127 RSS Feeds That All Designers Should Subscribe To

I subscribe to a lot of RSS feeds; so many in fact, that I could spend hours browsing through my feed reader.  I love feeds because they put all my favorite sites into one place.  Below is a list of RSS feeds that I subscribe to and recommend to all my readers.  I am hoping that this list can become a complete and comprehensive list of feeds for design sites so don’t hesitate to suggest a site that I may have missed.

Max from DesignShard was kind enough to create an OPML file for you guys to use instead of having to subscribe to each site one-by-one.  You can download the file here.

    Setting up a link to an OPML feed with all of these would be super! Then I could just import into a netvibes tab :)

    Great list, just added to my bookmarks. Thanks for sharing, some of them are new to me. Only one question… How to keep up in my reader with this much inspiration :)

    110 RSS Feeds That All Designers Should

    Check out this list of 110 RSS feeds that all designers should subscribe to.

    November 4, 2008 at 10:11 AM
  • Nathan Beck

    What a list! I’d have to say I’m only subscribed to about 20 of those. I’m a big fan of David Airey, Just Creative Design and Smashing Magazine.
    But hey, aren’t you missing
    (Oh I’m sorry that’s a shameful plug…)

    November 4, 2008 at 11:09 AM
  • Chris Ritke

    Thanks for all the links! I just started going through them and subscribing and was thinking: hmmmm…. it would be great if I could just import an OPML file of all these. Sometimes I actually prefer just subscribing and then weeding out the ones I don’t want after getting a feel for them.

    November 4, 2008 at 11:18 AM

  • Adam

    Curious, why did you have AudioTUTS on the list? Granted, I love that network, but I’m quite certain your list is geared towards the graphic/web persuasion.
    I actually just wrote an article here very similar to yours, also outlining great sites to subscribe to. However, I think it is counter-productive to suggest people should subscribe to over 100 feeds because honestly, how many articles can you read in a day? At what point do you have too many feeds in your repository?
    I suggested 10, because at some point you find sites recycling the same information, not to mention designers do not have enough time on their hands to peruse hundreds of articles in a day. Even if you were paid to read them, I’m quite certain 121 would be overkill. Nonetheless, what we can take away from this is that we have the CHOICE to pick and choose which of these 121 we want to make our top 10, and that’s probably better that you provide more choices, than me simply rationalizing why you should prune it down to 10.
    Good list :)

    Well done for compiling this collection. I am a subscriber to many of these feeds and find them to be a great read on a regular basis.
    Here is the feed for my blog in case you’re interested in adding it to the list

    Awesome list, Just thinking how I am going to add all these feeds without clicking on them all manually. Any suggestions?

    November 5, 2008 at 5:48 AM
  • Carl

    I would be nice to have a top 10 or something, just the sheer amount is going to put me off as wouldnt have the time to check them all…

    November 5, 2008 at 6:03 AM
  • Grant Friedman

    I just updated the list again. We’re now at 124 feeds. @adam I added websites that interest me. AUDIOTUTS might not be a typical design sites but I’ve always been interested in music so I follow that feed. There are certainly enough feeds in this list to pick and choose what you subscribe to. I’m just trying to give people options. I agree with many of you that subscribing to 124 feeds can be a little overwhelming. My feed reader is crazy. Once a month I go through it when I do the VECTORTUTS monthly wrap and it takes me a good 4-5 hours to browse through it all but it gives me such a great overview of what’s happening in the community.

    What a big list, thanks for sharing. Outlining a top 10 as others have said sounds like a great idea – I can’t subscribe to 120+ at once – have to fit in some designing inbetween reading it!

    It would be really cool if you could include the Liquidicity blog by GoSquared on there – we’ve got some great icons and reference sheets that should prove really useful to a lot of the folks here.

    It’s too much, what to you want me to do? add a 127 feeds, spend 10 hours per day reading everything? what’s the point? I rather add every useful site to and enter when I need something or have time to spent.

    November 5, 2008 at 11:56 AM
  • Aaron

    Here from digg…
    Thanks for the list, however, there’s a lot of crap on these sites (lists of links to other sites, low quality artwork, little or no engaging content or articles..).
    In the future, try combing through the sites before adding them to your list or at least write a basic description of each site’s general content topic or rate them so we don’t have to waste our time sifting out the crap ourselves. Good content is the point of these list collections, right?
    This list seems like an attempt to attract traffic by adding as many feeds as possible, crap or not. Unprofessional.

    i should add that the opml generating script will dynamically detect and add new feeds that are suggested in these comments to the opml file.
