Best design and marketing posts of 2009 (so far…)

trophyI believe that PsPrint has some of the best design and marketing blog posts on the Web, but I also recognize that there are others out there who have made incredible contributions to the blogosphere with incredibly insightful and valuable posts.

From Seth Godin to Chris Brogan, here are a few of my favorites so far this year:

Seth Godin, “What are you good at?” A short yet invaluable post about entrepreneurial process.

Chris Brogan, “My best advice about personal branding” A collection of links to Chris’s posts on branding the individual. Great material for freelance graphic designers!

David Airey, “The Design Pricing Formula” answers the question: How much should I charge for graphic design?

Smashing Magazine, “TV Show Web Designs Trends and Examples” shows you everything you need to know to craft a vibrant web design in a style popularized by contemporary television.

Core77, “Why Young American Designers Are Ganging Up” If you’re a graphic designer, you absolutely must read this piece by Lisa Smith.

Anything on Brand New, a website devoted to the discussion of identity design.

    Thanks very much for deeming my post worthy, Brian. Particularly as I visit all of the other sites you reference.

    All the best.

    David, your posts are always a source of inspiration and insight. I think that some people blog purely for SEO and self-promotional purposes, and that isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but the posts you write (along with those of Seth Godin, Chris Brogan, and company) break that mold to offer incredible value to your readers. Sure, content is king, yet it amazes me that you are willing to share so many secrets others can use to become better designers and businesspeople. Hat’s off!
