Patience has a limit. Tell me honestly all designers when they receive their earned money?
The top part of the site is important real-estate. Now that we removed contests, how do you think we should re-design it. Please let us know your ideas.
• We just make the search bigger and fill the whole area.
• Add Browsing options.
• Use the space for announcements?
• Use it as description of the site and move the menu up on the left.
We asked the audience of Brands of the World: designers, printing house operators and other professionals working in the design field: What vector app do you use?
We received 179 responses that break down as follows:
- Creative Cloud: 65
- CS6: 62
