You may have noticed some changes around here. In our quest to empower artists we have decided to empower more of them. From this day forward we will be featuring a Design of the Day from our Collective stores on the homepage where artists will receive maximum exposure and an additional increase in their royalty rate for 24 hours!
So what is going to happen to the Shirt of the Day Contests?
The Collective’s success has shown us that our community wants choice and personalized goods. The contest rewarded one artist with a large cash prize, which sounds great but did little for the majority of our artists. The daily contest has been a big part of DBH by offering voting and interaction for our community, but it can no longer support our rising number of artists and their needs for growth.
Design By Humans needs to evolve and our customers have shown us where they want to go. This will provide opportunity for more artists to get more exposure on our website and share more revenues! Alongside Design of the Day, we will feature artists and their stores, and instead of one highlighted artist we’ll have MANY featured artists on the homepage.
What happens to the special contests?
Our partner contests will still happen. We have lots of interest from many companies to run contests and as you know we hand select those that we choose to do. They will still yield large prizes and on top of that we will have many more opportunities for artists to partner with brands and companies.
Is the Tee Grinder gone forever?
Nope. We haven’t closed it down for good but we do want to make sure we use it in a way that is beneficial to our customers and our artists. We are also looking for new ways to provide benefits and value to our community.
Is DBH becoming like those other sites?
We have heard these rumblings in the community and want you to know we have some great things in store for our humans! We have increased our incentive payouts, and will soon be offering more diverse stores and art styles. We are expanding our DBH home team to support, motivate and guide artists through our process to amplify their amazing art. We also plan to offer more apparel items besides just Tshirts. We hope you like our changes and soon see that they are in the best interest in both the art community, our customers, and DBH.
We encourage any additional questions to be posted here, and we will respond back to you.
