First MVP

This is the first project that I show to so many people at the same time, and the fear is quite big, but, fuck it, if you don't try you won't get it.
What do I give up in a month? maybe, what continues and it is a success? congrats you all, because I won't have achieved it, I only curate content and layout them, you will be the ones who make it.

It will be divided in two parts, articles and ideas from studios, design teams and/or individuals; and the products section, which is self-explanatory.I may use this first introductory part as a small synthesis of that I've learned throughout the week, ideas that comes to my mind, or nothing at all, that's what MVP's are for.

The intention of these publications is that the readers will be able to take the resources they need, read the three pieces of crap that I wrote, and do something else in less than a couple of minutes; the goal of the publication is not to retain the reader, zero friction.

Thanks to all who have subscribed, you guys rules

Any feedback is more than welcome
