Meet the Design Ambassadors! (Part 2)

A little while back, we started looking for the next big design bloggers to be our first-ever Design Ambassadors. And we found them! We picked 10 great graphic design bloggers to be our Design Ambassadors, and you can find their links in the right sidebar of this blog. We introduced you to some of the Ambassadors a little while ago, and here are three more of them:
