Foalio – connecting brands with artists

by Andy on September 21, 2011

foalio artist job postings

The idea of creating a job posting website that would allow artists and brands to connect with each other is something that I’ve long had in my “book of genius ideas Andy has but lacks the skills to implement”, so when I saw a newsletter from Threadbird introducing their new website, Foalio, which offers that very same service, I was a little saddened.

That sadness was short lived however, they’ve done better than I could have ever managed, and in doing so have created a fantastic resource that will hopefully make it easier for designers to get work with t-shirt brands, and help t-shirt brands connect with excellent artists from across the globe. Of course, websites like this need a lot of traffic to make them successful, but since it is a Threadbird project they have a built in source of brands wanting designs to be made, the people getting printing from Threadbird, so that should provide a steady flow of job postings, which should in turn entice designers.

I haven’t had time to get deep into the site, but it all looks promising from what I’ve seen, and I’m looking forward to seeing how it develops and grows in the future. Will any of you guys be signing up? Is this the website that the design community has been crying out for or is it just another place to put your portfolio?
