    are there any websites or anything out there that I can sign up for for free or check out daily, that keeps up with all the new things in graphic design?

    i feel like im really out of the loop sometimes with stuff. I know youthedesigner has like newsletters and such and different articles on the site. I was just curious if there was other sites or anything out there like that.

      If you are taking about the design side of this business, you should be reading Communication Arts magazine and Print magazine. Check their web sites. Print has a daily newletter and CA has news section with links to current information.

      These magazines feature design that is out front and pushing the edge of the envelope. However, generally, the current current trends in design are not earth shaking.

        I find out a lot of cool stuff just by following certain people on Twitter.

        As for publications, I like How, Computer Arts, and GDUSA.

        But, be well-rounded. Read stuff that is design-related, but not graphic design. One of my favorite magazines is American Style. I also get a lot of inspiration from photography magazines.
