The idea for Artisfy came from working with freelance illustrators. The freelancers were so talented and the process was so much fun, but it was hard to find illustrators who were available — and sometimes the projects would get hard to manage just using email.
We designed this website with the goal of creating a marketplace, but we soon realized that artists had a lot of other issues beyond just finding good clients to work with: everything from negotiating contract terms and freelancing rates to getting clients to fill out creative briefs and give substantial feedback. As time went by, we realized our true passion is the artists.
In the near future, we're hoping to be the place where artists go to accept commissions. We plan to do this by providing an amazing creative contract, a fully-customizable commissioning process, as well as a nurturing creative community.
