Issue N7

Fonts Ninja - Custom Shape Dividers - Creatures - Iconic Brand Guidelines & many more.

Hola everyone, and welcome to the seventh issue of the newsletter.
On this issue, we go from Iconic Brand Guidelines to Creature Illustrations and more.

Intro…

So…How is everyone doing? I am glad you are fine.

You know, my Grandma used to say that, when someone asks how are you, tell them that you are fine, even if you are not, you will feel better ( perhaps not ) and they won't feel bad ( perhaps not )…

I know,… old sayings. Some of them don't make sense…

Wow! Look.At.That.

So..we are 1000+ readers now. Imagine, in so little time and we are up just to the 7th issue. Since now I am going to send you more resources, articles and assets to complement your workflow.

Thank you.

Thank you so much for reading the newsletter. If you would only know how much this means to me. It goes beyond my ego feeling super-duper, is not all about that but to know that another person far away, wants to put the time to read it? It goes beyond.

Your turn.

You can always leave a comment on the thread, don't be shy…I am always open for a chat about anything, you are welcome to do so.

Also if you have some feedback, positive or negative just let me know. Is a way to grow as the newsletter's writer.

Now, is my time to shut up.

Without further ado, here is Issue N7. Enjoy it. — Michael.
