Howdy friend,

It's good to be back after the holiday! I'm excited to share what I've uncovered in the world of design, web3, and mindset.

My favorite article this week is A Normie’s Guide to Becoming a Crypto Person. If you're like one of the many designers/entrepreneurs I've spoken to recently that are finally ready to dip their toes into the web3 pool, this is a great primer. I've already shared it on Twitter and privately with friends and family — it's a hit.

I hope you enjoy the newsletter and as always, feel free to say hi — I'm always down to talk shop.

High fives,

Matt Downey
