Hang with me here at #lightfootdesign, and we’ll explore what makes for effective, function, and just plain fun creations. I’ll share helpful suggestions, ideas, and a variety of resources gained from my reading and wandering around the web.

Drop me a line at email@example.com if you have suggestions or questions about anything you see here or that you find that’s design-related.
