I am stoked to support and introduce you to (trumpet sounds) Creative Connect, a brand new online platform for NZ creatives to showcase their work.
Whether you're a mograph designer from AK, a hand-drawn type illustrator from Welly or a fashion designer from my neighbourhood, Creative Connect offers you a F R E E slicker-than-your-average portfolio platform; a place for prospective clients to search within your discipline, see your best work (and read more about you)... so they can hire you!
Behind Creative Connect are Tan Desai (Design Director at one of Australasia's largest design studios) and Ovi Alexeenco (Senior Developer for a leading NZ app agency). They're driven to bridge the gap between students and the industry, and between freelance talent and opportunity.
Alongside the portfolios (to which you can add nice big 920-pixel images and embedded video), there's more to come - including a messaging system so NZ creatives can contact each other, and regular content (industry insights, interviews, business advice) to make sure Creative Connect becomes a true resource and a hub for NZ creatives.
We'll be posting updates on Creative Connect as more and more NZ creatives join and the community grows...
