Hearts, likes and you?

On hearts, likes and sharing your work on social media by Daniel Benneworth-Gray

On the self-imposed social pressure of having to post your creative work online.

_______

Sharing work online can bring more than just ‘hearts’ and ‘likes’, but designers may need to start channelling their inner window-dresser in order to keep up.

Netdiver static + Editorials sections

Have I got news for you!

_______

I am really pleased to announce the release of two new vintage sections on Netdiver. I compiled all editorials I wrote into a directory (including some interviews I did through the years).

Although written a good while ago – surprised at how relevant these are still today.

Editorials by Carole Guevin

Editorials. Design topics or issues that have impacted me or our creative industry..

Over 50 articles.

_______

Sometime ago – someone inquired about the old news archives – the ones that were static – lol. Yep from 98-08 Netdiver was hand-coded.

It took longer than I thought the re-aggregate the content into our site design – but all done now.. and online. A legacy to the early web.

I am in the midst of revisiting links (years 04-08 to do) so – never mind broken links – the content is enough. Follow our web history from the very beginning..

.ART domain extension

Sunrise wave

I am thrilled beyond thrilled to have been accepted (vetted by a panel of artists) to own cgwarex.ART domain extension!

______

Self-explanatory

If you are an artist whose ‘name’ (as mine) says not much to a target audience – (unless you are one of the 1.5% of artists who live from their art) – then get yours.

Costs $$$ for the first year – but irrelevant if you think marketing $$$ to get your name out there. From now on – I will never have to explain what I do: .ART says it all.

Yay!

_______

Why choose .ART?

.ART is a new top-level domain created for the international art and culture community: identify – value word – express – inspire – search – connect – educate.

Now opened to all since May 10!
