Announcing the Launch of DesignM.ag!
Today I’m very excited to announce the launch of DesignM.ag! In attempt to provide a useful and resourceful site for the web design community, DesignM.ag includes a blog, a community news section, a design gallery , and a job board will be added soon. If you enjoy and appreciate the posts here at Vandelay Design, I think you will like DesignM.ag as well.
Welcome to DesignM.ag
A general first post.

Favorite Design-Related Sites of 21 Designers
Since I was starting a new site for the design community I thought it would be fun to get some others involved in one of the initial posts. This provides an interesting look at what some top designers are reading on a regular basis.
The launch of DesignM.ag should not affect the posts here at Vandelay Design. I’ve been very encouraged by the growth of this blog over the past year, particularly the past few months, and I am in no way moving on and leaving this blog behind. The posting frequency and quality here should remain as it has been in recent months. I recently let go of a few weekly freelance blogging gigs to free up more time to focus on my own blogs.
You may be wondering why I would be working on a new blog as opposed to focusing all of my blogging efforts here at Vandelay Design. The main reason I decided to branch out and start a new site is that I want to be able to have some more freedom to explore things that wouldn’t be a good fit at this blog. Because this blog is attached to the services of Vandelay Design I feel that I’m more limited to what I can do here as compared to a site that is not connected to a design service provider. For example, the job board would not be a good fit here. There are also some other features that I would like to add to DesignM.ag in the future that just wouldn’t be possible at Vandelay Design.
I thank all of you who subscribe to Vandelay Design or visit from time-to-time. If you have an interest in getting more design-related content please consider also subscribing to DesignM.ag. Because of the nature of the site there are three different feeds so that subscribers can get as much or as little as they want.
All-Inclusive Feed (articles, news, gallery)
Articles and News Feed (no gallery)
Articles Only (no news or gallery)
Thanks for your support!
