I’m a product designer in Seattle, WA. I recently worked at Simply Measured, and previously co-founded Lendle.

Some of my past clients include Facebook, Microsoft, Yahoo, and the University of Washington.

I’ve authored two books on web and interactive design and spoken at dozens of conferences around the world.

I’m currently accepting contract work and considering full-time opportunities.

45 Excellent Blog Designs

Smashing’s list of great blogs, organized by CMS/framework, is notable for a few reasons:

  1. It shows that — at lest when using the popular featured tools — design is almost completely independent of CMS. The idea that “all insert CMS here sites look the same” is simply untrue and an unfair criticism of a particular platform.
  2. It has several great designs I’d never seen before.
  3. It has a small, but nice, selection of Django-powered blogs.

    I spotted this earlier (via Digg - Design Feed) and noticed the ‘Django’ section and thought about letting you know…but then changed my mind because I thought you’d find it soon enough anyway! ;)

    Some really great designs there - some I hadn’t seen before.

    There’s some great stuff in there - some new, some familiar. After the first screenshot, anyway…
