Deshistar, a platform which lets creative professionals to find their next creative gig is launching their operation on June 27th, 2016. Understanding how overwhelmingly painful it is for creative freelancers to find their next work, Deshistar helps them finding new opportunities to showcase their portfolios and get hired.
Is it a problem? Do we really need a talent showcasing platform that increases exposure to talents and work as an additional marketing channel for them? Up until now, to get a creative gig one must network and have social media presence. Or so it was until 2016. Later others came forward with similar concepts of a creative marketplace which claimed to get you a gig while they do the negotiation, transaction and marketing. However, they do not let an artist to showcase their own work. So, to get hired in their platform you must stay ahead in the rolling basis. That’s a clear under appreciation of your craft if you are truly devoted to what you do. We, on the other hand, let an artist’s work to be their voice; we showcase an artist, their portfolio and most importantly we highlight their view on their craft. We do PR, social media marketing, networking and above all, we take pride in the people we represent. And as others, we handle the negotiations, transactions and all the necessary marketing.
