Submit, vote, WIN!
That is all there is to it right? Hmmm, well perhaps not my friends.
All our previous misconceptions of how an artist should go about their blog posting have gone out the window. Qimstudio has done a neat little trick to draw attention to his designs and also come up with a much better product, before the competition has even opened.
We stumbled across his tactic on the Springleap.com main site with his blog posting W.I.P-The Curse (work in process-The Curse).
Qimstudio is a designer with a bright future ahead of himself. Not only does he knock together some pretty awesome designs, but he also has a good knack for interacting with the community and making sure his design are as good as possible before entering. This is most evident through such techniques as the W.I.P-The Curse posting.
There are quite a few Springleap.com designers who will post their designs on their Facebook pages or perhaps their own websites. But Qimstudio is perhaps the first I have known to actually host his designs on a Springleap blog BEFORE the competition actually starts.
Not only does he create a buzz for his designs, but he asks for the community’s opinion and receives valuable feedback. This designer is truly making the community work for him in a way that does not feel imposing. Usually when designers host their designs it feels like a desperate cry for votes. However in the case of Qimstudio he has used a technique that gains him knowledge as well as a positive presence on the website.
