Initially I searched to find Chip Foose’s blog. He’s a very inspiring car designer to me because he’s in design and restoration. When I found his blog I was a little let down. It’s fairly visually appealing but all of his posts are just about events that he’s involved in rather than some of his current work. Nothing inspiring there.
THIS blog however, I LOVE! I love the design of it. It’s simple but interests you at the same time. I like that you can go to the different pages such as sketchbook and portfolio. There are also links to his top posts and recent comments down the side. I also like how the photos are so large and he also incorporates videos. Check it out!
This blog seems to have a newspaper quality about it which I like. It’s clean, easy to read and figure out. I also enjoy that the photos are the main focus. The site is also connected to their Facebook, Twitter, etc. which is a smart choice.
Some blogs definitely stand out more than others simply because of the layout, colors, and design. Some that are bland and boring do not seem as professional and relevant. They seem very outdated. I hoped to find more interesting blogs about yacht design but most seemed to fall under this outdated category.
