Iím very excited to announce that Steve Szoczei has joined the Painter Team full-time! As one of Corelís top Senior User Experience Designers, Steve has always been in very high demand at Corel and we are very fortunate to finally have his full attention. He is a graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design Ė one of North Americaís top art & design colleges Ė and he has a background in industrial design which is ideally suited to designing the user experience for the next versions of Painter.
Some of you may have met Steve (or ďsp!keĒ as we lovingly refer to him as here) at Photoshop World, Macworld or the Prague or San Francisco Massive Black/ConceptArt.org Workshops. He has also traveled globally to meet with Painter artists in their studios both at work and in their homes. Steve will now be leading all research and design for Painter so please feel free to drop him a line with your Corel Painter X wishlist items! Steve can be contacted directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
We also encourage you to continue sending messages to the entire Painter Team at email@example.com . When you send a message to this email address, every single member of the Painter Team gets a chance to read it. We feel this is extremely important and can have a tremendous amount of positive impact on our products. We absolutely need to hear from you first hand whether itís to provide a critique, wishlist item, or just to say hello and share your latest painting. You are the driving force behind Painter and we want to hear from you!
Thatís all I have for now! Have a great day!
