The Best Tool In Your Kit
By Miranda Gonzales
A beautifully artistic home helped host an event for Austin’s SXSW artists, to kick back and get away from the crazy times they’re bound to have at the renowned festival. Though it was hard to not get stuck staring at the view, once inside, a sign taped to a dining table asked guests to participate in a beta testing. ArtCube cleverly used this event to help get feedback on their website.
For 10 years the online forum, ArtCube, has been dedicated to making life a lot of bit easier for every profession. This freelancing company gives freelancers the ability to exchange “props,” job information, and things that would otherwise be hard to find. It’s essentially a site dedicated to community and eliminating waste.
Owners, Eva and Liz, share a passion for recycling items to a new loving home and with the number of site users, they’re not the only ones. With over 6,000 professionals in 26 cities around the Unites States, the forum has made a definite name for itself within the art industry. With it’s success, it’s expected to do much more within the upcoming years.
Through this site and event, ArtCube helped bring awareness to the simple fact most people don’t realize the crazy amount of great things that are being thrown out. For the mere reason of people being “done” with it. ArtCube provides that place for professionals to help one another eliminate those instances and be a perfect tool for all!
