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.

InkyDeals is shutting down

We are saying “so long” to InkyDeals.

We have some sad news to share: InkyDeals will be shutting down on April 15, 2015.

Since launching in 2011, InkyDeals has been a home for freelancers to buy and find new resources to help them with everyday challenges. The InkyDeals community includes some engaged and loyal followers, but unfortunately, it hasn’t grown at the pace we had expected. Sadly, we’ve made the tough decision to shut down the website.

We want to thank our community for all their support — both the providers who shared their products with the world, and the people who needed some extra help or advice along the way. You’ve had a lot to contribute — and we’ve loved being alongside you.
