A similar community of freelance designers in the Russian version. The offer appears almost every hour, so ears on top and off you go!
International online magazine about computer art.
Schools and universities also have the right to be represented in the gallery. This one is especially interesting.
Website by designer David Airey. Here he shares his experience in graphic and logo design.
A site that brings together a portfolio of artists, designers and art people from all over the world. A truly inspiring site, to be honest.
A very good resource with all kinds of design (and not only) magazines in PDF format.
Nice gallery. The guys publish very interesting articles about website development and regularly follow the news of their field of activity.
Russian Forum of Designers. Discussions, mutual assistance, discussions of your work and professional problems.
Australian website about design. Focused on design news only. In general, the site is only about design. Design. And the last time. Design.
Freelance blogging community with regular articles and posts. Very varied.
A site dedicated to all design needs. Textures, brushes, patterns, as well as consultation for everyone. And all this is absolutely free, as we love.
Well, this is a well-known Russian analogue site. Here, too, everything is free and of sufficient quality.
I can’t help but mention this very rich site that specializes mainly in clipart. In general, I strongly advise you to either buy or create unique pictures yourself.

A large social network, a place where a huge number of authors unite. The site also has a section on design.
Great site about web design and web development (CSS & Ajax).
It contains information about everything a beginner developer and a design professional (and in particular the web) need. So if you, the designer, have never heard of this site and have never been here, I’m sorry for you.
vitamin is a resource for developers, web designers, and entrepreneurs. I guess 50,000 subscribers can’t be wrong.
Quality articles on design and development.

A very diverse site: graphics, css, ajax …

Site with news about web design and not only. Also recently, a section with podcasts was opened on the site (although so far there is only one of them).
A blog containing many open-source sources for web developers and designers.
On this site, its creators publish their own beautiful websites and share the best of their ideas.
Every designer should know, even if he is not interested in web design.
A site similar to digg.com, only on the theme of design.
A site with very good step-by-step web design tutorials for both beginners and professionals.
I highly recommend this site, which contains links to, perhaps, all the major photobanks on the Internet.

The name of the site speaks for itself.
One of my all-time favorite font websites. More than 11,000 fonts for every taste.
