A message from `depthskins
and his vision for #designerscouch
For those of you that know me would know I've been working on a non-profit design community/organization called Designers'Couch. It's a place for designers to meet, develop and grow their skills. The donation link below will explain much more of what the project entails. What makes DC unique is the structure, ideas and principles which you'll come to understand once you read the information on the donation page. This is not just about another social community website; it's an organization for freelance designers to professional designers. The group of people that cannot or care not to be a part of aiga.org or rgdontario.com.
What I'm doing now is reaching out to family, friends, clients, past clients and business associates to make a donation. The idea is that if 200 people donate $10 it would be enough to cover 1/3 of development costs. If you're looking for holistic figures for the cost of this project, it's approximately $25k to launch this site as I truly envision. Every cent of your donation will be put towards the development of the website which has a ton of features to gauge our members and inspire our audience.
This project is already underway, the designs are completed, database creation completed and the various modules being completed. The first demo is expected to go live in January and donors who are designers will get first jab at this. You will also be a founding member within the community.
When this site goes live, it's gonna be huge and surpass websites like Behance.net
Be a part of it, donate now
