  I keep finding so many good designers on dribbble. Today’s pick is the talented Jay Fletcher. His detail is beautiful. Look at the rounded corners on the icon above. Jay is definitely a craftsman. Take a gander at his entire book right here.                        ...

Paulina Reyes

Paulina Reyes

  My favorite lecture I saw this year at the AIGA National Conference was Paulina Reyes. She’s a humble super power of color, illustration and design. Her work is smart and simple.
