Follow Top Graphic Designers on Twitter to Boost Your Career
From North Onion, a sweet way to wake up on a Tuesday morning…
We strongly encourage you to follow the feeds and visit the blogs of these top-tier artists, but offer a word of warning: featured Twitterbugs have a knack for finding projects so compelling that a person could be distracted from actual work for several hours at a time. Proceed carefully….
Agreed. There are certainly a great number of designers on that list. Btw – if you do plan on following me, please go for @nospec over @thecatat7. The NO!SPEC Campaign is where I spend most of my time these days as there just isn’t enough time to do it all.
Thanks for the follow in advance. And a thanks goes to Rebecca Palmer for supporting the design industry.

Since I launched The Creative Pathfinder on Lateral Action last week, over 1,200 students have signed up. It would be great if you could join us on the journey…
Icograda Design Week in Vancouver 2010 is a pan-disciplinary conference featuring some of world’s foremost experts from various design disciplines. The theme of “design currency” is a challenge to all who attend, as the speakers intend to challenge paradigms and shatter assumptions about what design is.
This event will not merely be design stars on stage showing off their portfolios, but rather an exploration of craftsmanship, clarity, functionality, social contribution, sustainability, beauty and results, all with the intent to reshape our understanding of the value of design and its impact on communication, culture, and commerce.
Call for nominations for a “next generation” speaker
Hi all. Design Week Vancouver would like your help. They have a fabulous list of speakers arranged, but would like your opinion on just one more:
Let us know a person you’d like to nominate who is under 30 and would do a great job at representing the ‘next generation voice’. We can’t promise anything, but we’ll do our best to bring them to our stage in Vancouver.
