- Chris Pearson He’s the guy behind Thesis WP theme and I guess that says all – a really remarkable piece of work!
- Nick La
He runs WebDesignerWall blog and if you’re into web design this is the person you should follow.
- Veerle Pieters
She always inspires me for modern web art and gives me another perspective from female artists point of view.
- John D Boardley
He runs ILovetypography and actually learnt me that web typography isn’t as easy as I thought, but it is fun though=)
- Jakob Nielsen
He learnt me that if sth looks good it isn’t always the best though, usability is the way to go. A lot of people criticize his website design but I really love it – simple, usable, straightforward!
- Magnus Jepson
I love his soft minimalistic designs, his color schemes for his themes are remarkable.
- Mark Forrester
I fell in love with his theme, called Foreward Thinking – people don’t like it but I love it – it’s simple and straight forward, nothing more, nothing less.
- Adii Pienaar
More than his designs I love to follow his blog as it gives me lots of insights to commercial part of WordPress themes.
- Matthew James Taylor
SEO is his language and I learn a lot from him, he provides tips with simple cases and I just love it.
- Darren Rowse
If I want to design templates I need to know who am I designing them for so his blog posts give me so much usable tips for blogging I cannot emphasize how great Problogger is.
I would really encourage you to visit their blogs and follow what they’re doing as they have amazingly a lot to offer. I’m probably not the best WP theme designer out there but because of these people I’m better each new post they publish.
