January Finds in Web Design

Our industry is constantly changing and growing.

In order to keep up with what’s happening, it’s my belief you should always be learning; if you stop, you’ll get behind.

A few months ago our team created a #resources channel on Slack where we can share articles, tools, inspiration, etc. with each other. It has been a great way to learn from one another.

This month we’ve stumbled upon some great resources and articles, so take a look at our roundup for January.
