Abduzeedo takes pride in being one of the worlds leading design blogs.

Our new cutting edge Abduzeedo collaboration project, which will give you the possibility to collaborate and compete with the worlds leading designers and artists.
What is "The World Collabs"?
"The World Collabs" will give you the possibility to work with PSD files of established artists. TWC gives you a secret in-view in the workflow of the stars and catapults you miles forward in your journey to design heaven. This way you learn to practice with different shapes, backgrounds, patterns brushes and new styles.
Every month we will offer you an unfinished piece of an experienced and accredited graphic designer to the world.
The piece will be unfinished, so you can complete the PSD-file with your very own style. This way every month you can collaborate with the best designers of the world. The final pieces will be judged by the Abduzeedo Team and the artist himself. The three best works will be rewarded with prizes.
- 1. $ 200 (send via PayPal), an approval for an original collaboration with the artist and a feature on Abduzeedo
- 2. $ 100 (send via PayPal)
- 3. A Single Version of image editing program Pixelmator (worth 59 $)
- 4. A Copy of the Logo Book "Lords of Logos" (worth 55 $)
Artist of July: James White
I am very proud to present the artists for our third Collaboration post: James White. In his 11-year career he worked for a number of professional companies performing both web and print design, gaining experience through a wide variety of projects and clients, both large and small.
He is one of our favorites at Abduzeedo and has been featured in numerous articles and interviews ( Interview: James White ).
I have always been pursuing my personal design and art projects on my own time. This led to me creating Signalnoise.com, my personal art blog which serves as a conduit to the global art community and has become a source for spreading inspiration, process and technical information. This eventually grew into an online store where I sell my posters to people all over the world.
