Dear all creators.

First of all, thank you very much for your suggestions so far :) However, there is one common guideline we would like to share with you:

As there are very many designs with pictures of employees in suits collaborating, we are looking for more originality in the picture choices.

Please dear to be bold in your suggestions, and the pictures don't necessary need to be business related.


Thanks a lot

Looking forward for new suggestions

Best regards
