“I wonder if I’ve been changed in the night? Let me think. Was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I’m not the same, the next question is ‘Who in the world am I?’ Ah, that’s the great puzzle! If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?” – Lewis Carroll

+ sharing some fun things I stumbled upon because sharing is caring.

Let me tell you. The best way to learn is to review how great designers produce their work THEN make your own with their tricks, tips, and methods. Doing the research on what is out there helps you learn about the current trends so designs do not become boring through use. click image for download site/or download will start automatically (all have been tested)
