The Roundup: Friday, November 30

November 30, 2012  |  Elements

Every week here at Orange Element we read, see, and find dozens of cool things. And every week we mostly forget to share them with you. Until now. The Roundup will be a regular feature (at least once every couple of weeks, if not weekly) and we hope you enjoy it.

Subcompact Publishing by Craig Mod

Well-reasoned and thought-provoking take on "what's next?" for digital publishing in an app-driven ecosystem. It gets pretty detailed towards the end but even if you only read the first third or so it's still quite good.

How to be a creative director from Creative Bloq

Very interesting insight and advice from some folks who've been around the block. If you look closely you'll see that much of what they have to say is valid for other lines of work, as well.

You'll Have to Do Hot Dogs from ideasonideas

Eric Karjaluoto from smashLAB in Vancouver on what it means to be a creative agency and what kinds of challenges we'll all be facing over the next five years. What's your take? Agree or disagree? Are you having similar thoughts?

How to Master Instagram Tilt-Shift from Mashable

Just FYI.

The Ultimate Social Media Sizing Cheat Sheet from AllTwitter

Handy. Again, FYI.

Rock 'n' Roll: A Manifesto from Washington City Paper

Ian Svenonious is a legend. He's also not for everybody. Give this one a read and decide for yourself.

That's it for this week. We'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments, and if you've got something you think we need to see you can always send it our way.
