A veritable smorgasbord of links for you this week, dear reader. Everything from terrible corporate behaviour to useful freelancer videos to a project aiming to create a brand identity for all the US presidents.
It’s Friday, so pour yourself a coffee (or a glass of wine, it’s the 2pm for god’s sake!) and give the links below a look. Have a good weekend!
Including our own link in the weekly digest? That’s a little indulgent, don’t you think? Well, hear us out for a minute – we’re putting on a party in Brighton, and the drinks are free. Interested? Get clicking.
Big story this week – Amazon decided to wipe a customers’ Kindle account for no greater crime than buying eBooks from Kindle stores in different countries. For shame!

National Freelancers Day 2012 is fast approaching, so what better time to look back at all the great (and still mightily relevant) content produced last year? Here’s a bunch of videos, courtesy of the PCG.

Rocking one of these bad boys as a password? Shame on you.
Fantastically inventive and really rather well done project to “brand” each American president. Nice inspiration for all the designers out there. Care to take on the task for our Prime Ministers, anyone?
