»In a way, The Beatles are the Helvetica of pop; just like Helvetica is The Beatles of typefaces.« — Experimental Jetset
this is the 20th issue of »UX und Tollerei«. As this is something special, UI/UX Designer & Illustrator Fabricio Rosa Marques, contributed this week's awesome illustration. You should definitely check out some of his other work! (links are down below)
Besides that, I really had a great time at beyond tellerrand this week. Such a stunning experience! I'm actually pretty sure that from now on, this event will be on my yearly schedule.
Another quick note before we dive into this week's list of links: I'm really proud to be nominated for the Net Awards in the category »Young Designer of the Year«. The voting is open until mid-July so I would really appreciate it, if you could support me and vote.
