CRTextAndTypography is a group dedicated to the Text Art and Typography Community/ies on deviantART
What the group is about
- Showcasing and collecting Daily Deviations
- Posting and collecting articles
- Notifying about contests; ones that are officially held by me in my position as Community Volunteer and others coming from the community, maybe even external ones.
- Hosting community challenges
Admins and Members
Anybody can join as a Member; you don't have to leave a message to join the group, it's totally auto-approved
Admins have certain privileges, as f.e. submitting journals directly to the group's journal, access to the admin area etc.. They are also in a position to help create challenges, contests and other projects. Admins however are not auto-approved; if you do want to join as admin, please add a good reason as to why you think you want to help out. There is yet not much to do for admins, but a certain love for typography (obviously) and motivation to work with the community are necessary.
Submitting Art/Gallery Folders
Here is a little overview of the group's folders and how they are maintained:
Featured: I will personally submit every Daily Deviation set from the Digital and Traditional Typography galleries and the Digital Text Art gallery into the "Featured" folder It has such a nice name, I'm going to keep it for featured DDs
Challenges: There will be folders created for upcoming challenges. Any deviation following the rules of those challenges will be accepted. There will be an article for each challenge, containing previous challenge's submissions and the new challenge. (The folders don't exist yet, they will be created with every new challenge announcement)
Tutorials: A collection of educational articles and tutorials.
Articles: Journals and News articles about Text Art and Typography, contest announcements, other related journal/news deviations.
Contests: In the future new folders for contests hosted by me as a CV may be added to the gallery.
I am not sure whether I will have them open at all. From my experience group's favourites are hardly ever viewed by anyone. On the other hand deviations can be in them, without the owner having to vote on it. For now "Favourites" shall remain closed.
Admins will be able to submit journals into the group's actual journal while uploading the journal. This can also be done retroactive. Simply check the group when in the submission proccess.
If you have already written Typography related articles and would like to submit them to the group's journal let me know. You can always submit them to the gallery, too. The choice is up to you
If you are owner of a Typography group, you are welcome to affiliate with CRTextAndTypography To do so simply go to your own group and click on the "Affiliate" link on the profile menu; then type in this groups name (or copy paste, I would recommend that ) and the request is send and will be accepted. Of course only if the focus of the group is in fact Text Art or Typography.
What this is not
This group is not open for all submissions. As mentioned above, submissions will only contain DDs, tutorials and articles and challenge/contest submissions. Anything that does not follow these rules will not be accepted. This place is not a "deviation dump"
Last but not least…
I appreciate every new watcher and member of this group This is all very new (and this sentence will have to be edited one day, as I want this to be an "About" page ) and I hope this group can support me in my position as Community Volunteer.
