How does the web app look and feel to use?

For creative professionals, TAXI is the network name for The Creative Finder. From the portfolio tab, users may upload images, add a description of the content, enter clientele, resume, awards, and choose keywords. All aspects are user-friendly.

Businesses seeking to hire creative professionals may browse by discipline, location, or keyword. Each search yields a page of thumbnail images representing each creative. Clicking the thumbnail leads to the portfolio of that person. Within the portfolio, if images or video are provided, selecting them will open a new window. This process was slightly slower than expected, and in some instances the window did not open at all.

How does the registration process work?

Businesses can sign up to find and contact creative professionals by providing a username, password, email address, contact person with number, position of the contact, company name and address, industry, and company size.

Creatives must provide a username, email, full name, discipline, and plan choices. Disciplines include various types of artists, writers, animators, advertisers, designers, and more.

What does it cost to use the application?

The application is free for businesses seeking to employ creative. Creatives who wish to be listed on The Creative Finder must pay $9.99 per month for a single discipline portfolio with unlimited image space, ready-made style sheets, and a normal listing – this is the UpSize plan. To expand to a Super-Size portfolio, $19.99/month allows up to 3 disciplines, unlimited space for images and video, ability to upload custom backgrounds, priority listing, and functionality for adding contacts and recommendations. Users may also add multi-language translation to Chinese or Japanese for an additional $14.99/month/language. Automated weekly update assistance is another $7.99 monthly charge.

A 21 day free trial is only available to annual subscribers.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Creative professionals looking for a place to upload a portfolio for review by businesses may want to consider The Creative Finder – as long as they are willing to pay the monthly fees. Businesses seeking creative talent will find many portfolios listed, but may have to do a lot of browsing to find what they are looking for.
