Earlier today, the Personas community welcomed it’s 10,000th art design and 7,000th artist into the Personas gallery. The project launched six weeks ago with a friendlier look and feel, improved functionality, and an expanded set of categories. Since that time, Personas has been downloaded over 3.5 million times and now has over 1 million active daily users.
Personas enables artists to treat the browser as their canvas. An important goal is to continue to provide artists with the tools they need to create original art, and share their work with a global audience. As part of this effort, we recently added “designer pages”, which gives each Personas artist an easily shareable page that showcases their creations.
The results have been inspiring. Many artists in the Personas community have been able to attract tens of thousands of active, engaged users of their art. Here are just some examples:
Between now and the 20,000th design, we’ll be actively looking for additional ways to give Personas artists a strong, easy-to-use platform for their work. If you have ideas, please discuss and debate them with the community in our discussion group. Finally, if you have an inner-artist, join thousands of others in the Personas community by creating your own Persona art work and sharing it our gallery for millions of people around the globe to enjoy.
