Infographic: Top Design Blogs Compared

Whatever kind of site you’re running: ecommerce, bricks-and-mortar sales or service, or not-for-profit, you need your site design to be top notch. It needs to be engaging without being pushy, eye-catching without being too flashy, and above all, it just needs to work. That is why we need the existence of design blogs.

      the infographic is pointless. it doesn’t make the info easier to understand. in fact it makes more difficult. a simple table would have done a better job

      same to you, I though it founded on 2006 with smashingmagazine

        @inspirationfeed, @aditia, I have a further check and it revealed that Hongkiat was indeed started in 2006 but the domain has been purchased since 2001 hence we have updated the changes.

        Sorry for any confusion caused.

    First of all i must appreciate the great effort put up by you guys for the infographic, its very informative, but i should also mention some pitfalls in this, as per my opinion an infographic should depict all the related and necessary information in single graphic organized very well in an easy to understand manner, this one does not attempt to go anywhere near that, because for me it appears like a template created for each site and appended at the bottom of one another, and then there are some typo errors like mentioned as at the end, hope dainis wont mind with this :), since data is the most important component of an infographic , it should be cross checked for any typo errors at the end..

    thats all , sorry for being too harsh

    It’s surprising that i have no prior information of Hongkiat, a design blog which is on the top besides smashing mags, tutsplus network

    general statistics in one place is a good idea. It’s much more easier to compare these useful resources at once without searching this info on different sites. That’s the first time I heard about some facts. So the post was quite informative for me. Thanks authors!!!

    Data for traffic ratings at the bottom seems to be mixed up – Hongkiat with 8,144 looks many times bigger than webdesignledger with 247,552.
