We’re starting the week off strong with an all new member profile design, the introduction of the Collaborate Button and Watch a Post. Here’s the breakdown:
Today we took the first step towards allowing you to really own your profile. In the not-so-distant future we’re going to empower you to fully customize your profile, enabling Ello to serve as a website (with custom domains), blog or portfolio – while continuing to evolve as a highly networked creators space. With this update we’ve totally redesigned the profile section of your page. The background image is now full screen, with a larger avatar and all of your info center-aligned to give us more room to expand on profile details. And there are more bells and whistles coming to profiles very soon.
We are launching new profiles on Web and Android today. iOS will follow shortly.
At Ello we’re committed to putting the creator first. That means we’re building tools for you to support yourself financially. We started with the Buy Button and Hire Me Buttons and today we’re rolling out the Collaborate Button. With the Collaborate Button others creators can now contact you privately to discuss opportunities to collaborate. Our aim is to facilitate deeper connections while empowering you to develop your creative career. So, let’s collaborate.
