Since the introduction of the fluxiom free plan, we have had the pleasure of welcoming many students to our creative community. Making big dreams possible on a tight budget, and giving tools today to the talents of tomorrow, such is our goal.
To those of you sitting on the fence, allow us to introduce Bastian Allgeier, who started investigating fluxiom on the day we launched, all the way back in 2006, and jumped on board the day free plans were introduced.
Bastian is a student of web and graphic design in Mannheim, Germany. Today, he uses fluxiom to organise and back-up data on our advanced storage platform.
“One of the hardest things when you are not employed by a single company with a united work-flow, is to get organized. When it comes to files, at least, fluxiom has me covered.”
Synchronising files between home computers and university workstations can quickly become a hassle. That’s why he uploads all his course work and source material on fluxiom which constitutes “a great platform to exchange files with fellow students — just like an virtual USB drive on steroids!”
As he gets into design business on his own, he’s also test-driving fluxiom stages as a way to distribute files and invite comments on long-term projects that come with uncertain deadlines and looser feedback loops.
Like most dedicated graphic designers, Bastian likes his tools to look good and feel good: fluxiom’s breakthrough use of AJAX and desktop-quality interface seemed like a natural fit. He says fluxiom “highly inspired [him] to concentrate more on the development of web applications during [his] studies.” In fact, Bastian has already launched his first web application: colour us honoured!
If you’re a student or a newcomer to the world of design, a “fluxiom free plan”https://secure.fluxiom.com/signup/free may be just what you need to get started. If you’re a professor, give us a ping, and we will gladly walk you through the process of setting up your class on fluxiom for free.
Finally, whoever you are, we encourage you to look at Bastian’s portfolio. It’s sure to entertain and inspire!
