Where everybody has a voice
For hundreds of years British creativity has been leading the way, through our invention, innovation, design, artistry and hard work. There are lots of channels and networks for spreading the word about what we do as creatives – our websites, our social media, regional directories, etc.
Until now, there has been nowhere that brings them all together into an easy to navigate, highly relevant space. There are many tools that we use to create our work, we wanted to create a great tool that helps us to promote our work.
"There are lots of people working really hard to promote their discipline - Governing Bodies, Industry Professionals, Educators - but most creatives are multi-disciplinary, and no one was joining it all together. We want to offer something that works at every level, from grassroots and those starting out to industry professionals and national treasures." - Jeremy Aird, Founder
"Recognising that the Creative industry is a mass of niches, where people strive to be different, take risks and don’t want to fit in - we wanted to build somewhere where creatives can be themselves, they are easy to find and we help celebrate their differences" - Richard Woods, Founder
