July 23rd: Weekly Design Links

“And the more technically developed a nation or race is, the more cruel, ruthless, predatory, and commercialized its systems tend to become … all because we continue to think like animals and have not learned how to think consistently like human beings…” ― A.E. van Vogt, The World of Null-A

Pushing through the chaos and focusing on the good. Art, design, trying to do good work and not be a jackass–that’s what I’m trying to do. Another batch of links from people doing that exactly. Enjoy.
