Support the Design Center & DTG Magazine
This opportunity lets you help the Design Center publications; DTG Magazine and Photoshop Tips & Tricks continue their free service to the visual arts industry; while giving you recognition you deserve for supporting the arts.
We love our Partners for their contributions... views or clicks !
When you support the arts, we believe you should receive due recognition -- whether it's clicks or impressions. Your $250 contribution to the Design Center aligns your online presence with one of the longest established, most trusted entities online -- since 1988. We'll say thank-you with:
- ROS BANNER BUTTON For 30-days we recognize you with a "Run of Site" button appearing on every page in the site. These do not rotate -- they are not replaced by other graphics, and they are not affected by ad blockers -- for 30-days, every visitor sees your recognition. (You can send your 125 x 125 pixel jpg or we are happy to create one for you) All you need to tell us is where it should take the viewer.
Recognition continues for ONE YEAR, listed on our Partners page. We acquaint our readers with you through a short review. We've recognized our partners in this directory for over 20 years. When you support the Design Center, this is your recognition.
We tell our readers about how you can benefit their professional activities in the site, and in the monthly DTG email newsletter; emailed to all subscribers -- most read, most trusted by readers. This also appears on the content area of the "DTG Magazine" page, and then in the department index page.
We appreciate your suppor with Recognition for being a supporter on the front page. For ONE YEAR we'll remind readers who arrive on the front page, that you have sponsored a month, and are worthy of their visit to your web site! No, we are not kidding. Front Page recognition. How cool is that!
NO WORRY, NO ANNOYANCES: Why? Because we're a spam-free web site, and this is not advertising -- it's recognition for your contribution and support for the design community. No math. No special registrations or account log-ins. No Ad blockers! None of those annoying nuisances associated with other forms of web advertising and spam sites. No complicated acronyms or manuals or policies to learn and remember. No need to worry about tracking unless you want to. Your Partner contribution of $250 is much appreciated, and will support the Design Center for a whole month -- no matter how many DTG readers see your name, your message or visit your web site, they know you're helping make the Design Center possible for THEM.

In the numbers: A recent survey by an independent advertising agency shows the Design Center pulls considerably more 'unique' visitors than comparable sites with 150,000 or more unique visitors per month. Likewise, we rank very close to the rest of the smaller "boutique" type sites with small traffic. Why? Because of our high-content to low-noise ratio -- and our 20 years of highly respected level of content.
