Designer of the Moment

Over the years we've had many talented graphic designers, digital artists, and computery-art people come through the community that is ZU.
A few of them, though, have taken the time to let us see just how talented they are, through tutorials, galleries, and sigshops. This thread is where we'll honor them.

This is...

Logo and name are subject to change.

About DotM:
DotM is a new endeavor to bring the spotlight onto the extremely talented graphic designers, digital artists, and other computery-graphics people we have here on ZU. The artists get Artist of the Moment, and the gfx'ers deserve something just as good.

This will also help bring more people to our wonderful Graphics Design board here in our home away from home, the Creativity Corner. When people see this, as well as when they see AotM, they'll feel inspired to be just as good as the people who've been featured, and we'll get more gorgeous graphics to stare at until our eyes fall out. ;3
How you can help:
This isn't just going to be some staff-selected person who a few site staffers and mods think is okay to be the DotM. We want YOU to help us decide who's currently the best graphics maker person on ZU. You can do this pretty easily, believe it or not.

Just send me a PM entitled "DotM Nomination" or at least something along those lines. We'll put their name in the sorting hat and put them in a house based on their personality, interests, and inner thoughts weigh their good qualities and bad qualities to find the perfect one to receive this honor.
List of Award Recipients:

_____________________________________________


Now without further ado,
Our first ever Designer of the Moment is...


Navii_!

Navii_ is rather new here at ZU, but that doesn't change the fact that she has amazing and experienced graphical talent. Soon after joining up, she opened a signature shop here in the GD, and her popularity skyrocketed. Her signatures are very traditional (in a good way!) in the world of sig banners, but they all have a certain flair that only she can achieve.
Here's some examples of her work done on ZU so far:
Spoiler: Look inside for Navii_'s work!  

Not only does she have a sig shop, but she also has a tutorial "classroom." Instead of doing tutorials individually, she has her Navii_ themed tutorials all in one convenient thread, as if it was a classroom on how to make graphics as good as hers. You can find the tutorial thread here. Be sure to post your results after following these awesome tutorials in the classroom!

As is the same with the Artist of the Moment, her sig shop/graphics gallery will be stickied with the tag [Designer of the Moment], so you can find it easier. It will be this way for the next month.
The End:
And that concludes our first ever Designer of the Moment. Please remember to PM me any nominations you may have for next month's designer so that you can be a part of someone achieving this award!

Re: Designer of the Moment

Ou!! Just like Artist of the Moment! Nice idea Caleb!

I'm glad Navii_\Kayla got this. She's really good at making graphics and it's overall great to look at over and over again.

Congradulations missy ^_^

Re: Designer of the Moment

I can do one of two things:
1) I can make a custom rank banner of my own style for you
2) Or I can bug EL to make one, despite the fact that she's kinda half-site staff right now.
Which would you prefer?

Re: Designer of the Moment

A new Designer of the Moment appears!


Snurtlicious!


Snurt popped up on ZU in September of last year, and soon became a member we all love. He opened a graphics shop about a month later, and immediately became one of our SotW regulars, as well as one of our best shopkeepers. And unlike some of our sigshop people, his shop has never been closed, even despite real life getting in the way every once in a while.

Here's some of his work as of late, with some of his first posted stuff on the third row, and a showcase on the bottom.
Spoiler: Snurtlicious Examplesss  






Snurt, we all hope you continue making us your awesome graphics! They're fun to look at, and without them the GD would feel a little empty. Your sigs are hawt, just like youuu~
You can find Snurt's shop here, or up in the stickied threads in the Graphics Design forum, alongside this thread.


Be sure to come back next month (with even more nominations) for the next DotM!

Re: Designer of the Moment

Wow, I'm so surprised.

I... I don't know what to say, I just want to thank The Academy that nominated me for this, My Parents, and Taylor, without whom none of this would've been possible. *Swoon*

Jokes aside, Thanks so much, Graphics friends, this really means a lot to me. It's nice to know that I'm appreciated.

Re: Designer of the Moment

HIYA GUYS! ;D

Today's thursday, so it's a week and 3 days until the next DotM is announced.
I've yet to receive nominations on ANY of the DotM's from people outside of staff, and would love it if you guys would send me some. Remember, this isn't just a staff elected thing; we want you guys to be in on it!

You can send me nominations in a really easy way, remember. Just PM me a name! That's all you gotta do (other than make the subject DotM). So send me someee~!

In other news, E3 is over, so how about we talk about it over in the convomatic? Some of the graphics of these games are stunning. :3

Re: Designer of the Moment

HIYA AGAIN EVERYONE!

I hate to count down the days but this thing isn't really ever gonna work to its full potential if I don't get any nominations.

If you received my mass PM last night, you saw the banners I'd love if we could get put on tons of people's signatures. It would promote this awesome event and get us some nominations. So if you saw the PM and were like LOL NO DAS NOT WORTH IT, pleeease reconsider.

And now, go talk about E3 in the convomatic. Not even kidding. I wanna know what you guys think!
