Project Summary

Hi, we're Artmeet.

We usually find business professionals through LinkedIn. We probably find software engineers through GitHub. But, where do we find creative designers?

Jobstreet? Behance? Or even LinkedIn?

Nope. We got you the best solution — Artmeet

The Creative Designer Professional Network & Job Marketplace for designers and recruiters to experience the best of LinkedIn+Behance on one centralized platform.

Artmeet - The Creative Designer Professional Network & Job Marketplace

  • Recruiters can now connect, search and hire Creative Designers 10x faster, more efficient and at low cost.

  • Designers can build strong connection and portfolio, share, sell and grow their design skills easily.

 

Why We Created Artmeet?

It all starts when one of our co-founder Zoey was once struggling to hire graphic designers online to help her family's business. There is no existing low-cost, high efficient solution available in the market.

So, Zoey and friends have started a Facebook group to onboard designers and recruiters altogether to solve the problem. The demand is rising rapidly during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We have gathered voices from all the recruiters and we found the common pain points among them while recruiting designers via traditional job portals.

Common Recruiter Pain Points

  • You pay RM400+ per job ad but no suitable candidate apply for your job

  • You find out that creative designers seldom use traditional job portal to search for jobs

  • You find out that job portals only provide resumes, so there's limited information to judge a creative designer

There is no effective, trusted way for creative designers & recruiters to find and transact with each other.

❌Selecting creative designers from Facebook groups = FAILED

❌Selecting candidates from the resume database = FAILED

 

We think, it's time to change that.

 

The Game-Changing Solution

With Artmeet, you can connect, search and hire Creative Designers 10x faster, more efficient and at low cost.

Solution Highlights

  • You are able to post job ads for FREE — pay only for the result

  • You can browse Artmeet's designer news feed for FREE. The graphic designers are going to showcase their artworks and portfolios through Artmeet's social media.

  • You pay only a little monthly subscription fee to unlock full insights of your desired candidates

 

Key Highlights on Artmeet's Features:

  1. Profile as Resume

    Artmeet features a full-fledged designer profile that allows you to judge them by their historical employment data (Endorsement & Evaluation from client and/or employer).

  2. Social Network-Driven Community

    Artmeet is social network-driven which means you are able to connect and watch designers of interest, send them a job offer whenever they are available.

  3. Job Board for Creative Designers

    Artmeet provides you a job portal which is FREE to post jobs, equipped with a LinkedIn-like talent search solution.

  4. Marketplace to Outsource Creative Projects

    Artmeet provides you a creative marketplace to hire designers through design contests or freelance projects.

How Far We've Gone?

We have launched our job portal platform since March 2021 which already attracts around 1,000+ users seeking for jobs or hiring designers.

We grow this number without spending any marketing budget.

Our next phase is to develop and launch the social network features which allow designers and recruiters to connect to each other.
