Hello People of Ello,
This week we launched a new Ello store and squashed some spam . We have some awesome opportunities for artists, get featured in Make Good, our disaster relief publication we’re teaming up with Dribbble on, have your work turned into an awesome minimal color palette with Design Seeds, and create a capsule collection with Mod Threads. We also have a great interview with måuudhi, and of course some art giveaways.
We just launched a new online store for Ello. Previously, we sold our quarterly magazine Not For Print on it’s own site, but as we prepare pre-sales for both Underscore and Make Good we needed a new general Ello store. We have some other bonus collabs that will be dropping soon as well. In the meantime you can pick up Not For Print Issue 01 — Censorship and Issue 02 — Resist.
Last week we implemented a new spam solution that should catch the majority of new spam accounts. That being said, if you do discover a spammy account, please flag it so our team can remove it from the site.
