Twitter Link Roundup #197 – Small Business, Startups, Innovation, Social Media, Design, Marketing and More Ross | September 27th, 2013

shitake1

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 typography, kerning is the process of uniformly adjusting the space between individual letters in a proportional font. The image above shows an example of what happens when a designer forgets about kerning. More great examples in the Logo Design section below.
