🤔 Thought Starters

(Four Tweets this week that made us think)

📆 Day in the Life: Jessica Powell

(Day in The Life is a series about the daily routines of founders at different stages of the startup journey)

Jessica Powell is the co-founder of a music collaboration software that will be launched later this year. Jessica is a first-time founder after heading up PR at Google. She also just published The Big Disruption: A Totally Fictional but Essentially True Silicon Valley Story. She is based in San Francisco.

🔗 Here’s a day in the life of Jessica.


👩‍🎨 36 Days of Type

“36 Days of Type” is a celebration of global creativity, showcased on Instagram. It’s worth checking out.

Thousands of designers, illustrators, and artists participate in the challenge every year to share creative interpretations of letters and numbers.

“Our ABCs and 123s are in many ways the shape and substance of our collective visual vocabulary itself”, participant and CoFounder Weekly contributor Victor Sanabria told us. “#36daysoftype has tapped into this and unearthed the creative energy of artists worldwide.”

The project was started by Nina Sans and Rafa Goicoechea and has turned into a global community and movement (#36daysoftype has 617k posts & @36daysofype Instagram has 200k followers).

Here’s some of our favs:

Check out Victor Sanabria’s letter R above. 👏👏.
