Twitter Link Roundup #262 – MegaResources for Small Business, Startups, and Design!

Did you guys see Birdman, the Oscar-winning picture? If you’re like me the loooong choreographed shots really caught your attention and left you in awe. This is tough stuff to do for any filmmaker. Take a look at the video above and check out how the actors and creative team pulled one off!

OK then. Now it’s time for our own version of a long take, all-in-one-shot! That’s because it’s time for our weekly Roundup! Here is a hot mess 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!
