Happy New Year to all of you. This first post of 2021 is bringing some wonderful graphic design resources that will inspire you hopefully as much as they did with me. For example if you are about to build a design system and you are doubting where to start you'll like the series that are linked below. I've also included some very cool branding projects to check out. Simon Collison talks about his personal site in a piece called 'timeline'. Your Adobe Photoshop skills are also going to get a workout with some very nice tutorials. Vector lovers don't despair as there's some Adobe Illustrator content as well, for example 'How to Make an Arabic Pattern in Illustrator'. Just as a small selection of what you will find below. Hope you'll find it interesting.
