Okay, I worked on this list at various times over the last couple of months, so some of the graphics will be outdated. However, I do expect that I will expand upon this list and add other sites on at a later date. There are plenty of quality design blogs out there, so if I missed your blog, it may get added on the next revision :)

Why not take a look at one of these Articles...

  1. Jacob Cass says:

    Thank you for the inclusion Andrew, it’s interesting to see them all side by side like this!
    .-= Jacob Cass´s last blog ..“Make Beautiful Things” – Tips from Saul Bass =-.

  2. @Jacob → No worries. Hope you’re doing well in NYC :)

  3. Duane says:

    Great to compare all the logos side by side.
    Some are terrific, some verging on terrible.
    You know what would be really interesting – a poll to rank them ;)
    .-= Duane´s last blog ..10 Inspirational Japanese Digital Illustrators and Artists =-.

  4. @Duane → A pole would be interesting, but the idea behind the article is mainly to list the blogs. Their branding is present to add more depth to an otherwise “standard list”.

    If I had a poll, I wouldn’t want the backlash over the “terrible logos” you mention ;)

  5. I think what surprises me is if these people are blogging about quality design, they should be able to recognize what works (or doesn’t work) on their own sites / branding.
    .-= Amy Haywood´s last blog ..Everything I need to know about Social Networking Contradicts what I Learned in Kindergarten =-.

  6. Just awesome sites, thanks for sharing!
    .-= Hian Battiston´s last blog ..Atualização Portfolio! =-.

  7. Hi,

    .. love the fact that you show the brand identity of each of these blogging sites. The comparison although is quite shocking, to be honest ;-P

    But, a good fresh insight how to present a list of links.

    And also thanks for sharing, some blogs are new to me. Cheers & Ciao …

  8. Great to see a huge mixture of different design styles. Hopefully in the future, http://www.addtodesign.com will be added. :)

  9. Marnie B says:

    I’m trawling through design blogs at the moment, looking for some decent ones to add to my feeds – so thanks for the list! You’ve saved me some time. ;)

  10. Great post. Like Jacob said, it’s very interesting to see them all in a list like this. Love it!

  11. Rob Cubbon says:

    Great list. And I must have visited at least 70% of them. Thank you for including me. The post must have been very time-consuming to make. Hope all’s well with you.

  12. Wow, thanks for including me Andrew, much appreciated, some great blogs here!

    Awesome roundup! Nice to have this perspective on the design blogs :) Thanks Andrew!

  14. Marco says:

    Great to see al these logos in one complete list – although I would love to be included, I think I’ll need to redesign my logo first.

    Thanks for sharing!

  15. I’ve written for a lot of them sites, yet my own hasn’t got on the list! http://circleboxblog.com/ :)

  16. Rob Bowen says:

    hey Andrew, really great list of sites! It was an unexpected honor to see both Arbenting and Dead Wings up there among so much great company. We really appreciate the inclusions!

  17. Hi Andrew, thanks a million for including Laughing Lion Design in this great list. Mine’s changed a *tiny* bit since the one featured here but it’s almost the same.

    Thanks again

    great article, thanks for the resource!

  19. @Hian, Mathew, Marnie, ‘AG’, Gareth, Sneh & lukasz → Glad you found the list useful.

    @Rob C → Yeah, took ages. Glad I didn’t do it all in one sitting, or it have taken me a good 24 hours, lol.

    @Amy → Yeah, I see your point, but they must have their reasons…

    @Gonzo → I found it quite interesting myself once I finally compiled the list and reviewed them all. There’s a whole range and spectrum of design ideas.

    @Marco → There are at least 300 great design blogs on the web, but unfortunately, I’m not aware of them all – including yours ;) I’ve just reviewed your site, and it will be in the expanded list later on this year.

    @Callum → Just reviewed yours too, although I had never stumbled across it before now. It will make the next revision :)

    @Rob B → No worries, hope it helps awareness of your sites.

    @Jennifer → I think I took a snapshot of your site a couple on month back. There’s a few outdated ones, but I will try update them on the next revision :)

  20. Shikeb Ali says:

    WOW…. great collection… I wish I could add one more in this list … :)

  21. Anthony says:

    Alot of good logos here. But ALOT of bad ones too.

  25. 100 Fantastic Design Blogs…

    Here is a fantastic list I have put together, showing 100 Design Blogs with their branding logos. They are shown in alphabetical order……

  26. Matt says:

    They got some incredible logos for their site. It looks fantastic. I wish I had one of these logos for my site. By the way Thanks.

  27. Garlak says:

    Very good list Andrew

  28. Calgary says:

    Awesome list, Andrew! Tonnes to subscribe to now!

  29. Craig says:

    Great collection of design blogs with their logos, really great to see them layed out like this, and think that’s a great idea to add to this list in the future!

  30. Thanks for the list Andrew – lots more for me to check out there! :)

  31. Great and Fabulous Logo Collections!

  32. Nice but why not highlight 10 your favorites or the best in your opinion, who is going to check 100 links? I know that most people run there where is more (probably they think more is better) but smaller lists are more practical.

  33. Awesome collection of Blogs and Logos. Truly inspiring!

  34. I am inspired. Thanks for this list!
