John Nouanesing - Product Design
This guy's got some great concepts!
Simply amazing- a one-stop online shop for links to most of the major design blogs' latest news. Very handy little thingy-ma-jigger.
Fabulous both for the site itself and for the links it offers....
The fabulous MOCO site has a sub-category for various localized resources. Try a city search if you haven't already.
