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!

Klyati Trehan, a design student from India created a phenomenally impressive project, combining science and typography to visually represent 26 inventions that have changed the world. Above is her design for the letter T, reflecting the discovery of the rotating magnetic field by Tesla. More examples in the Design section below.
