Happy Tuesday! I hope 2017 is starting off right for everyone.
We updated our handle to
ellohype on all of the social places we hang out on. If you aren’t already, follow us on whichever of the above platforms you dig to get the best of the best on Ello.
We just launched our Snapchat account. Add us to see what life is like at the Ello office.
New category: Cannabis
Explore the culture, industry and art of cannabis as it evolves from a small underground sub-culture to the modern mainstream. Check out the growing industry, shifting perceptions and the people pushing the boundaries and breaking down stigmas.
You may have come across this update via our new announcement system. You will now find a special notification type that is stuck to the top of your notifications. We will use these to better distribute #productupdates like these, but to also highlight community members making incredible work.
There is also a new iOS version available in the app store that also includes the announcement system
@loladupre art giveaway
Congrats to @paulbines for winning an amazing piece of collage from @loladupre. Lola held an art giveaway all on her own, but we loved it so much we’re scheming up a way to make these sorts of things a regular events around here. Supporting artists and giving art to art lovers, sounds super good to us.
Not For Print update
We know everyone is anxious to get their copies of NFP. So are we! The magazines are printed and bound. We have 10 sample copies sitting on my desk. Unfortunately, there was a TINY printing error. We are perfectionists here, so we worked with the printer to make it right. Otherwise the magazine is looking fucking great.
We apologize for the delay, but it will be worth it. In the meantime we have left the pre-order price up for an extended period until magazines are actually shipping. Hold tight, we’ll keep you posted.
Barring any additional hiccups, Not For Print should ship by the end of this week or early next.
We closed out 2016 with the product & engineering teams focused on performance. We’re close to shipping a handful of enhancements and we have many more lined up. While these kind of updates may not be sexy, your Ello experience will be drastically improved. Don’t worry, there’s some cool new experience stuff coming soon.
