Link review: design, art and photography

When we embarked on this rather thankless project a few days ago, we forgot to thank Roberto at ArchEyes for drawing our attention to the thicket of 404s that filled the sidebar. Hopefully that is all now being rectified. So how many changes in our sidebar list of design, art and photography links? 30gms has vanished / 50 Watts is still a thing / A London Salmagundi was a fine-looking tumblr that has atrophied somewhat, while the accompanying blog, Heraclitean Fire, hasn’t done much in a few months / Adaism seems a bit static / All things considered is still going / as is an ambitious project collapsing / Andrew Meredith ceased posting in 2014 / Aqua Velvet redirects to the Collier Collective Blog / Art Fag City has changed to Art F City, while Art is Everywhere became a book.

/

The ArtsJournal stays current, as does Artsy / Automatism is happily still around, as is Bear Alley / BERG shut up shot / BiblioGraphic became someblog, and closed in 2012, while Booooooom! still shines a light on new art, as does but does it float / the C-Monster seems to have retired as has the Camberwell Illustrator Blog (although Peter Nencini is still at large, mostly on Instagram) / Car Design News plays an increasingly high profile role in the industry while CarType is a must for auto design enthusiasts / Concept Ships keeps on sailing / Conscientious became the Conscientious Photography Magazine and continues to be excellent / Construct of the Mind is no more / Cool Hunting continues to hunt cool / more big hitters: Core77 is a design industry essential, Coroflot is the go-to destination for jobs and portfolios.

Creative Review continues to be one of the best UK design magazines / D’Blog of ‘Israeli ceased trading a few years ago / Daily Tonic still offers up what it promises / Daniel Benneworth-Gray no longer publishes a journal but he does put out a great link email, Meanwhile / Death House is one of those sparse, elegant tumblrs / Design Talks keeps up to date and insightful / designboom is still a major player / Designspiration stays current / Dezeen goes from strength to strength / DisegnoDaily is worth checking out / Display hasn’t updated in a long while / Drawn! was great but has closed its doors / Eliot Shepard takes excellent photographs but no longer blogs / emma’s designblogg moved over to Residence Magazine.

This is A456 continues to post / This is Colossal is another evergreen online spot / designer Tim George has an excellent blog / photo essays at Time LightBox / Two Wheels Plus is no more / We Made This is still great (and has some great info about the new exhibition at the South London Gallery) / We Will Become appears to be no more / with what has stopped / White Noise of Everyday Life is no more / xBlog still exists, as does Yanko Design / We already had a dormant links section. The following exist but are no longer updated: 2 or 3 things I know; Accidental Mysteries; Amazing Maps; atlas(t); the much missed Bad British Architecture; daily dose of imagery (now trading as top left pixel; Design Bivouac / and that’s the end of this section. On to the next one – music – another time.
