August 7th: Weekly Design Links

“Are you taking over
Or are you taking orders?
Are you going backwards
Or are you going forwards?”
–The Clash, White Riot” (1977):

This weeks links are Web/UX heavy along with a big dose of work stuff. That’s probably a reflection on where my head is at these days. I work as a UX designer by day, and I’m very interested in process, workflow and how the business of design gets done. I’ll get more graphic design and art in the mix next week, I promise.
