Personal News: Introducing The CreativeGuild
I am ANXCITED over what I am about to share:
For nearly a decade CreativeMornings, an organization I started, has been bringing together people who are driven by passion and purpose, who support one another, and are collectively raising the bar on what it means to be creative.
Today, we’re launching the CreativeGuild where we will be translating our face-to-face community values to an online network for creatives. We like to think of it like LinkedIn, but for the creative world. .
This is something I wished existed 19 years ago, when I first moved to NYC and would Google ‘design studio NYC’ to find companies to apply to. All these years later, there is still no broad directory of creative companies, until now.
The CreativeGuild will start out as a global directory of creative companies and jobs but with an ambitious product roadmap ahead of us that will make it evolve into much more, a place for creatives to meet, that will open doors to new connections and opportunities. (The individual profiles will undergo a major upgrade next!)
Where other social networks are leaving me wanting more; more connection, more inspiration, more control over my data – we’re taking what we have learned with our face-to-face events and are aiming to create a more human experience.
What if, there was a place on the Internet that optimizes for opportunities instead of advertisements? An internet that is more interested in how you show up as a human, than how your data shows up in an algorithm? An internet that believed online experiences should feel more like face-to-face interactions?
I believe this version of the Internet can exist. Help me make it a reality.
