Every month HOW scours the web and pours through submissions from creatives to discover the top design websites. We’re looking for the best promo sites of talented designers and illustrators, as well as design tools, resources and fun sites for creative time-outs.
Photographer John Madere’s site showcases lots of wonderful portraits, but it’s on his blog that they truly come alive with back stories and behind-the-scenes shots. Be sure to check out all his wonderful portraits of designers including Milton Glaser, Stefan Sagmeister and Michael Bierut.
This very simple self-promo site houses some amazing design work from recent MICA MFA grad Eric Mortensen, who is currently looking to move his creative enterprise to Brooklyn.
This is an awesome creativity challenge by designer Jenny Volvovski where she redesigns the cover for any book she reads. The rules are: green/black/white for color, Futura/typewriter/handwriting for text and scanned paper/drawing for the image. But sometimes she breaks the rules.
This elegant site promotes the services of British designer Gary Cooke, whose life is dedicated to creativity. For nearly 30 years he ran a successful agency in London, before starting Cooke With An E in 2011.
- Remember to submit a site you think should be included in this list of top design websites next month.
