about us

Fan-powered brand energy

Our Rock Star Advantage

We're the perfect hybrid - bringing out the best of two very different creative models to radically alter the marketing services space: We combine the talent, value and efficiency of crowdsourcing with the quality, privacy, and creative direction you expect from a traditional agency.

By tapping into our community of over 200 creative professionals we can match brands to the best ideas, delivering cost-effective solutions for clients while providing core agency services like strategic guidance and the support you need from conception to final execution and analysis of a campaign.

The Crowd

Every member of our community is hand-picked for their experience, industry credentials and proven track record. You won't find students or beginners here trying to break into the business by working on your project. Our creative and digital professionals form the foundation of our agency and their amazing skillset allows us to consistently exceed client expectations.

Contest sites and speculative work pose risks for both brands and creative talent. We ensure that only the best ideas move into production and that all professionals involved get paid. It protects the brand identity of our clients and it's fair for the crowd.

Our Values

We're changing the way brands buy services with a creative social platform to ideate, produce, and deliver fresh authentic campaigns, enhance current initiatives, rethink or test strategies, launch or support a new product, or create original content for social media channels and other digital and mobile properties.

Creative Choice

Why go to one agency with a limited talent pool of internal creatives, when you could have a choice of the best and most experienced professionals from around the globe? We match the top pitches to your requirements.

Speed & Efficiency

We do the heavy lifting by identifying the perfect creative concept and then managing the selected creatives through production, to the highest standards and within your timeline.

Transparency

We maintain a constant flow of communication so you always know what's going on with your projects as well as to ensure you get exceptional creative that's in line with your marketing strategy.

Maximum Value

Clients demand the best creativity, want fast turnaround and don't want to waste budget on unnecessary overheads. Our technology platform streamlines the process so you pay for creative work, not the plush offices.

How it Works

From Audition to Stardom

Our Process

Working with us gives you access to hundreds of experienced professionals so there's no need to spend time sending out the same RFPs or briefs to lots of different providers. We do all that for you to the creatives we work with every day. Submitting a brief also grants you your own account on our platform where you can track progress of your projects, submit more briefs, and have team members submit their requirements to us in an online collaborative workspace. There's no need to leave the office - just sign in!

The choice of creative professionals and simplicity of an online process means all the overheads you've been used to disappear. There's no unwanted surprises: your agreed budget is what we work towards - and sometimes you may even end up spending less. Clients are always amazed at how quickly and easily everything happens - reviewing pitches, working with your selected creative professionals as well as our in-house team, and seeing everything delivered.

 

1. Client Brief Outline Requirements

We work with you to outline your creative needs, budgets and timelines and then assemble and fine-tune each element of your brief so that it serves as a blueprint for our creatives.

2. Creative Teams Curate Concepts

We vett and hand pick the creative teams that are best qualified to work on your project. They then submit pitches to our in-house creative team and after a preliminary evaluation, we present you with the top three teams.

3. Pitch Selection Refine Brief

After reviewing each of the three pitches you will provide feedback to the teams who will then further develop their ideas. Upon the final presentation, you select the pitch you would like to move forward to production.

4. Production Set Milestones

Your project will begin immediately and our in-house team will work with you every step of way to ensure that all stages go smoothly and milestones stay on track until the final deliverable.
