Take up your slings Web and Graphics Designers, Creative Directors
I admit it, taking on the likes of Elance, 99 Designs, and other Goliath middlemen is no easy slaying. I don't know about you but I am sick of them exploiting creatives financially. I am a long time creative director. I decided to quit bitching about it, and I did something about it.
I got together a group of creatives to volunteer their time and talent to creative an interface (fancy talk for website) whose only goal is to champion creatives and create the most fluid, fastest, provocative way for companies of all sizes to view the best portfolio around, and then contact the artist instantly. All in a site that is free to all. You'd think once the site was created the hard part would be over. I wish. My work is just beginning, and it starts with you.
CALLING ALL DAVIDS
To slay a Goliath like elance or 99 designs you need more than a cool, fast, website. You need David. The mighty creative (print and web designers, illustrators, branding specialist). The best of the best. The portfolio that makes hiring managers and the like salivate at embarrassing levels. That's what will drive top corporations away from elance and the other big boy middlemen. It will take more than one perfectly placed flint to fell these foes though, these behemoths make the biblical one look like a toddler. So I need a group of heroic right brain thinkers to knock them to their knees
YOU CAN'T ALL BE DAVID
One big problem I am finding every creative thinks they are David when the reality is they are anything but. Most creative's best would get crushed by the giant's foot before they even take up a sling. A lucky few would hurl logos and websites harmlessly at the titan's ankles. I need not just bravery, and blind confidence, but sheer god given talent. Demigods of branding and design who can clock the beast Elance dead in the forehead with their skill and thinking. Are you that biblical hero?
10 OUT OF 1000
So far I have had close to 1000 people send me their portfolio and only about 10 qualify as giant slayers. I know there are more out there. So please send me your work. Just a link or pdf your work is all I need. No long diatribe of why you are good. Your works says it all.
Without you this site will be nothing more than a squashed dream on the sole of Goliath's sandal. Take up your slings my creative warriors.
