Josephs Third Year at WinCustomizeAs of the 30th of September 2007
Hello Everyone,Today is my 3rd Birthday at WinCustomize, and it's been an amazing journey!
Since signing up back in 2004, My Skinning and Digital Design skills have grown so much.
Thanks to some of my inspirational artists, like danillo0c, Tiggz & Mike Bryant, my interest in Interface Design has never faded.
Starting my year with my very cruddy BootSkin, BlockXP
, the feedback I had received was and still is so warming. And you will only ever get such feedback at WinCustomize. Until this day, I still find it difficult understanding how WinCustomize has maintained it's caring and kind community in this day and age of cyber expression and demise.
The only reason I have still kept skinning is because of communication from community members, starting from my first BootSkin. Until this day, BlockXP has fetched 2000 downloads, and as my first submission, 500 Downloads seemed like a whopping number. That alone, was enough to make me think that one day, I too could be like one of my skinning heroes.
Today, I stand with just over 750,000
I'm a ObjectDesktop Subscriber, and have submitted over 150
I turned 18 on December 12, 2006, and one day hope to be working as a professional Interface Designer or a Web Designer.
Some may be curious as to what i've been up to, since my last suite, Slate-X back in January. Well, I've been slowly developing my own website, JosephsART Designs and Portfolio
. All my skins are hosted there, as well as my forum. I've recently created a shopping cart which I hope to be able to use to create Premium Skins. You can sign up to my website it too!
Besides my Website, I've been working on 2 Suites;Astyanax
. You can check out some previews of them, over at JosephsART!
Each suite will be 100% Vista Compatible. In Fact, They've been in design since the beta releases of WindowBlinds 5.5 for Vista. I currently run 2 OS's, One being Vista, and the Other XP. So I can run full tests on both suites, so everyone can use them!
Well, that's about it from me, Woot for 3 Years!
Thanks to everyone who's supported my work, without you, I wouldn't be here!
