Interesting Resources from the Lighting Design Industry

posted in: Lighting Design | 0

Very often I get asked by friends to suggest online magazines and interesting resources from the Lighting Design Industry. During this period, I thought that it would be a good idea to gather some of my favorites here with a few links and names that you can follow whenever you are looking for some inspiration, new knowledge or just to stay updated with what is going on. To be honest, I am mostly a book physical paper lover compared to online e-books and resources however I do get the benefits of the online ones especially now when most of my magazines and books are miles away in London.
