We often trawl the web to find great content to share via our clients' channels, as well as our own. Even just finding time in our lunch breaks to soak up some art and design inspiration keeps us happy.
Creativity is, after all, what we're passionate about. And it makes sense to keep abreast of everything that's happening in the creative industries. From interiors and architecture to graphic design, art and culture, here are some of our favourite go-to creative blogs and magazines. (Aside from our own publication, Creative Boom, of course.)
Known as the American magazine of contemporary global design, Surface is a solid source of inspiration for architecture, art, design, fashion and travel, with a focus on "how these fields shape and are shaped by contemporary culture". Predominantly print, the publication also has a fantastic website that includes a healthy dose of industry insight.
Our client Shillington has its own blog; one that we often contribute to. That's whether we come up with ideas for content or write articles on their behalf. It's a must-read for Boomerang's team, and one that helps feed into other channels, including our own magazine, Creative Boom.
A New Type of Imprint is a magazine focused on creative culture and design. It's published quarterly by ANTI, a full-service creative agency based in Norway. Although we highly recommend subscribing to its print publication, it's still worth following its online magazine for great interviews, design inspiration and industry insight.
Wallpaper sits on the higher end of the media spectrum, offering quality content on everything from art and design to travel and lifestyle. We especially love its updates on architecture and interiors, and its coverage of some of the industry's biggest annual events.
Brought to you by the lovely people behind Adobe and Behance – brands that we frequently partner with – 99U is for creative professionals and dishes up loads of helpful career advice. They don't update the content as much as we'd like, but it's clear they focus on quality, not quantity.
Yatzer has been around since 2007 when it was founded by Greek interior designer Costas Voyatzis. Targeting a more refined type of audience, this online magazine is all about the world's best architecture, art, fashion and design. And its 'City Experiences' section is perfect for any discerning traveller.
Dezeen is the essential online resource for architecture and interior design lovers. Crammed with interviews, industry news and the latest projects from some of the world's biggest and best designers and agencies. We can't get enough of it, and we certainly appreciate its recent website revamp.
Designed by Darren Firth of Six (who we recently interviewed for our magazine, Creative Boom), Kinfolk is not only beautiful to look at; it also serves a satisfying mix of art and culture with travel and lifestyle ideas and inspirations. Definitely one to add to your list.
