Quark Launches ilovedesign.com a Community-based Web Site for Designers
Designers From All Over The World Can Be Inspired By Their Design Icons, Showcase Their Work And Rate Their Peers By Simply Visiting www.ilovedesign.com
DENVER - 2/27/2008 -
Quark Inc. announced today that it has launched a
community-based Web site for designers called ilovedesign.com. The Web site is
developed around an interactive and accessible community concept that was
inspired by a love for design. It features the work of leading industry
designers David Carson, Peter Saville, Chip Kidd, and many more and gives users
the opportunity to showcase their own work and become part of a design
On visiting the ilovedesign.com Web site, users are encouraged to join this
community by creating their own profiles and uploading samples of their own
design work. Users can also search, view, and rate designs uploaded by other
members and even contact them in a secure way. The content of the site will be
largely user generated and the aim is to create a platform where designers can
showcase their work, be inspired by the work of others, and discuss their love
Video testimonials from influential designers including Carson, Saville, and
Kidd provide inspiration for users, as they can watch and listen to their heroes
tell their own stories, debate the relevance of design in today’s world, and
contemplate its future. Designers can also learn how leading global brands, such
as the Salvation Army, Metro International, Design Week, and many others, are
using QuarkXPress® 7 and view samples of some of their work.
"This is a very cool platform for all designers to have their work seen, as
well as to discuss, debate and even rate others work!" said David Carson. "I’m
looking forward to seeing what goes up from around the world, as I’m sure
there’ll be some really interesting, fresh stuff."
The Web site is part of an overall campaign (designed and delivered with
neoco.com) which comprises of a design of the week competition, seminars with
leading designers, a Facebook application called 'What font are you?', e-mail
marketing, and online and offline media, with all activity focusing on
harnessing the creativity of today’s designers. The campaign runs from 14th Feb
to the 15th June and builds on the love theme from Quark’s highly successful
'Fall in love with QuarkXPress 7' campaign.
"We believe we have created a site that will genuinely inspire and excite
designers. There are so many social sites at the moment, but none that are
specifically aimed at designers and enable them to showcase their work. We don’t
see this as a Quark® Web site but as a Web site where designers can become part
of a community and which gives them a forum to share ideas, chat, comment,
critique, and generally discuss what inspires them most," said Gavin Drake,
Quark marketing director.
