This week we opened submissions to our second Ello Guest Editor Artist Invite, our first Guest Editor Badson is dropping hot editorials for the next 30 days, Make Good is closed of submissions and selections are in process (you can pre-order the publication at a 20% discount in the mean time), we are still accepting submissions for the Creative Debuts invite, we interview Matt W. Moore (a personal art hero), and of course some amazing Art Giveaways.
We’ll have a new iOS app ready to download sometime next week, it includes a new posting experience among other things.
We are still hammering on a spam solution. Literally our entire (very small) team is working on it. We appreciate your patience, we’re making some really good progress.
Ello Guest Editor Artist Invite
Become Ello’s next Guest Editor. This is an opportunity to work directly with our curatorial team and publish the art, design & ideas of your choosing directly to Ello’s homepage.
Hype your own art. Hype a friend’s art. Bring your curatorial viewpoint and aesthetic to the Ello community.
Guest editor curation to run from January 3 - 31, 2018.
Our current guest editor Kyle (@badson) is sharing “The Typographer’s Dream Book Shelf — 90 Books I’d love to have on my typographically minded bookshelf.” Keep an eye on the homepage for big name type books, but also specimens, zines, and other printed pieces that get overlooked.

Meet Artist Matt W. Moore
Matt Moore (@mwm_graphics) works to the mantra ‘range is conducive to growth.’ Matt’s background was in action board sports and the action art of graffiti, each with their core value of speed, do-it-yourself ethic, enthusiasm for new terrain, and sheer fun of collaboration. Over the past decade, he has applied those principles to his bold, graphic aesthetic in media both analog and digital, for projects both personal and commercial.
Read the full interview.
