Jumpola: The Ultimate Links List for Designers, Marketers, and Artists

Jumpola: The Ultimate Links List for Designers, Marketers, and Artists

What is the Designer’s Jumpola?

I like to think of this big list of design-oriented links as a place of “instructional (and entertaining) introductions.” A carefully chosen list of people, places, things, and ideas, some of which, I hope to have the privilege of introducing you to for the first time.

They are carefully chosen and (I hope you will agree) organized in a way that makes them reasonably easy to use. And while I certainly don’t agree with everything they publish or promise, I think you will find most are worth seeing.

The idea for the page grew out of my own frustration in finding a useful “start page” for the design trade. I was looking for a page with more of the tools and information I use as a designer and writer, and less of the blinking perfume ads. The Designer’s Jumpola is an ongoing experiment in developing that page.

Take a look and give me your suggestions for improving the idea. What else would you like to see? What’s missing? What’s overkill? Address you comments and suggestions to me at chuckgreen@ideabook.com —Chuck

What is the Design Links Briefing?

I started the briefing with the idea of sharing a periodic list of the new and new-to-me designer-oriented resources I come across and post on jumpola.com. It has become so popular, I now am able to devote some serious time to the monthly search. My goal for each issue is to introduce you to at least one extraordinary site you have not yet come across and my hope is that you will receive some of the same insights and encouragement I have in tracking them down.--Chuck
