This week was Design Week in New York, and in honor of all the creativity stirring around us, we're taking a look at yours, and our, favorite design devotees on Twitter. Here, we've gathered 10 tweeters cut from different cloths, from interior to graphic to typographic. Some offer news, others commentary and others yet amazing feats of design all around us.

Design, as we all know, is a broad designator, so we've eliminated architecture for the most part (stay tuned for a separate list devoted to it). Our list is by no means comprehensive and is meant to serve as an entry point, so let us know who we missed in the comments!
