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!

If you didn’t already love John Malkovich, you will once you see his phenomenal collaboration with photographer Sandro Miller, recreating some of the most famous photos in history. The image above is one of a number of fun images from their collaboration.
