Twitter Link Roundup #268 – Pristine Resources for Small Business, Startups, and Design! Mike | May 8th, 2015

Remember the first time you got a taste of something so delicious, so amazing that you simply had to have more? Had to experience the joy again? And again? This wonderful, simple animation is a meditation on human’s need to get more of what they crave. Is this what addicts come up against? The little kiwi in the story is experiencing what it means to become dependent on that which gives us pleasure.

OK. Get your own habits in check and get ready to try something new: it’s time for our weekly Roundup! This week’s set of charming links and delectable articles that we shared with you over the past week on our  crowdSPRING Twitter account (as well as my own Twitter account) is keyboard perfection! We just love sharing articles about fonts, logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, economics and other interesting stuff! Enjoy!
