optical_illusion

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!

In the image above, which circle is moving faster? It’s a pretty cool optical illusion. Find 35 more fun optical illusions in the Other section below.
