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.
In particular, I feel like there’s a tone of resources that most people don’t know about and are missing out.
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.

You know the expression: the best design is the invisible one. And as cliché, as it might seem, we all tend to agree on it.
