What Inspired This Site?

Well, we’re big fans of sites like AllTop, PopUrls and Twitter (who isn’t?) and being designers ourselves we noticed that the design community is a very active one always looking for new tips, tricks, tutorials and articles about design, so we thought we’d contribute and bring the whole thing together in one place!

And vice versa: Since the launch, Design-Newz has been an inspiration to others as clones emerged. A great compliment! :)
