Coming up in this week’s roundup of interesting and useful links is a group interview with a bunch of designers; a showcase of big backgrounds in web design; a huge collection of designers to follow on Twitter; a tutorial on creating a cool glowing effect and a fun post checking out what random things designers carry in their bags.

Big backgrounds in web design make for an impactful and interesting website design. Check out this collection of some great examples, many of which I personally hadn’t seen before.



The huge social media blog that is Mashable recently hosted this excellent roundup of active designers on Twitter. The post features 85+ creatives with a short bio and link through to their profiles. Definitely one to browse if you’re looking to receive a wealth of links and handy design resources on a daily basis.
