SSC15 - Thanks to all for your donations!

Journal Entry: Sat Jun 13, 2015, 1:14 PM
Hey folks it's me again. :D

This years SSC15 was a huge success, thanks to all the donations from everyone!  Things ended up getting resolved with the communityrelations team and they donated to the cause which is great news!

The excess of points I will use towards donations to people.  I am so happy now this was resolved.  Most of it was due to notes being lost in the shuffle as the team are bombarded with a daily dose of them.

Congratulations again to the winners this year, go check them out!

:icondanlosant: :iconrissol: :iconuriy1966: :iconxeromatt:

Now to start handing out points!

Sincerely,
Jamie

Introducing a 'nu' start...

Sun May 24, 2015, 6:29 PM
Nu designs is one awesome collaboration community focused on graphic design. Specifically, desktop user experiences. It was founded by Jamie Green in early 2015, with Lukáš Kokoška, Paulo Rodriguez, Catherine Lee, Adilson V. Casula and Daniel Losant immediately accepting invitations. 

:iconlukaskokoska: :iconneiio: :iconrissol: :iconcathycatchy: :iconburnsplayguitar: :icondanlosant:

The group will attempt to create projects in which strong sense of aesthetics and design create a special kind of user experiences, that are not seen often on computer screens and bring more out more the artistic side of graphical user interfaces.

You can look forward to projects based on these fundamentals coming in the near future.  So stay tuned and enjoy the ride along with us as we embark on this journey together and strive to bring the custo scene to new levels.

------------------------------

Hey folks, how's everyone doing? :D

I was wondering if you guys would do me the honor of suggesting some of your favorite
groups from around deviantART.

Please try to keep them related to customizing in some fashion as this is my main interest.

Also let me know if you may be an admin or owner of such groups, just for curiosity's sake. ;)

Also to all others if you just want to give a shout out to say how things are going by all means.

Cheers guys & gals, looking forward to your comments! :hug:
