Top 10 Websites for Designers—Great Typography, Images, Motion

No April Fool’s jokes here—in this month’s “Top 10” websites for designers, you’ll find websites featuring great typography, images and motion that’ll grab your attention, plus a handful of sites offering design tips, tidbits and inspiration.

[If you enjoy this monthly roundup, you’ve likely gathered some inspiration from the featured websites. We feel compelled to mention that PRINT’s Regional Design Annual is another fantastic resource from which to draw inspiration. Not only that, but having your work featured in the industry’s most prestigious and well-respected American design competition would allow you to inspire others—tens of thousands of art directors, studios and creative professionals, in particular. We can’t help but mention, too, that today is the deadline!]
