I recently had the opportunity to interview freelance designer and blogger Henry Jones. Most of you are probably familiar with Henry’s blog Web Design Ledger, and he also launched Card Observer, a gallery of business card designs, a few months ago. Also, last year Henry sold his previous design blog, Design Reviver. Take a few minutes and get to know a little bit more about Henry.
Premium WordPress themes are obviously very popular right now. One of the premium theme marketplaces that is very interesting to me is Elegant Themes. With Elegant Themes you can purchase a one year theme club membership and get access to all of their themes for less than $20 per year.
Elegant Themes currently offers more than 20 different themes, and many have multiple color schemes or styles to choose from. With the club membership you also get access to the support forum and theme upgrades.
I recently had the opportunity to interview Nick Roach, the man behind Elegant Themes. Nick has sponsored some giveaways here in the past, and people really love his themes. Hopefully if you’re already familiar with Nick and Elegant Themes this will give you a little insight into his life and his business, and if you’re not familiar with Elegant Themes, please take a minute to see what Nick has to offer.

Most of you are probably familiar with CSS Globe. If you’re not, it is a very popular site run by Alen Grakalic that provides design news (through user submissions) on a daily basis. Alen also publishes some original tutorials and articles on the site.
Jacob Gube is the man behind Six Revisions, a popular web design and development blog. Over the last several months I’ve gotten to know Jacob a little bit through email, and he is easily one of the most responsive and helpful bloggers that I’ve come across in the design blogging niche.
Many of you probably follow Chris Coyier’s blog, CSS-Tricks. Chris has also been apart of some other projects recently, including the Band Website Template and the recently-launched Script and Style.
Since DesignM.ag is a new site that aims to meet the needs of the web design community, I thought it would be appropriate to launch with a collection of design-related sites that are visited frequently by other designers. I emailed a bunch of my contacts to ask which sites are their favorites and the responses are included below.
