<UPDATE time=”+30mins”>Yes, I’m bound to have forgotten some really important people and sites in this post. I’m already getting pings about it. I wanted to point out the people who are on *my* A-List. Please add comments with yours!</UPDATE>
Unlike most of my posts, the word “design” in the title doesn’t have “er” at the end of it. (SharePoint Designer really is a poor product name. I’ve said it before and it looks like I just said it again.)
Louise van der Bijl (@SynStalker) did an #SPHelp tweet this morning asking for good design resources:

I had a few suggestions, so I figured I’d capture them here. Let me know what else belongs on the list!
My go-to SharePoint design gurus:
- Michael Greene (@webdes03)
- Marcy Kellar (@marcykellar)
- Heather Waterman (@hwaterman)
- Randy Drisgill (@drisgill)
- Christian Ståhl (@cstahl)
- Kyle Schaeffer(@kyleschaeffer)
There are a few excellent sites out there that many people may not know about, but should.
Christian runs the site http://www.sharepointdesigners.net/, which is an excellent place for people interested in SharePoint design to interact and post content.
I know that Kyle has been working on a site called SharePointDesigNerds, but it doesn’t seem to be live yet. I talked to Kyle about it at SharePoint Conference .ORG and it sounds like it will be an fantastic resource.
