Get Your Twitter On
Did you know that the NAPP (National Association of Photoshop Professionals) and Layers Magazine are on Twitter now? Do you Twitter? Well if you do, then this is your chance for worldwide fame…sort of.
Anyway, if you follow either NAPP News or Layers Magazine on Twitter, this is your chance to shine with this new design contest. The challenge is to design or re-design your Twitter home page. Now, I know that there limited features when it come to customizing your home page, but that’s where the real creativity comes in. Once you have completed a new page then simply post a link to it in the comments section of this blog post. The deadline for this little project is July 29, so have fun.
What will you win?
The first place winner will receive a copy of Scott Kelby’s Photoshop CS3 for Digital Photographers training DVD and a copy of Layers: The Complete Guide to Photoshop’s Most Powerful Feature by Matt Kloskowski.
Second Place will receive a copy of Illustrator Down & Dirty Tricks by Corey Barker, as well as the Illustrator Manifesto booklet and the Photoshop CS3 Hot Tips booklet.
Third Place will get one year subscription to Layers Magazine and the Photoshop CS3 Hot Tips booklet.
So get to it and have fun Twittering!!!

If it’s ok with everyone, I would like to submit my page for the contest. But I will understand if the judges decide to veto my entry.
Nothing fancy, but for my icon I incorporated my dragon monogram (hope you can see the dy initials based on ITC Simran typeface, the d is the body of the dragon, etc.). And the radial BG shape transformed in Photoshop and made into a custom shape. I had to tweak the sizing and orientation of the gif file because of the fixed twitter interface.
It’s good to see Layers, PhotoshopUser in this interesting space of Twitter.

I guess it helps to post the link, eh?
Possible problem – Twitter is choking on custom designs (among other things right now). I’m alternately missing my profile pic and page background on random loadings of the page. I know of many other users who are experiencing the same problem.
hmm … saw my comment on your page, but now it’s gone. Are you moderating comments, or should they appear as they’re added?
well – sorry if this gets double-posted … take 2
comments seem to be broken – i see a duplicate comment warning, however my comment does not appear on page.

sorry – i’m too impatient apparently
ah – seems your blog engine may have an overzealous spam filter. My officemate and I are both trying to post our twitter pages, from our desks, however we appear to the outside world to be one IP address. So, when he posts a comment, mine seem to disappear, and when I post my comment, his disappears. Weird!
okay – well sorry to everyone – apparently my coworker and I cannot post comments at the same time since our office has a single visible outbound IP address. Kinda sucks but whatever. In any case, so we don’t completely F up the comments here, I am going to post his twitter profile as well. Again, sorry to anyone annoyed by this problem.
Nothin’ fancy – just simple stuff… http://twitter.com/livepath

Here it is, until I change it again …
Ha! I just noticed I wrote “Here by ours” instead of “Here be ours.” My attempt to intentionally add poor grammar backfired due to my unintentionally poor grammar.
