With spring here, everyone is starting to clean up their flowerbeds and buy fresh flowers. Figuring out what color flowers to get, the type of flowers, and the size of the plant are all relate to design. Design is everywhere whether people realize it or not.

How Instagram Changed Advertising

Have you noticed how so many brands look the same and are following the same design conventions?
