10 Excellent Art and Design Twitter Accounts You Should Follow
A couple of weeks ago I compiled a list of 20 Cool Photoshop, Photography and Design Twitter Accounts You Should Follow for my Photoshop Roadmap Blog.
The post was a big success and I decided to make a more design and art oriented version for this blog. These accounts are very active and are sending tweets every day about illustration, art, industrial design, decor, designer toys, design in general, and even job posts for the design community.
If you are new to Twitter, start building your followers base by following some of these accounts and retweeting their best messages or, better said, tweets.
