The Public is more familiar with bad design than good design. It is, in effect, conditioned to prefer bad design, because that is what it lives with. The new becomes threatening, the old reassuring.

Liquisoft has been a supporter of Deviant Art early since its inception. His vivid and creative style produces dozens of astonishing deviations, making him one of the most talented artists on this site.

Happy Birthday to deviantART!

Hard to believe this hole-in-the-wall is 13 years old...and not a hole-in-the-wall anymore.
It's safe to say my life and career would in no way resemble what they do today had I not popped over to deviantART 13 years ago and started uploading my art.
Thanks for the memories, the growth, and the education, dA!

you've been a huge inspiration of mine for nearly a decade, ever since that soft white liquisoft website you designed.
