I, like many creatives, also depend on South By Southwest (SXSW) for projects each year and this year with the impact of COVID-19, I, too, lost all of my projects.
Four years ago, I struggled to get work as a freelancer and wondered why there wasn't a platform that showcased the talented creatives in my city. I bought hireacreative.co on GoDaddy (true story) but I didn't have the funds to hire a developer.
When SXSW got canceled this year and hundreds of creatives lost their gigs, I knew it was time so I reached out to my friends at GoDaddy and asked them for support. Within a week, we were able to build hireacreative.co!
