Twitter Link Roundup #177 – Small Business, Startups, Innovation, Social Media, Design, Marketing and More Ross | May 3rd, 2013

sciencemarketing

Every day on the crowdSPRING Twitter account and on my own Twitter account, I post links to posts or videos I enjoyed reading or viewing. These posts and videos are about logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, and more! Here are some of the links that I’ve liked and shared this past week!

The image above shows how different colors impact people’s emotions. There’s a science to marketing, and colors play a big role in helping to persuade. For the full post, look in the Social Media & Marketing section below.

    Nice list of articles in the design section today! I love the typography rules and theories. It was good to see a few that talked about measure—one rule that can be easy to forget, and one that is seldom talked about. I’m sure I’ll be making more thoughtful type selections in the future.

    Great round-up, as always.

    Cheers,
    CJ
