Subscribe to 75+ Awesome Design Blogs in 2 minutes with this file via your RSS Reader

There have been many posts recently showcasing the top design blogs out there that every designer should subscribe to. Due to these lists being quite large many users click through a few and subscribe to a few.

I thought it would be a good idea to gather them into one XML (OPML) file that you can download and import directly to your favourite RSS Feed reader.

The blogs chosen cover all areas of web design and development including the following:

  • Inspiration
  • Design/Development
  • Tutorials
  • Freelance
  • Blogging
  • Usability
  • Logos
  • Typography
  • Industry News

Well, here it is:

You may need to right click and select save file/link as.

NOTE: I have only tested this in Google Reader.

I will have missed many great blogs out there – If you have any recommendations, be sure to mention them in the comments below and I’ll add them.
