  1. hey guys! i'm working on college apps and even though i've been inactive for a while, i want to write about tda in my essay! but i'm not exactly sure how to describe what we do. it's not exactly graphic design, right? so what do you think it should be called?

    1. saturn.


      I think back in the day when I was using tda and other forums for my college/internship apps (I'm 25 now, so like... a long time ago), I called it "graphic design and photo manipulation and editing"?

      P.S. We miss you! ❤️

  6. hi tomi! for the ultimate mythology challenge, do they have to be gods/goddesses? or can i use other characters from myths? i 'accidentally' made an orpheus banner before i read the challenge carefully D:

      I think that's fine! It's still from mythology, so it's all good :)

    1. Holster
