Resources & Inspiration for the Artistically Curious
Hi guys, I’m Jim Viola and I run this here design bliggity blog. I know a lot of you are just stopping by to pick up free vectors and then you’ll be on your way, but I just wanted to let you know that I think that is awesome. One of my goals with starting this blog was to help designers who are strapped for time with projects by offering them some of my designs free of charge. 2012 was a pretty stellar year with over 43,000 page views (which comes out to be just under 827 views a week), a number I wasn’t even hitting per month when I first started the blog two years ago. So from the bottom of my heart I wanted to say thank you to everyone who visited and to all the blogs who featured my simple vectors this year especially: http://www.Abduzeedo.com, http://www.Tympanus.com, and http://www.photoshopvip.com.
The new year brings a fresh start with it and I hope that I can continue to impress my readers with entertaining and original content including the revival of my Moody Mondays segment as well as some others like Designer Primer and Freebie Fridays. Unfortunately my time has been unequally divided between my new job, freelance, and video games so I haven’t had time to gather or create new content for the blog, but with the reduction of freelance work for the new year I plan on putting that energy back into pumping fresh blood into this site. One of my new goals this year will be to deliver quality/original writing content that will encourage and embolden young designers to keep seeking out new opportunities and making the most of their current contacts.
Like it was in the beginning, this blog is and will continue to be about spreading knowledge and providing quality content to those seeking help and answers about design. I hope you all have a safe and health 2013 and I look forward to interacting with you on Twitter and in the comments section.
Happy New Year!
