Whether you are looking for inspiration for projects, or seeking a little mental vacation in your day, welcome to Design Seeds … for all who love color.
“All the flowers of all the tomorrows are in the seeds of today.” ~ Indian Proverb
Powered 100% through the support of Sponsors and Patrons, Design Seeds is a site of reciprocity ... relying on readers to “tip” in lieu of running ads that track behavior & collect data.
"It’s humbling to think my little passion project blog from 2009 has grown to be the Design Seeds site of today. This has 100% to do with the loyalty of readers and your incredible grassroots support.
Over these past nine years, the interwebs have changed dramatically, challenging both readers and publishers in epic ways. Being a huge believer in the power of blogging and online community, I also acknowledge that the honor codes of years past have mutated. User data is being misused and sold at alarming rates, while mega ad networks have a stranglehold on publishers’ livelihoods. Poor behavior and practices have soured reader experience, while indie blogs & sites are becoming extinct.
All this has inspired me to try and change the paradigm from my colorful corner of the interwebs, in the hopes your direct support will allow us to go forward with transparency and reciprocity.
Design Seeds will no longer run network ads, and Analytics tracking has been removed from the site. In addition to the goods sold in the Seeds Studio Shop and Sponsor support for features such as the seasonal atlas, reader tips will now fund the site’s operations. Financial realities combined with wanting to provide a respectful experience for you, have led me to this solution in hopes we can all go forward in full color.
Thank you for your time, consideration, & support. Wishing you endless flowers in all your tomorrows."
