Twitter Link Roundup #277 – More Resources for Small Business, Startups, and Design! Mike | July 10th, 2015

At the risk of freaking out certain people in our office (no names mentioned; OK, hi Bianca!) I shared this video which is in turns creepy and incredibly beautiful. Not to mention an object lesson in the wisdom of staying away from shiny objects!  Not to worry, though: this roundup may glow in the dark, but is definitely NOT laced with cyanide!

And with that, it’s time once more for our weekly Roundup! Millipedes may be creepy-cool, but not near as cool as this set of links and articles that we shared with you over the past week on our  crowdSPRING Twitter account (as well as my own Twitter account) ! 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!
