Best Friday Five Posts of 2015

In 2015 we featured about 50 people in the design world, each delivering their own take on our Friday Five theme. Every Friday, we ask a designer or design profession to share five things with us and it can be anything they want – things they love, things that keep them inspired, favorite designs, etc. The only thing that’s the same is that the answers are always interesting. Let’s take a look back at the 10 most popular posts from our Friday Five column in 2015.
