About Rampant Design Tools

“We’re pretty certain that you’ll like what you find with Rampant Media Design Tools. We’re also certain that you’re not panning for gold in a river bed. If you were, how would you have time to make stuff? Trust us, we’ve tried the “panning for gold” route and we found nothing. Zilch. It may have been the result of panning our back alley’s gutter with a used bucket of fried chicken, but nonetheless, we ended up with no gold. What we have done, is work collectively for over 30 years as artists, just like you. And when we’re at work, we whistle, we’re just as every bit as happy as those slappy little dwarfs going to the mines everyday. Rampant Media Design Tools is a result of our digging and scraping, finding what we need to get the job done. We found that work is a lot more fun when you’re sharing it with someone else and easier when the tools you need are right on hand. So give some of our stuff a try, and while you’re at it, whistle.”

How do you enter the give-away?

Easy, just answer these two questions in a comment below:

1. Do you currently use any software to track time and invoice clients?
2. What kind of designer are you primarily? (E.g. Graphic designer, Web designer, Motion designer, Illustrator etc.)

Make sure that you enter your email correctly, otherwise we wont be able get get in touch with you if you win!
