Found Friday Vol 36

^

Welcome to December, and volume 36 of Found Fridays – 36 weeks we’ve been running this series, which showcases the best design finds of the week (in my humble opinion). This week, we have: 24 ways – an advent calendar for web geeks, 50 great examples of snowboard design, a great tutorial on icon design, an article on design briefs and some awesome “lens bracelets” for photographers. Enjoy!

Let’s just let the website authors explain: “24 ways is the advent calendar for web geeks. Each day throughout December we publish a daily dose of web design and development goodness to bring you all a little Christmas cheer.” Sounds like fun to me!
