Twitter Link Roundup #280 – We Love Great Resources for Small Business, Startups, and Design!

Every year, at their annual conference, Fonts from all over the world get together to discuss industry trends, innovative approaches, and strategy. Keynote talks, panel discussions, and breakout sessions are programmed to address the interests and concerns of the audience. But, every so often, controversy arises, things get heated, and debate devolves into argument and rancor. As the video above demonstrates, this year’s conference didn’t go so well!

But… fonts, schmonts! It’s time for our latest 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!
