  1. I love it David, the food and Bebas links were one of the quick morning highlights for me.

    I read your Work for Money, Design for Love book. It was very helpful, and I’m looking forward to your Logo Design book. I keep coming back here everyday to see if you have a contest giveaway.

    Cheers.

  2. Thanks a lot for reading, Daniel.

  3. My favourite “From the reader” yet. Thanks!

  4. I discovered an article (http://www.noraluther.com/Recipes-1) over the weekend that immediately made me think of the nation flag project, along with the Pantone/food pairings project. Is this the year of interesting food photography?

  5. Brilliant share, Ashley.

Anything to add?
