The Design Museum and more

Discover Design is the newest addition to London’s The Design Museum’s online resources. Discover Design is an interactive resource for teachers and students that will stimulate critical and creative approaches to design and help you make the most of visiting the Design Museum.

*~*~*, a new community for creative professionals, allows designers, artists, photographers, and other creative individuals to build completely personalized portfolios for free. It aims to provide an effortless way for designers to create and manage a portfolio in a professional or personal environment.

You can customize pretty much every aspect of your portfolio, so you can match the look of your portfolio to your style and your personality. It takes some time to figure out the interface because of the plethora of options though.

The only downside to this service is the google ads in the right sidebar, but you can get rid of them for $5/month if you decide you need a cleaner interface for a month or two when looking for a job.
