We may be stuck a home for a little while, but that doesn't mean we can't use this time to learn something new, find new sources of inspiration, or get some face time with The Futur team.
So, we created The Futur's Finds: a list of content, ideas, and more to help freshen up your week. For this very first edition, we’ve scoured every nook and cranny of the Internet to assemble this list just for you.
We hope you dig in, challenge yourself, and discover something new.
