Twitter Link Roundup #265 – Exemplary Resources for Small Business, Startups, and Design! Mike | April 17th, 2015

I like to think of myself as chameleon-like, able to adjust to fit into whatever the surrounding or with whomever is around me. But, I got nothing on these two women! Artist Johannes Stoetter’s work focuses on fine-art body painting and he has raised the bar to extreme heights. Click play on the video above and watch his work come to life!

So try your best to blend into the surroundings, because it’s time for our weekly Roundup! Here is a big ‘ol batch 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!
