Designer News is where the design community meets.
Agree. Leaning how to give good feedback is also a big part of it. Feedback, when given well, is really inspirational.
I have a folder of images I've collected over the years that I have on rotation. Here's the folder and desktop setting if anyone is interested
I use Input as well.

The iOS app information design is nicely done. It builds on what was already there, and adds a little more structure to the menus. I'm not really feeling the visual design however. I like the idea of making the app playful, but the type choice and logo design seem to have gone too far in that direction.
I subscribed to the magazine just the other week, and my only gripe was that the website wasn't responsive. So glad to see this roll out.
Great talk. There is a video up on the Web Directions site as well. http://www.webdirections.org/blog/the-website-obesity-crisis/
That's an extensive update. I was wondering what FontLab would do in reaction to Robofont, which I know a lot of type designers moved over to. There are some seriously great tools there, but I think this is the one that I'm most glad to see:
FontLab VI does not lock you into a proprietary file format, but allows easy file exchange with other apps that use .vfb, .fog, .ufo, .glyphs, .otf, .ttf, .svg, .png or .jpg.
Should make the option of including FontLab into a workflows a little easier.
This is pretty interesting to see on the back of the Tokyo 2020 logo controversy. I highly doubt there was any plagiarism in either case, but it goes to show how small the web has made the design world. Both of these coincidences would have probably gone completely unnoticed 10-15 years ago.
Along side the webkit nightly icon. It looks so out of place next to Safari
Georgia was the body copy for the previous design. It's been replaced by Freight Text in the new design :)
