A few years ago, DesignHammer wrote about their first standing desks and addressed some of the benefits and downsides around standing all day. It’s been a few years and we have a new addition to the conversation: the adjustable sit-stand desk.
This week we share highlights from articles addressing the point-and-call system, how to define processes that actually have things get done, all about the creation and use of Comic Sans, and why PDF’s aren’t ideal for email newsletters.
