Today I wanted to share one of my favorite design sites, notcot.org. NotCot features an array of reader submitted pictures and stories featuring interesting design. The visual part is the hook, you won't find any big blocks of text here, just interesting visual after interesting visual. If you want more information, each links to its source. Today, they're featuring everything from art cars covered in toy cars to benches made from tennis balls.
Not only that, but they have two other sites with the same basic setup. notcouture.com is their clothing site (which is just getting started and really hasn't found its feet yet) and tastespotting.com which focuses on food. This is a foodies dream, page after page of luscious food photographs. Some link to recipes or suppliers, others just blog entries from people trying to make you jealous of what they ate for dinner.
If you work in a visual medium NotCot is a great place to start your day and a quick way to keep up with what's going on.
