Last year I was contacted by the Spanish publishing company Maomao Publications, to contribute to their new book, Blogs: Mad About Design.
Blog, weblog, logbook Ö these are words of our time, it felt like they appeared all over the place overnight. Although blogs exist since the end of the 90s, they definitely flourished in 2004. The desire to tell stories, to develop thought through dialogue was always there, so weblogs became a favorite tool to do so. It is as simple to create and publish a blog as it is to check your emails, therefore, content is what really makes the difference. Blogs: mad about design is a shortcut through the web jungle to the most interesting and exciting blogs related to graphic design.
After a back and forth, Maomao decided to include a range of banners from DWB. Scrambling around, I shot off permission emails. Exciting, yes? Absolutely. I’m not sure which banners will be included. I’m not even sure how many. Yet. But I’ll be sure to shout about it here when I do. Promise.
And since we’re on the subject, below is a sneak peek of future features.
Note: The banners are shown in order of arrival (artwork, photos, completed banners). The links take you to the individual blogs.
If your blog has been featured without a banner, please go to the submit page for instructions.
If you are interested in getting your blog featured, please read the instructions on the submit page.
And who knows, maybe there’ll be another blogging book in need of blogger banner designs.
