Designn Magazine Contest (Custom Journal Skin) by UJz   Honey, We're Getting a MonsterfancyQUACKS
A really hungry one...
Naughty monsters are running rampant in the city again - you know the kind! They're short, noisy and make constant mischief on our doorsteps; begging for candy despite buying perfectly good pumpkins the same day. What's their dastardly plan for all that food? They're up to no good and must be stopped.
We should feed the trick-or-treaters - to hungry, real monsters! There's a critter-shaped hole to this plan: we don't actually have any real monsters. But all we need are your designs to put into my Monster Making Machine to release them into the suburbs! Trick-or-treaters - gobbled up for good!
How does this work? I'm glad you asked. The "Monster Maker 2000" is my old, modified microwave and this invention will create flesh-and-blood monsters from designs. A little energy combined with your designs will help bring our glorious abomination to life.

Bio


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.

Work


Founder of Designn, Editor-in-Chief of Designn Magazine and Co-Founder of Soosci.

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.

So back in 2011 I started a project called Designn (www.designn.org) whose goal is to educate about, inform about and spread creativity worldwide by offering various free services to the community - for example Publishing free digital magazines, creating creative blogs, funding free resources, spreading creativity through social media, promoting arts and crafts, and so on.

I'm passionate about


Studying medicine, spreading creativity, making art, developing new technologies and solutions through creative thinking.

Premium Membership Giveaway! - Launch!

Fri Oct 31, 2014, 12:21 AM


La la la la 

I'm super excited to introduce to you a new service I just created and launched called inPres! It's all about bringing your online presence onto a single page, a growing social media hub for everything you!

So in celebration I decided to run a Premium Membership giveaway on DevaintART. For every 100 members joining us I'll be giving away a 3 month Premium Membership to a random Deviant chosen with the help of random.org

How to Enter


Bullet; Blue  Create your own free profile at inpres.me/
Bullet; Blue  Leave a comment here with a link to your inPres page
Bullet; Blue  Fav this journal
Bullet; Blue  Optional: Added to my devWatch! me so that you'll get any future updates Heart 

Optional for an extra chance: Share the image below with a link to inpres.me  and this journal wherever you can and link to it on your comment!



About inPres


InPres is a beautiful way to present yourself online. Combining everything from RSS feeds to Tweets, Instagram photos and more to create an elegant profile. Present yourself in style. Make a lasting impression. Online.

I've looked at a hundred online portfolio creators, website hosts, user profile generators and social feed aggregators; and the only thing they had in common were the extremely complex interface or the fact that they looked utterly horrible. That’s why I created InPres. Anyone can signup for free in less than 60 seconds and own their very own beautifully crafted and elegant profiles.

Add your RSS feeds, twitter fees, Instagram photos and many more features to come by simply signing up with twitter. 

Extras


I'll checkout every single profile you setup and if it's complete and awesome I'll feature your profile to all our members in the introductions section!

Any questions? Feel free to ask in the comments section below!
