The Art of .ART — Noteworthy Adopters of 2021!

2021 was a particular year, to say the least, and we don't know yet what is in the bank for 2022. But as the glass is half empty or half full, there is still half the cake to eat, or we already ate a good chunk!

One sure thing is that as marvellous the challenges brought by 2021 were, there were also an impressive number of things to be grateful for! One thing that we feel blessed by at .ART is our adopters who recognize and want to harvest their creative potential and the practical choice that we are.

So as the year is in its last miles, we want to highlight some noteworthy adopters that joined our community in 2021!
