We just learned that Joost van Brug's pioneering and influential design blog has closed after four years.

Reluct was the site that first switched us on to how the blog format could be used to deliver visually led design news. At its height, the site was the best-designed and best edited in the field, and we checked it every day.

Sorry to see you go Joost, and good luck with the new ventures (he is now running a creative agency called Marc & Justus).

Read's August 2006 interview with Joost.

    That’s crappy. Reluct was a pretty good blog, and I used to read it everyday.

    Good luck Joost!
