Holiday Gift Ideas for the Designer in Your Life
It’s that time of year yet again! If you’ve got a designer in your life, you probably already know the struggle when it comes to the holidays and shopping for that special someone. Since design is a part of–quite literally–everything, and designers each have their own unique design sense, their tastes can be a bit discerning to say the least. Giving even the most seemingly innocuous item can be a daunting task when a creative person is the one receiving it.
So what can you get for the graphic designer in your life this holiday season? Here are a few ideas from the design team at Westwerk:
