Hey
San Diego

Local time: 10.18pm
Weather: 18c / 64f

Whew! Hope you got to attend the Adobe Creative Jam! Tons of talent & members of the creative community were there. The next couple of weeks of kind of mellow on the design front (& we won’t be having a #TDKtuesdays for July since it lands on the 4th of July!), so in the meantime catch up on the new reads on the site! Elum Designs has a new interview live – Learn about what they look for in a portfolio, recent graduate, and their biggest learnings along the way. It’s a great read. Make sure you’re still developing yourself this summer break. It’s a great time to be taking yourself to the next level. See you out there!

Good reads from TDK friends
