August 15th: Weekly Design Links

“All morons hate it when you call them a moron.”–from ‘The Catcher in the Rye’ by J. D. Salinger

Tuesday is here again. I’ve been on the road for work and it’s always hard to maintain the usual schedule when everything is in motion. The links must go on. CreativeLinks.Club is now a weekly email, so if you like good links, go there and sign up today.

Good people of Medium, thanks for all the follows! On to the link show.
