July 18th: Weekly Design Links

“Washing one’s hands of the conflict between the powerful and the powerless means to side with the powerful, not to be neutral. ” ― Paulo Freire

A weekly links post on Tuesday? Yep, the times they are a changing… Also, the layout has been altered a little–nothing crazy. This is Medium after all and you can only go so far.

If you need more of these links, like every day – go to CreativeLinks.Club and sign up for the email list. You’ll get five art & design links everyday. And now, without further ado, let the links commence.
