30 Pieces Photos

I am overwhelmed (in a good way)! Below are 75 totally unique, creative design solutions to the "30 Pieces" challenge. Due to the high number of submissions I am unable to comment. There is so many amazing things you people did with these simple 30 pieces. My mind has been blown! I wish I could tell you all personally how cool your submission is, so perhaps in the comment section, those willing to leave some kind words to our designers are welcome to!
