Suit Inky Up For Halloween And Win Inky’s Brand New Bundle

Are you up for a new Halloween adventure? Inky wants to feel this year’s terrifying Halloween vibe, and you have all the skills necessary to design a special Halloween party. So Inky planned a new contest for all of you who stand by him during the spookiest night of the year!

So what’s the most awaited part of any successful Halloween party? Exactly, the costumes of course! And the costumes will be the main focus of Inky’s contest.

Here’s what you need to do: go to Inky’s Facebook page and download InkyDeals PNG logo. Then unleash your wicked creativity and suit Inky up with that unique Halloween costume you have in mind. Make Inky’s costume be seen by the entire world by attaching it in a comment at Inky’s Halloween Facebook post: Halloween Costume Contest.

And Inky’s rewards will surely match the power of the evilest monster you’ll ever encounter! The 5 costumes that will scare our designers the most will be repaid with Inky’s brand new bundle that is full of goodies! Not only that, but the grand winner’s creation will be featured on InkyDeals website the entire Halloween day!

Warning: Contest ends Thursday, October 29th at midnight CST!

So join Inky’s Halloween Costume Party and enjoy the magic of the holiday with your fellow designers around the world!

 

Why Our New Bundle May Be in Danger and How You Can Help

Let us introduce you to Doink. He’s our lead designer, and he’s in charge of coordinating and delivering this new bundle we’ve been telling you about lately.

But guess what? Tens of cups of coffee and cold pizza slices later…he’s had enough. Because working on these massive collections sure isn’t easy. And if a picture is worth a thousand words – well, he doesn’t look very happy nowadays (just check out the second photo!).

So, if you guys want to get the bundle on time, help us encourage Doink and give him a creative boost. Send all your positive vibes and warm wishes for him in the comment section below.

A happy Doink is a productive Doink, and that means only one thing: you’ll be able to get this fresh and brand new bundle sooner than you think 🙂

Update June 26th 2015: 

Hi guys, Doink here.

I just got here to say thank you so much for your kind words and support, you have really shown me how much  my work matters and how much it influences yours. I’m really glad you find it useful. It has been an insane amount of work and coordination in the last few months, and now, thanks to you, I can say relieved that it was all worth it.  I will not stop here, I will continuously improve every new product, one after another.

There is something I have to say about the new bundle, something that only a fellow designer can: it has been built with purpose, to feel its usefulness the minute you’ve finished downloading it.

 These are my own tools, the ones I personally use for my own projects. They’re not meant to do the work for you, but to work WITH you. It’s like having a personal bag of tricks, filled with gizmos that do a thing in just a fraction of the time it would take to do it yourself. Every package is compact, and carries a large amount of tools within arm’s reach.

Let’s look at a situation we’ve both found ourselves in, many times: looking for decorations to brush up the final designs, and we always go to the same folders, filled with beautifully drawn clip art. Now the question is, which one do we use first? Well, no more!

Each of the ten categories have the option to open them all in a single file. Be honest, there were times when you too asked yourself “What was the name of that file with those pretty flowers in it?”, then spend another twenty minutes looking for it. But now, you just open a single file and pick up whatever you need. Simple as that.

There is much more to say, but I’m going to stop here. I’ll let you discover on your own the true power of this bundle.

Again, I’d like to thank you for your kind words, you’ve shown a designer neck-deep in work that it is truly worth the effort. Thank you!

Have an excellent day,

Doink

 

P.S.: If you have any tech questions about the items in the bundle, or want to know more on how to combine the tools for unexpected and fantastic results, let me know in the comments on this post.

Do you still get chased by dinosaurs while you work?

It’s Throwback Thursday and Inky is here to take you on a trip down memory lane! And because we’re going to do a little time traveling, here’s a map that can guide you through the different milestones in the history of graphic design.

Nowadays it’s easier than ever to be a successful designer, don’t you agree?

You still have to deal with clients from hell, but, at least, you don’t run the risk of being eaten up alive by a dinosaur while exercising your craft:)! Plus, you have tons of online resources right at your fingertips!

Why don’t we say hi to each other?

Believe it or not, but here at InkyDeals we are pretty close to each other. Given that we’re a small team, we do a lot of things together: go to movies, throw awesome parties, and sometimes we even spend the holidays together.

And even when we’re not in the same office, we chat a lot online and send each other pictures with what we’re doing.

Here’s this year’s first trip to the seaside:

seaside-trip-blog

 

A casual walk in the park:

walk-in-the-park-blog

 

We have a new family member:

maya-blog

(It’s pretty obvious that I’m not good at taking selfies).

 

Or this one that you’ve probably seen on Facebook:

hi-guys-blog

 

That got us thinking.

Since the InkyDeals community is so huge and you guys are from all over the world, why don’t WE say hi to each other as well?

So, here’s the plan:

1. Take a picture or make a video of yourself saying hi to Inky from your house, office or a trip, and letting us know where you’re from. A simple selfie with a piece of paper will do the trick.

2. Post it on your Facebook page, using the hashtag #InkySelfie, and give us the link to your post in the comments section here. If you want, you can also send us the image at dan@inkydeals.com.

3. We’ll gather all the pictures and videos we receive from you, show them to absolutely everyone in the design community, and spread some love all over the internet! The most original photo will receive a special prize, but everyone who participates gets an awesome gift worth $315, from the Ultimate Design Library.

 

***UPDATE***

And here are a couple of selfies from some of our friends:

And something we don’t see everyday.

This campaign will end on Monday, September 15, 2014. So don’t miss your chance to get a free gift worth $315!

 

So what do you say? Are you in or not?

Looking forward to seeing you!
