I'm a generalist. I create and learn new things everyday, going from graphic designer to editor to web designer and developer is just what I do for fun. Do what you love, love what you do.

An idea worth spreading
Today the world in moving forward in every aspect - technology, business, education, healthcare - but what about creativity? Tests (Such as Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking) have shown that over the decades our IQ scores have kept growing, but has shown a decline in creative thinking. In other words, we are smarter, yet less equipped to find novel approaches to problems.
Creativity applies to almost anything, and everyone is creative in their very own way - they just need to discover it and apply it to everything they do. A creative world is a better world.
I'm passionate about
Studying medicine, spreading creativity, making art, developing new technologies and solutions through creative thinking.

New Contest: What it's LikeContest themeAeirmid
Hey, mental-health members!! Are you ready for a new contest? (Say yes or nod your head vigorously!!)
The theme of this contest is: What it's Like.
In other words, you should show or describe what it's like to live with a mental illness or to love or care for someone with mental illness. You can do this, for example, by personifying or anthropomorphizing mental illness or by depicting its impact. But, you don't have to do it that way. We want to know what this experience is like for you. How would you describe or represent it?
The parameters of this contest are as follows:
The contest begins on January 27th and ends on March 9th (6 weeks).You can use any kind of medium you choose (or feel free to use mixed media). That means writing is just as acceptable as drawing. For simplicity, there will only be one category this time, rather than one for literature and one for visual art.For
10 Years!As per tradition, I forgot about my anniversary of working at DeviantArt. Luckily good guy Ikue has been at it for 5 years as of last weekend, and I for 10 years as of this Monday. Oddly enough I realized that anniversary closeness only now.Thunderstatement
In hindsight, those 10 years flew by, but 10 years are 10 years and that's a lot of time. Looking back, I'm glad I joined DA when it was only 3 years old and was asked to join the staff when it was barely 5 years old.
For a little back story, back then I was very active in the old Prints forum as a regular deviant, and one fine day lolly (who was on the Prints team back then) asked me if I wanted to work for DeviantArt in a print related capacity (% quality control!) and that was that. That was my role for a few years and then transitioned over to what we now know as the Community Operations team as a help desk person, primarily.
I've got very clos
The Art of DesignArchitecture is one of the most impressive artforms in this world. To create something that will leave its mark on the world for up to centuries to come is absolutely incredible. It is also something that we often overlook or don't think about. Architectural Photography is yet another incredible artform, I hope you'll enjoy this feature of it.Mrs-Durden

The Timeline of deviantARTThe Timeline of deviantARTbradleysays
In 2014, DeviantArt turned 14 years old. Fourteen years is a long time, some of you reading this may be younger than that. I've gathered some historical information with the help of Moonbeam13 and some members of the Community Relations team to help enlighten those of you who have joined in recent years and missed out on a chunk of DeviantArt's life.
I hope you enjoy taking a step back in time!
Please note: it is extremely difficult to track down some events in DeviantArt's history (in particular, the first few years) and that some dates are only approximate.
August: tech13 becomes the first recipient of the prestigious Deviousness Award.
