Twitter Link Roundup #256 – Great Freakin Resources for Small Business, Startups, and Design! Mike | February 13th, 2015

Besides wanting to know what exactly is in her mom’s mouth, we also want to know where this little cutie Scarlett learned everything there is to know about identifying typefaces. This is a skill every designer can use, so I recommend watching this adorable  girl strut her stuff!

So… it’s time now for “the chickening,” aka our weekly Roundup! Here are a whole bunch of great links and articles we shared with you over the past week on our  crowdSPRING Twitter account (as well as my own Twitter account). We so like to talk about fonts, logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, economics and other interesting stuff! Enjoy!
