A new post on this site? Weird, I know! Too bad it’s another list. Following a previous theme on this blog, here’s another round-up about another 10 websites I couldn’t live without. This list will also contain websites previously mentioned if they still are integral to my job and life. Here we go!

Brand New
A very unique branding and logo development website. It features all the new brands and re-brands coming out. The writer is very intelligent and even though a little harsh sometimes, (in fact, all of the commentators seem to be quite “snooty” as well) it does not detract from the overall service of showcasing all the new brands out there.

A very cool site showcasing all the new devices, gadgets and “gizmos”. There’s web stuff, technology and more. It is part of the GAWKER network and also features sites like the all popular Kotaku and Lifehacker which is also included in this post.

Planet Half-Life
As most of you know that read this, I am a very huge gamer – as if you couldn’t guess by the domain. I am obsessed with the Half-Life series and have been since I was 13 years old when I got the original Half-Life in 1998 and fell in love. Even though the site has dwindled in updates in the recent years, it is still a good source of community, information and news within the Half-Life community.

Photoshop Disasters
A great source of laughter, questioning, and sometimes even results in a “face-palm”. Although the owner/writer sometimes misses the mark (he also likes to joke about it), it’s still a great resource for a good laugh then and again.

As posted in my previous post, this has made it on the list again. The writer does a great job of rounding up the best resources for web designers and developers. I find something new every time I look on the site, which is good because I check it about once every week which fits within the updates of the site quite nicely.

VBS is a network of documentaries and other obscure, cool and sometimes plain-weird videos. I fell in love with this website because it has become like an alternative to cable for me, which is good, because I haven’t had cable for almost 2 years now. GOOD RIDDANCE! There’s plenty to watch, and there’s plenty of subculturism to go around.

Another gaming-related resource. Where would any gamer be without the all seeing gaming eye that is known as Kotaku? Seriously, if you are a hardcore gamer, or even somebody that games you need to bookmark this site, read it, live it, DIE WITH IT!

Smashing Magazine
Another one that has been mentioned on a previous post but still remains to be the ultimate source of web design and development to me. Overall, it’s a great inspiration and a great way to keep on trends on the web which is important in my line of work.

The always lewd and rude writer and Vince Mancini keeps it in check with his movie blog that keeps me updated on all the newest movie-related news. His sarcastic and facetious style of writing ensures you a laugh with a side of celebrity gossip, movie news and everything else “Hollywood”.

Like I stated above, here’s another gem from the GAWKER network. This one is focused more on saving money with a dash of technology. Like Gizmodo there’s plenty of news within the website and technology sector but this is more focused on “hacking your life”, which means getting the most out of your life and paying/costing you less for it.

Hmm, It seems I have missed a couple sites off my speed dial. I guess that means there will be another update sometime in the future!

I know I barely write anything here anymore, but I thought I would share this list. Who doesn’t love a good list?

I work professionally as both a designer and web developer. This list of 15 links are websites/blogs I frequent on a daily basis for inspiration, how-to’s and generally sites that stave off the boredom. This list isn’t in any specific order.

QBN is a great source for both design job postings and inspiration. There’s new featured sites/articles daily and also a big community showing off other links and interesting art-design related content.

Bittbox is all about finding good (and mostly free) resources for designers. It’s not quite updated everyday, but it’s still good to check it out everyday in case something new is posted. Whether you’re looking for good fonts, stock textures, stock vectors, and much more, there is tons of it on this site, usually for free.

Uncrate is all about the newest stuff. Whether you’re into furniture, gadgets, music, cars, this site has all the newest cool “things” that are available to buy.

Subtraction is a blog written by Khoi Vinh, a very inspirational designer working at NYTimes.com. Not only can this guy design but he can also write, very well (better than me). It’s not always updated daily, but there is a huge, and I mean HUGE archive section on his writings. Topics range from Art, Design, Computers, Net/Pop Culture, Web Design and more.

Yay! Monday!
Yay! Monday! is a weekly collection of websites, art, photography, design and video by Chris Kalani. He didn’t dig my UNDATA project, but i’m not bitter.

Design Observer
Design Observer is definitely a good read, when you are in the mood to read. The articles here are top notch; expert writing staff. The topics vary quite erratically, but they are always interesting and they always make me think at the end of the read. This site also has a huge archive of writings.

Design You Trust
Design You Trust is a design blog for the masses. Any designer or artist is able to register and post a new blog about their own work, work they find inspirational or pretty much anything design or art related. Despite the freedom expressed here, the posts seem to be all very good (save a few), and very inspirational.

A List Apart
A List Apart is another one of those good, top quality reads, especially for those in the web design field. Expert writing staff. The archive on this site is also huge. “For People Who Make Websites”.

The “Favourite Website Awards” is a daily updated website that features… websites. Lots of the websites featured on this site are top notch inspirations. Many are very flash heavy; the site itself is made in flash. This website has a great archive, and it’s fun to view what was hip in web design a few years ago.

Web Designer Wall
Web Designer Wall is all about showcasing the latest “web trends” in a very informational fashion. The tutorials featured here are very personalized, which is probably the reason it doesn’t get updated frequently, but when it does, the articles are always great. A website by Nick La.

Cool Hunting
Cool Hunting is a good resource to find out all the new and “cool” design and art related things going on. The items shown are usually very design/art culture orientated. It’s kind of like a mix between Uncrate and Design You Trust, two sites also featured on this list.

Smashing Magazine
Smashing Magazine is one of those must-reads for any graphic or web designer. There’s tons of inspirational material, design resources (most of them free), and lots and lots of lists about many different subjects.

etc. Is probably one of the best web resources out there. This site loves lists, tons and tons of useful lists on CSS, HTML, JavaScript, Web Development Tips, and etc. (pun intended). Don’t let the sub domain address fool you, this is one serious web site.

Good-Tutorials is a website dedicated to, well you guessed it… tutorials! There’s thousands of tutorials on here for lots of different software and languages including CSS, HTML, JavaScript, Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, and more. I know there’s lots of good tutorial websites out there (another pun intended) but I prefer this one due to how the main page is layed out.

N.Design Studio
Another one by Nick La focusing on blogging and a section of tutorials and freebies concerning mostly Illustrator and Dreamweaver. Make sure you check out the Design Resources page.

Well that’s it for now. I’m sure there’s lots more out there that I should of added, but didn’t. Maybe I’ll post some images later.
