Another popular article on Evolutionary Designs that we slowly phased out of our weekly articles was the weekly design resource share. These articles consisted of texture shares, free font collections, and more. As the main writer for the site, I had to limited our articles down to once a week until I could find others who want to write for us weekly. Image Source: Flickr
But after re-evaluating my personal/business schedule, I decided it was time to spend to cut back on my regular work schedule (no more overtime) and spend my free time concentrating on Evolutionary Designs.
I haven’t figured out the details yet on this particular article, but as of now, I want these articles to go live Monday or Tuesday. Weekly Design resources will either be collections of design resources or link shares such as the collection of links below.
