Summer arrived early and strong this year, bringing an extended heatwave upon our typically temperate city. While we’ve been doing our best to stay cool while enjoying the outdoors, we’re staying inspired and engaged with the growing resources for design out there in our increasingly connected world. Thanks to all who help us keep a pulse on things, and let us know what’s been hitting your design radar in the comments below.
