Between the Alt Summit for design bloggers and my work at Federated Media, I’ve been lucky to work with more than a few talented publishers. Their work speaks for itself, so I won’t be too long-winded in reflecting on five who have particularly inspired me in this crazy ecosystem. In no particular order, they are:
Victoria Smith, SFGirlByBay: The work of the art director turned poster designer turned design blogger is a treat. Saying Victoria has an eye for color is a complete understatement, and she knows modern furniture like no one else.
Shayna Kulik, Pattern Pulp: While many of my favorite bloggers live in the Bay (call me localist), NY trend forecaster Shayna creates bright daily posts that I can’t stop coming by for. Her work is punchy and informative, and you’ll be glad you were sent to see it.
David Pescovitz, BoingBoing: Whether writing about Cindy Sherman posts on sale or citizen science projects, I always learn from Pesco’s work on the tech and life wonders site. A researcher at the Institute for the Future, I’d love to take a science writing class from him.
Zem Joaquin, ecofabulous: Stylishness and sustainability are the core passions of Ms. Joaquin, and I’m yet to meet anyone else who makes conscious decision making so fun. Under the creative direction of Caitlin Bristol, Zem’s ecofabulous is a great resource for safe cosmetics, home wares, and apparel (if you’ve looked at my site searches for the past week, at least). I’m lucky to learn from them.
Audrey Watters, Hack Education: The ed-tech advocate’s coverage has been my go to source as I explore more in education entrepreneurship. Her weekly news roundups aren’t like anyone else’s, and you’d be remiss not to start following her.
