Dottinghill, an inaugural project, is the pride and joy of Dots Connection. It is an online design community and e-store selling skin-accessories (for people, not gadgets) created by anyone who digs awesome designs and who is not afraid of being quirkily different. People who fit the bill join us as proud residents of Dottinghill to share their love for their design ideas, hang out with one another and shop for the most fly accessories to wear on their skins.
Skin-accessories are what we call your common temporary body tattoos (water-transfer). We reckon that these are so neglected as a fabulous medium for designers to express themselves and we want to push the boundaries of what traditionally define a temporary tattoo design. In starting Dottinghill, we have lofty dreams to popularize skin-accessories as fashionable and wearable little pieces of art that anyone can use as an everyday alternative form of accessory to complement their outfits, moods, events, partners or just because.
Our designs come from our frickin' amazing residents (we you guys!), be it our Creative residents who whip up original designs or our resident Spotters who help us scour the www to spot kick-ass artwork that they think will look good on our skin. So really, anyone can be our Creative or Spotter and yes, that includes you! The designs that are submitted then go through scoring by the rest in the Dottinghill community. The most popular designs become potential candidates to be printed as skin-accessories that will go on sale on our e-store for the community to get their hands on. So you see, Dottinghill is really all about our residents!
