Forum Description: Graphic Balloon is a community designed to provide a meeting point for the creative minds. The concept of the forum is to help and get help in graphic related questions.
Our forum is divided into 3 major parts, Community, Graphics and Premium.
Under this category you can find all the forum related
announcements, news, events, contests and discussions
ranging from graphic design related discussions to general discussions.
This category gives a place to our Graphic Design School, which contains several
howtos, tutorials, tips, tricks, walkthroughs, timelapses, resources
submitted by our members.
What's more we have a Questions Area, where you can ask
all the questions you bumped into during a design process.
You can also find a Museum Boulevard here including the creations
of our members, a Fan Sector showing off the artists worthy to follow
and a Creative Arena where you can battle with your fellow mates!
Last but not least, this category is the ground of Graphic Requests where you can request art for free.
Apart from free requests you can find Workshops too, where our members
are having their own shops and sell their talent.
We also have an Advertisement section,
where you can show off your site to the community!
