staying up to date with current design trends

I am curious to see the different methods we all use for staying up to date with current trends in the design world. I believe there is lots of diversity in the design community here and would be interested to see what works for everyone! Thanks - Matt

Pinterest is a great tool for collecting and organizing inspiration. Good for discovery too, but you don’t always get the newest stuff popping up. To stay up to date with new work, I check out designboom, dezeen, c77, and various other design blogs. is helpful but it isn’t updated too often. is good too. They have a newsletter well-designed and going into some depth.
