Art and Design is our passion.

Area of design is a completely volunteer-based resource to help promote creative talent and give each artist an outlet to shine. We feature talent directly on our home page and dedicated artist page. No advertising or gimmicks are used on the AOD site, so funding through Patreon is our only means for supporting our cause.

Help support our efforts by making a pledge on Patreon.
