We often get asked how ConceptShare got started. Did we have a team of MBAs that produced fancy spreadsheets and reports detailing a big market opportunity for creative review and approval? No. The answer is pretty simple. Our founders were immersed in the creative process themselves (working on software designs). Suddenly, a light bulb (or two) came on and the idea of ConceptShare was born; that idea being how do we make it easier for a creative team to share, communicate, and collaborate on creative work.
While we love our own tool, there are also other tools and sources of information that help creative teams work smarter. We’ll be highlighting some of them in an on-going series of posts.
First up is Creative Public.
Founder and creator Jason Vaughn has over 20 years of experience in the graphic design industry. He has gathered a number of resources and useful tools for designers and made them available on Creative Public.
If you’re looking into starting your own successful business, Creative Public is definitely a website you need to check out. Jason highlights what to do and what not to do in the graphic design business, provides resources for freelancers and entrepreneurs, and the products you need to help your business grow.
In the past, Creative Public has featured ConceptShare as a useful tool for designers for creative review and approvals. Recently, Creative Public posted Creative Review IQ: Are You Part of the Mensa Set?, an article touching on the Creative Review IQ whitepaper that ConceptShare recently published. Here’s an excerpt of what they had to say:
“As agencies of all sizes increasingly focus on how they operate the creative review process is certainly an area that deserves attention. Making it easy to share project work and capture feedback is something that is critical to making sure that projects get shipped on time and on spec.”
