Sponsor // Jotform

jot form

Jotform is an online service that allows you to easily create and host forms for a variety of applications. Working with Jotform’s form builder you can conceive and construct forms for registration purposes, applications, surveys and more. However, until recently you were limited in design options. All that has changed with Jotform’s latest update, which allows you complete control over  the look and feel of your forms. Easily manipulate the colors, fonts and layout without knowing a single line of code.

To complement the release of the enhanced form builder Jotform has also launched a new theme marketplace. This should be of special interest to designers looking to showcase and sell their work. From now until June 15th, 2015  Jotform is waiving their fees so designers will earn one hundred percent of their theme sales. After the 15th, Jotform will retain 30%. To submit a theme, click the “new theme” button in the upper right corner of the My Themes page.

Want to turn your passion into your new career? You can at Shillington School

Shillington School

Shillington prides itself on providing its students with an up-to-date and relevant education with a focus on practical skills that are essential in the workplace. Established in 1997, the school offers a three-month immersive and hands-on course in graphic design catered to students with little to no experience in the field. In addition, they offer a week-long intensive program in web development targeted at existing designers looking to develop coding experience. Both courses are overseen by instructors currently working in the field. In today’s interview, we chat with Holly Karlsson, Shillington’s NY campus director. She fills us in on the school’s history and how it rises to the challenges its students face.
