10 Must — Follow Designers on Medium

“Medium is an online publishing platform developed by Twitter co-founder Evan Williams, and launched in August 2012. It is legally owned by A Medium Corporation. The platform is an example of evolved social journalism, having a hybrid collection of amateur and professional people and publications, or exclusive blogs or publishers on Medium and is regularly regarded as a blog host.”

For me, Medium is the best platform to learn and share my design thinking. I spend at least one hour each day in reading design articles on Medium. These articles keep inspiring me. And the designers from all over the world are sharing their ideas and thoughts by writing articles. But, Medium doesn’t have any permission sets so that anyone can write a article by registering a account, it may cause a lot of lousy articles on Medium.

I wrapped up the 10 designers that I like best on Medium, and their articles that have been the most popular, the most shared, or had the greatest effect on designers’ thinking. Any resources you think it’s worth to be included, please feel free to give a message below in the comment area or simply drop me a line on LinkedIn.
