Twitter Link Roundup #285 – Labor Day! Resources for Small Business, Startups, and Design! Mike | September 4th, 2015

I know this guy. He’s a musician and a visual artist. His music is ethereal and dark and his motion design work is reflective of that. I actually know him pretty well, because he’s my son! So, shameless me – the video above is the work of Cody Samson – music, motion graphics, direction, and editing – along with the cinematographer Brian Pucci, Production Designer Kai La’Rosa and the animators Jigyu Yoon and Leo Mendes, they have produced a beautiful work. Enjoy!

Hope you like that as much as I did! Now it’s time for the 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 do love sharing articles about fonts, logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, economics and other interesting stuff! Enjoy!
