BOULDER, Colo., Nov. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- At Ello we're giving thanks to the artists, dreamers, makers, poets, builders and everyone dedicated to moving the world forward in a better direction through her or his or their creative practice! While the Ello "Facebook Killer" meme was fun for a second, it was as relevant as Outbrain clickbait and Kardashian flatulence.
In the face of the normalization of misogyny, homophobia, racism and the truthiness of outright lies, Ello is the alternative - no human data farming, no ads, no BS. Ello is a community of creators and creative influencers. Thou art. Thou is. Art is truth. And our social and our media our world needs Ello now more than ever.
On the path to becoming the Vice of creativity, Ello is proud and excited to announce Not For Print. The first issue will address "censorship," and we want to see who's pushing the limits, challenging the mainstream, making work that says something important, and moving the world forward in a better direction.
Not For Print will help bring the best of Ello into the real world with a tangible, show-it-off-on-your-coffee-table magazine featuring the art of 50 creators on Ello. And we want to see your work in it! Not For Print is another way Ello is committing to provide visibility and opportunity for our incredibly talented community.
