A digital service to discover new creative freelance talent

Spotted is a mobile app that helps freelancers be more easily discovered by clients who are seeking creative talent, a useful advance given that many more people are considering freelance work since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Freelancers face many unique challenges, some of the most difficult being finding new work, pitching to clients, and maintaining client relationships over time. With the aid of Spotted they will be able to spend more time working on their craft as the app’s image recognition software will highlight them to potential clients.

    I am an interaction designer who creates services and products for people, with people. I have an innate curiosity about the human condition, which leads me to seek the most pragmatic and empathic solution to every problem. After completing my studies at the School of Visual Arts, I am working at a creative consultancy based in Shanghai, helping clients meet the challenges of the next decade. I keep enhancing my design skills, to finding more efficient ways of using design and technology to solve social problems and to make the world a more harmonious place. more
