Wishful Thinking Featured on ‘Designers Who Blog’

A big thank you to Cat Wentworth for featuring Wishful Thinking on Designers Who Blog today. She’s even gone to the trouble of creating a Wishful Thinking banner for the feature, which I’m proudly displaying here.

Designers Who Blog does what it says on the tin:

DWB features blogs discussing graphic design, web design, illustration, marketing, photography, branding, writing and advertising.

As a non-designer I’m particularly pleased to have made the cut. DWB has an excellent – and very extensive – selection of blogs. If you’re involved in any of the above industries I’d say it’s a must-read and must-subscribe. It was an instant addition to my blogroll and feed reader.

As well as the featured blogs, there are some great articles on DWB. At the moment there’s a New Year’s Resolution series, Learn to Write, which includes some good practical tips as well as thoughts on Why Designers Should be Writers.

Although I only ‘met’ Cat this week when she proposed the feature, I’ve been very impressed with her already – not only is she very passionate about what she does, she’s already been very helpful, offering suggestions and site recommendations on an almost daily basis.

Cat’s other projects include Creative Latitude, “a worldwide community that unites various creative disciplines for collective promotion, education and ethical business practice”, and NO!SPEC, a site on a mission “to educate the public about speculative, or ‘spec’ work” (i.e. designers being asked to produce work with no guarantee of payment) on the basis that “that spec work devalues the potential of design and ultimately does a disservice to the client”.

I don’t know how she finds the time for it all, but judging from the buzz on her sites there are lots of people who are glad she does. Including me.
