Design Samples

Well, I just got the bad news that Zoto will be closing its doors in about a month. It's a real shame but the money just isn't there to support a full time staff. We were really close to exiting a few months ago but the stars did not align properly (stupid stars). So now it's time to hang up our hats. It's been a great experience and I've learned so much during my 2+ years working at Zoto as their designer. It's a little heartbreaking but hopefully another door will open now that this one is closing. And if, behind that open door, is a room full of money OR a nice new job then I will be a happy camper. I need need a new gig ASAP. I guess it's a good thing I've been working on my new site which I will try to have up and running this weekend at www.colorspretty.com.

Hi Kara,
you may have seen that Zoto users have found this post and are wondering what's going on. Any response from anyone would be welcome.

Just to clarify a few things, zoto.com will be around for a LONG time. It's active development that is being suspended for now. I will be staying on for case by case bug fixes, so nobody hosting their photos on Zoto should freak out. Your pictures are safe, and will be for many moons.

And if I want to hire you, where do I contact you? :)

What about the people who cannot even upload photos? And the people asking for feedback on the support forums? Any words of assurance for them? I would rather not come over here to ask, but since there's no activity on the company site, this is the next best thing.

Nunovo,

I'm really sorry that you are having issues on the site. Josh is the guy you need to contact. I'd try josh@zoto.com

Kara, thank you for replying. But...
it seems very odd that none of the Zoto staff have made any replies on the Zoto forum. It's embarrassing enough to have to pester anyone, let alone having to chase people round the internet to get answers.

Are you able to shed any light on why there've been no replies to requests, emails, or phone calls?
