The Cool Hunter is a culture and design site focusing on what’s cool, thoughtful, innovative, and original. Created in 2004 by Bill Tikos, The Cool Hunter celebrates creativity in the areas of fashion, architecture, design, travel, art, and music. It’s not a trend predictor but rather a place to go to find tomorrow’s icons and classics. The Cool Hunter provides the latest in fashion, ads, hotels, food, gadgets, bars, etc.

Features include:

  • Hot Picks - a quick look at all the coolest designs and trends globally
  • Links to Cool Hunter events where the site is "brought to life"
  • Links to Twitter, Facebook, and RSS Feeds
  • An in-depth look into global lifestyles, along with fashion, music, and architecture

This website features some beautiful photos and is user-friendly. The links take you directly to your design interest, so navigation is a breeze. You can also search the site. Be sure to enter keywords “fashion institute of design” to see pictures of FIDM’s award-winning San Diego campus and library! A gorgeous informative site full of design inspiration and ideas, The Cool Hunter “roams the U.S. and the you're in the know!”
