Ever wonder what the results from those churn and burn logo sites look like. Jim from 160 over 90 held a little experiment and posted it for the world to see. Visual vomit folks.

Uncrate: a man’s guide to awesome goodies.

Unplggd: via wello, one of my new favorite jealousy enhancing daily visits.

wisebread: inducing frugality one visit at a time.

The Superest: just to make me laugh.

Layer Tennis: Helps a Friday afternoon move a little quicker.

Apple tablet patented. Danger wallet, run.

In honor of The Inauguration, the new and vastly improved whitehouse.gov is beautiful and elegantly coded.

(sidenote: check out the slideshow of past presidents and pay close attention to the amazing photograph of Grover Cleveland)

I was shuffling through the new Comm Arts and was blown away by the article on Elixir Design, Inc. Great work and great philosophies.

*in other news: Comm Arts is cutting back because of harsh financial times. Down from 8 issues to 6. Bummer.

I’ve been following Eric over at Idrawallday.com for a couple of weeks now and his blog has won a spot in my daily traffic. I tend to put things through a litmus test before posting them here. That test is if I read it daily, it’s probably worth posting. I Draw All Day definately passed with flying colors.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. When I’m seeking out inspiration the honeypot for me is always package design. A week or so ago I stumbled on to lovelypackage.com, and this site has made it in to my daily rotation.

Searching for inspiration has made it’s way into my daily routine. I have two reasons for this. The first is my job. All designers need to pay attention to what’s going on in the world of design, as trendy and trite as it may be sometimes. The second is for this site and essentially filtering the good stuff to you guys. Scotty Reifsnyder is an illustrator & designer who stopped me dead in my tracks in my search for the daily eye candy. Great stuff.

A must visit is Ned Wright’s portfolio. Spectacular typography, with even better delicate design, and super simple/sleek website to boot. Go and notice all of your shortcomings.

I’m loving the personal site of designer, Jason Santa Maria. I wouldn’t be surprised if I saw some of his website rubbing off on the next generation of this one. I’m just saying, it’s balls-to-the-wall gridtacular.
