still no news from IPS about my passport, so I’m guessing they had to dig deep into the paper vaults to find my old records.

prefers Can You Discover to Can You Tell. I just can’t take the latter seriously while the overly sentimental strings suggest I should.

  1. Thanks for the include Andy. Love the site. Keep on keeping on!

    Also some good follows. @Minervity, @mayhemstudios, @blellow, @TheWebBlend

  2. WOW I am truly honored to be mentioned with such great people. They are my friends and my heroes, Great people to follow.

    Keep up the great work my friend!

  3. Some of these people are great… However, A lot of them aren’t designers and I’m rather puzzled why a few have been featured here.

  4. I find it hard to trust the source when they list “Top” Web Designers” with their Twitter profile linking to a Blogspot?

  5. Good list of folks. I bet this does wonders for their follow numbers. I know I added a couple. Keep up the great posts.

  6. You’ve got some great designers on this list – but I was shocked to see 99 Designs included – just my opinion but who want’s to follow a business that devalues the entire creative industry? -1 for listing them πŸ™

  7. I have no doubt that these are great web designers, but to throw together a list like this and use the phrase “top web designers,” I feel needs a bit more clarification. Are they top web designers based on financial success? Top web designers that have the most twitter followers? Top web designers as rated on WHAT? I think by establishing some criteria for your stance would make this article a more valuable read for visitors.

  8. WOW – I am utterly speechless. You have the umitigated GALL to add 99Designs to this list??? Not only are they NOT designers, they are ruining the entire creative industry with their highly unethical contests that are actually also ILLEGAL lotteries! The ONLY reason they have not yet been shut down is because they are based out of Australia, not the US. Mark my words though, their time is limited. Just like Dr. Kevorkian, Napster, or The Pirate Bay, you can only get away with breaking the law for so long. The authorities WILL catch up with them eventually. Shame on you for even mentioning them here!! =[

    Artists! If you are not already, make sure to follow: @specworking | @nospec | @specwatch – and educate yourself as to why entering illegal “art contests” like this NEVER do you any good!

    That said, thx for the rest of the list. Found a few I was not yet following.

  9. Great list – and maybe some of them will be interested – (if they don’t already know) – in a competition for the “Best WordPress Design 2009” being run by Keller at http://www.fresheventure.com/best-wordpress-design-2009-contest-page/

    I’m actually entering my own website in the newbie section – so this competition is a brilliant extra incentive for me to learn as much as possible about WP – as quickly as possible.

  10. Thanks for the list. It was hard enough trying to keep up when there were just (paper) magazines – now with twitter, its easier in one way, but trying to keep the info avalanche in control is another story πŸ™‚

  11. And once again another stupid list! There are a couple of OK designers on this list. Mostly they are bloggers and I am disgusted that you feature 99 Designs who are Evil and Exploitive.

    I have to ask myself where your motivation for this post lies and what criteria you used to decide on the “top” designers. Affiliate Links, Google page rankings, selling ad space? You should be ashamed.

  12. Hi! Nice choice! I’ll check them out to know them better and… who knows? Follow everyone.
    Next time I would like to be choosen too.

    Good work! Keep on!
    Deize ( @dsgnnews)

  13. It seems there aren’t many women into ‘computer stuff’. I am not saying the list is sexist (most women certainly do not like ‘computer stuff’) but I would say it is certainly biased and a little short-sighted.

    99Designs alone is not a web designer. However there are web designers who sell their logos and ideas extremely cheap and most of the time for nothing to get their name out there. It’s frustrating, sad and it’s how I really made up the majority of my initial portfolio. 99Designs exploits up and coming designers work and make a huge profit from it.

    Smashingmag (the entity) is a magazine for graphic arts but not a graphic designer.

    And as much as I love David Airey, he is not a web designer. As far as I know, (don’t quote me on this – I may be wrong) he does not code. He is an amazing graphic designer but he only makes logos from what I’ve seen and read.

    There are other artists on the list I certainly agree with but others not so much. I think the reasons of why they’re on the list should be posted.

    1. Yeah I agree about the lack of female talent…why isn’t Veerle Pieters on that list? She’s an amazing designer…although her tweets are a bit boring. She doesn’t follow back and mainly tweets about herself, which defeats the purpose of social media…I noticed many of the designers on the list are like that.

  14. I personally would recommend Chris Harrison: @cdharrison One of the most creative guys I know! and I’ll shamelessly plug myself as well @oddzuki

  15. How is Smashing Magazine a top web designer? It’s a magazine. Unless your talking about the collective group that writes for Smashing, then ok.

  16. I like the design of Walter Apai. Actually I didn’t know that there are good designs of freelance people in the twitter.
