  10. Matt Sanders

    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.

    1. Matt Sanders

      I wold also like to point out that if your using blogspot you probably aren’t a designer.

  11. Toad

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

    1. Andy

      What one?

    2. simo

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

    99Designs? Really? Not a designer, but rather an insult to them, but hey…whatever works for you…

  21. designiac

    I mean “nice list” …. sorry, typing error

  22. @designiac

    Sorry, I meant “nice list”… typing error

  23. Leon Poole

    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 :(

  24. Michelle

    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.

  25. Koboy

    But where is Karim Rashid ? :’(

  26. Pateador

    Muy buena seleccion. Justo lo que andaba buscando para mejorar mi twitter following.

    Gracias

  27. Antonio Lupetti

    Thanks a lot for the mention!

  28. design4eye

    hey guys;
    great list of designers! I am a web designer + graphic designer. feel free to add me I will follow you too

  29. Peter McClean

    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.

    Great List! thx.

  31. Disc Jockey

    Thanks for this collection of web designers!

  32. Will McCulloch

    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.

    Best wishes from Hamburg

  35. Tim Read

    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 :)

  36. Marc Shake

    What about me? Oh, never mind. My Designs really really suck :)

  37. HI

    Where is StyleIslam !!

  38. Jasmin Halki?

    Nice list :)

  39. countzeero

    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.

  40. Deize Serrano

    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!
    Cheers!

    And Me… ^^ excelent design =p

    And me and me! ;)) @puniaf
    Cheers!

  43. Katelynd Heuts

    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. Shannon C

      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.

  44. farbige kontaktlinsen

    When I hear this, I am really becoming a fan of twitter.

  45. Helen Mcilroy

    Think about including me. @HelenGMc :-)

  46. Waasys

    would be greate to see yourself in a list like that!

  47. sunil

    @sunilsk :D

  48. Kelly McPhee

    @kylebrain need to be on this list! He’s really talented!

  49. xethorn

    And no non-english designers of course.

  50. maureen

    don’t forget @birdsall

  51. Kenny Adams

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

  52. Luís Pereira

  53. Tyler Travitz

  62. WebDep

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