Over the past few months we’ve been working with a web programmer to create the WordPress based member pages we have been discussing for some time. Some of you may have noticed since the last ACIDO.info refresh that the member’s section had disappeared, this was in preparation to go live with the new one. The members area is now re-launched so all members in good standing can create and manage their own profiles as long as you are a member. YOU WILL NOT APPEAR ON THE MEMBERS LIST UNLESS YOU CREATE A PROFILE so everyone needs to make the time to show themselves off to the Industrial Design community and potential clients and/or employers.
This members area is phase one of an ongoing web update that will streamline all processes related to membership, payment, and collaboration.
Please click the following link and follow the steps. Once you receive your password you can fill in the rest of your profile. Your bio pic or avatar will be automatically re-sized as required but a landscape or square format is recommended to avoid any undesirable cropping. Images load a lot faster if saved as web format (72dpi) and remember, you will be able to edit and change your profile any time and there is no need to contact ACIDO to make any changes.
http://acido.info/wordpress/members/member-registration/ or click “register” under the membership menu. All current members will be activated within 48 hours. New applications will be contacted by membership.
