I was fortunate enough to be a student in Shillington College's Melbourne campus last year. Especially for people who are just starting off with their creative careers—and even those who aren't—the Shillington Design Blog is a valuable resource for design knowledge and inspiration.
They feature studios and graphic designers from around the world (via the "Industry Talks" or "I Love These Guys" channels), share good book recommendations and online resources, keep you updated on events and competitions you can join, and also showcase works of their students.

When I was in art school, I would remember seeing Noise Funk posters in most of the magazines I browse. And it just got stuck in my head. This was one of the design that really affected me when I was just exploring on graphic design as a student. I can still remember the day our prof asking us to look for images that inspired us and we have to explain why. I selected a lot of Ballet Tech posters.
I didn't realize all those posters were designed by one person. I never knew who Paula Scher was until in my senior years. Until now, I can still clearly hear my housemate Flora screaming at me "You don't know Pentagram, you are a graphic designer!"
I got to hear her inspiring talk in AGI in HK many years ago. And it change my perspective on how to give a better design talk.
Scott Dadich, EIC of Wired has a tv show called Abstract: The Art of Design. It's an eight-episode documentary series about creativity, about visionary designers who shape the world around us—from architecture to illustration, cars to typography.
Of course we played Ep No. 6 first. This is the best design documentary I've seen so far. So much effort and I've only seen two episodes so far.
As Scott said it in this article -
"I can guess what you’re thinking, because I have watched a lot of design documentaries. Restrained, polished, pretty—so many of them look like a moving version of a coffee table book. You’ve got softly lit interviews, esoteric conversations, and subtle tracking shots of wide landscapes beneath unobtrusive music. Most of it is clean, minimal, and boring as hell.
We’re not doing that. My partners and fellow executive producers—Morgan Neville (who won an Oscar for 20 Feet From Stardom) and RadicalMedia’s Dave O’Connor—and I built a team of today’s best-known documentarians. Every episode stands as its own film, adapting the design sensibilities of our subjects..."

The relationship between the designer and the printer is ALWAYS VERY important. BTS on the production of our upcoming project with an art gallery
