The Evolution of Design By Humans

posted by DBHstaff • 2 years ago
Hello Humans

Hello Humans,

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.

What if I want to apply to be a DBH Artist but I don’t have a store?
Is just I was thinking on submitting some designs I have made, and this is all new to me I’ve never sold them before and I’ve never joined such process. Sorry to ask but I’m trying to figure out how becoming a DBH artist works before I do anything. I kind of need more info on this I guess?

Awful, horrible changes… makes no sense. The DBH I used to know and love has now died completely…

do you know if there is a way to see which designs are new and which are bumped?
this feature would be nice if it doesnt exist..
maybe a date in every design would help in that..

cant artists bump some older design to be shown as new , meaning in newer pages?
cause im sure i saw some older designs showing up again..

Inked Inked Human from California, United States

Not unless they completely delete the product and re-upload it which would cause it to lose any ranking it had, all it’s sales history etc. There is no way to bump anything in the New page. It displays products from newest to oldest only.

currently there are only 30 pages, meaning 1800 designs?how can i see more?

We’ve been considering making it possible to page through more than 30 pages, but our data says most people rarely look through even half before purchasing.

Search is your best friend after you’ve exhausted the 30 pages. It’s much better than it used to be.
