If it’s true that good artists borrow and great artists steal, what is the classification for those who simply derive inspiration from others and then use it as a springboard for their own imaginations?
Maybe there’s no discrete category for such folks, but at least now they have Muzli, a new Chrome extension that curates and aggregates the most inspirational design Websites, blogs, resources and links on a daily basis.
Download the Muzli extension for the Chrome browser to have Muzli’s hand-curated picks for interface, experience and graphic design hit you between the eyes whenever you want. If you’re not a Chrome user, no worries. You can still set up the Muzli site as your home page or bookmark it in any browser you choose.
Muzli offers two tabs: Design and Tech and each contain a clean, curated set of lists and links devoted to design topics. The Design column starts with Muzli’s own picks and continues with a series of sites, resources, links, and blogs. Click on the Tech tab to access the most famous and popular tech sites and blogs.
The new Personal section on the Tech tab is a beta version of a feature designed to further personalize the service. It requires no input from users, but rather learns your preferences over time and feeds information that might interest you based on what you view on the site. You can exert some control over the feed by clicking the Not Interested link for items you don’t want to see.
I am familiar with almost all of the sites and logs listed on Muzli and it’s great to have them all in one place where I can explore them quickly. Muzli has become my go-to favorite extension in the space of 10 minutes.
