Twitter Link Roundup #264 – Quintessential Resources for Small Business, Startups, and Design! Mike | April 10th, 2015

Skin cancer is a scourge. And dalmatian puppies are just about the cutest things that ever walked the earth.  Put the two together and what do you get? A genius marketing campaign and a public service effort that is attention grabbing (not to mention, “awwww” inducing). Have a look at the video above and see if you agree!

Enough with adorable dogs? Good! Because it’s time for our weekly Roundup! Here is a whole litter 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!
