friday blinks – 8/18/11

19 Aug

Here is a list of sites we’ve come across throughout the past couple weeks that we think are worth sharing. We call it friday blinks.

Some I could see in circulation, others, well…not so much.

In other news…

I was able to trick a few of my friends to helping me out with the writing and wrangling of designblinks. The first one to come forward and put her time in is Melanie Flagg. She is a super-talented designer who will be graduating from Virginia Tech’s Visual Communications Design program in December. I’m very excited to have her aboard and look forward to better-smelling (and probably better-written, too) blog posts. Be on the look out for updated content on the about page or we may do a full post about it.
