At the beginning of every New Year it’s nice to do a re-cap on the things you did well the previous year; a checklist, better known as … making progress! Acknowledging your hard work and all the things that worked out, all the things that people liked, and all the things that made you feel like you were moving forward.

It’s also a good time to take note of all the things that didn't work out so well and promise to never to do them again… Like planning 7:30 am Monday morning staff meetings to get a jump on the week… Note: a room full of half-asleep, annoyed designers is not a great way to start the week. Won’t do that again!

We've had some pretty incredible people join the site, our community is getting stronger every day and we've published some great articles that really made a difference to people. We've compiled some of the best articles, letting you catch up on the good stuff.
