SiloMag #39

It seems that it does nothing that we started the year, and we are already opening the year. How fast for the time, right? Above all, when it is a pleasure to bring every two weeks the articles and resources that have most attracted our attention about graphic design, web design and WordPress. The truth is that there are almost always small wonders that inspire us every day.

And in this SiloMag, about graphic design, a reissue of books with new covers, typography in movement, and a video about combinations of sources. In web design, a pair of illustrations created with HTML and CSS, a tool to animate images. And on WordPress, we talk about multilingual sites, a new WordPress beta, and a guide to update WooCommerce.

As always, we hope you like it, and you can leave us any suggestions in the comments!
