New Tutorial section on

Hi all,

We have just started a new Tutorials section at
There are currently two tutorials:

Some of your favorite designers from the Facer community will also be contributing tutorials to this section. If you’ve seen an effect on any watch face on Facer that you’d like to replicate, feel free to message them and suggest they contribute a tutorial!

How does one create a new tutorial?

@Mellin the recommended way is to write one using Medium (platform we use for our news), and sharing the link here. If we think it’ll be beneficial to the broader Facer community, we’ll contact you, suggest edits, and then add it to the publication where you’ll be credited as a writer.
