Our Content

We believe in publishing content that is interesting and helpful for our audience. Our followers are a mix of designers in logo design, branding, UIUX, marketing and other niches, current and prospective designers as well as design enthusiasts. Our main aim is to post content that is engaging and useful for our target audience.

When submitting a post or an idea, you should keep in mind the three main prerequisites for our content:

Originality

The content must be original work and must not have been published anywhere else.

Innovation

Choose topics that have not already been covered. Feel free to be creative while also keeping in mind the writing style of the blog.

Accuracy

Any data or facts in the articles should be backed up with their sources.

Our Posts

Our posts are divided into a number of categories. The details of categories that you may submit for are as follows:​

"How To" tutorials

These posts involve step-by-step instructions that aim to simplify all aspects of the creative process. If you are an artist and would like to share your knowledge, do write to us!​

Your Experience

Share your success story with us. It would be an inspiration for our audience. Write a brief introduction, a story of YOU. What were the difficulties at the beginning. Your future plans and some suggestions (something useful to newbies).

Marketing Tips

These posts mostly contain advisory content for our prospective audience. We guide our audience about the different aspects of marketing and management. If you are a marketing expert and have some tips for these future designers, give us a shout!

Bullet Lists

These posts are the most classic, those that list tips, or websites, or recommended products. The list can vary, from a minimum of 7 up to lists as long as 30-40 points. Each point must contain a detailed description.

Reviews

Do you have any products to recommend that are worth exploring in a dedicated blog post? This is the right category! Write about a product you use that could change the lives of our readers.

Other ideas

Even if your article does not fit either of these categories, we also accept other kind of posts as well! We believe that there is always room for improvements and improvisations.
