Plastic is a concern for everyone. Designers, scientists, and researchers are constantly trying to find solutions and alternatives to this great pollutant.
But long before it was a massive threat against the Earth’s longevity, plastic was an exciting material that shaped Human development in more than one way.
Industrial designers were fascinated with its infinite potential, and how it could add new value.
Almost two years ago, Melted was just being born, and I wanted my first post to be about what it meant to be a professional designer.
In all truth, I’m still the same self-taught designer that I was back then, except, that now I have professional experience and a new perspective.
How did I get here? Well, I was stubborn. Even though I felt like giving up, I didn’t.

Are you the type of person that absorve websites to stay informed about what’s going on in the rest of the design community?
Or you like to check those few blogs that you know and rely on when you’re having a less inspiring day.

For this reason, I decided to put together a list of 40 websites (some are blogs, some are online publications, and others fit into another category). I divided them into themes so that you can skip to the ones that interest you the most.
