I am a Virgo rising and I identify with it fully. Those who know a bit about astrology probably know that this means I live for lists. As a child, I had journals full of different lists — places I want to travel, my favorite celebrities, an ordered list of my favorite colors, etc. I was a really fun kid.

I think people are generally drawn to lists for a variety of reasons. Structure and organization are universally appealing & they are quick to skim and understand. They make reading and comprehension easy. Whenever I look for design-related articles, there is a serious difference between how far I get in an article with blocks of text vs. an article with a list format of the author’s points. Humans are lazy and I am no exception.

So as I was scouring the internet for inspiration for my next blog post, I realized that I could get really meta about this. I love lists, you love lists, we all love a good list. So why not make a blog post that is a list of my favorite design lists?

Behold — METALIST!
