, with the sheer range of examples reaching overwhelming proportions. Anyone looking to get into this blogosphere space will seriously have their work cut out for them.
In order to find the genuine diamonds in the rough, someone new to the scene will typically have to trawl through a lot of very poor and average material first. While this is arguably part of the blogging thing, it can also be a little challenging.
There’s something adventurous and intrepid about spending an afternoon going through a lot of obscure material and sifting your way through to the occasional gem. No doubt some folks enjoy that sort of journey, finding hidden rewards in the internet’s wilderness.
But, there will also be many folks who simply want to go straight to the best and most innovative blogs. For people who are less interested in the internet as an adventure and more interested in the topic at hand, it helps to have someone else do the trawling.
For this reason, we have compiled a list of some of the very best design and photography blogs the web has to offer. The basic idea is to cut through the dull and the ordinary and go right for the really interesting stuff. We think we’ve achieved this goal below.
