Good evening everyone! It’s Victor. I ended up taking a newsletter holiday last month — the move went well (and loving Bristol so far!) but I needed some downtime.
Here’s things I’ve seen over the last two months and wanted to share. They’ve added up so I tried to keep the description short.
Wikipedia is the best website

Good to look at
In my ears
Work! Design! Tech!
And that’s it for this month.
May you return softly to the rest of your day,
