    We are always hiring for GDT, but I wanted to give an update ^^

    I know not everyone has access to Photoshop/Illustrator, but we are making templates on Canva, so that if you want to make something, but don't have the software, all you need is a browser :D

    If you have any questions at all please feel free to reach out to me via PM, discord or e-mail! :D
