PSDFan Extra

A Look at our Upcoming Forum

Hey creatives! You may have noticed that we’ve been a little quiet here the past couple of weeks.

To be honest, I’ve been working incredibly hard to setup a huge new part of the site for you guys.

Take a look at the video below to learn more (and see a very unprofessional blooper on my part):

It’s been incredible helping so many of our members to improve and seeing their reaction when they realize what they’re capable of producing! Here’s what one member, Jess Brown emailed me saying:

As a beginner graphic designer, I have been struggling with creating graphics the best they can be. I really didn’t have anyone to critique my graphics and give me the help I needed. Then I joined FanExtra and started working with Tom. He’s been so great in helping me improve the quality of a graphic I have been struggling with for a client. He’s reviewed several drafts, provided honest, helpful feedback, and even checks in with me to see how I’m doing. Tom goes above and beyond and when he says he’ll help you, he REALLY will! I strongly recommend FanExtra and working with Tom. You will benefit and improve your skills no matter what level you’re at.

The new forum is coming very soon, so look out for it!

    Love it, from tip to tail. Thanks for not going back over to make it ‘un-fumbly’ at the end, either. I’m excited about where this is going……!! Seriously, great work and looking forward to gnoshing on ideas in a forum space with other creatives :)

  2. Rosa Perry says:

    Looking forward to this new community. Thanks for all your hard work and effort Tom.

    • Tom Ross says:

      Thanks so much Rosa :) . It’s been something I’ve thought about for a long time, but the timing definitely feels right, as so many of our members are getting one on one help, it just made sense to have all this in a central place.

      I really hope you’ll get great value from it!

    It’s amazing the amount of effort you are putting to better the design community and the world at large.
    I am looking forward to the new community.
    More grease.

    • Tom Ross says:

      Thanks Ayo, that’s so great to hear :) . I’m all in on this, and will be working hard to make our community better designers. I feel like everyone (me included) will learn a lot through the new community.

    • Tom Ross says:

      Thanks so much Andy! I literally just opened it up to early adopters to test the system. I’m really excited to bring our awesome community together in one place though.

      I hope business is good for you guys.

    Hey Tom,

    I just wanted to take the time to thank you for all of your hard work in creating the forum. I am shocked by all the help I’m able to get there and so quickly!

    You and the rest of the community have been great!

    Thanks again!
    Jess

    • Tom Ross says:

      Thanks so much jess, that means a lot :) . I’m so glad that you’re getting good value from the forum, and it’s been my pleasure helping you. I hope that you’ll continue to post your work for feedback, as I see a lot of potential in what you’re creating.

    Great video Tom! The forums have been great so far and I hope that it continues to grow and help all of the members of the community. I love the end of the video personally – it was a very humanizing moment and you are still the man!

    • Tom Ross says:

      Cheers mate! It’s been so much fun in the community already, and it’s awesome to see everyone bonding and benefiting from the critiques. You’ve been a huge asset, so thanks for the ongoing efforts.

      I’ve learnt to keep bloopers in these days ;)

  7. Robby Klein says:

    Sounds cool Tom! I love design forums with a good sense of community, which it sounds like you’re creating. It feels like there’s not as many compared to 5 years ago. Looking forward to it! Will it be available to everyone or it is strictly for your FanExtra members?
