Amanda Singlerland, CEO and Co-Founder of StudioVox - the online platform that puts creative professionals, creative companies, creative agencies as well as fans all in one place, started her company when she realized there was no central platform to help creative people manage fans, collaborate on projects, and get noticed! "There’s a growing need for creative solutions to make businesses, products, services, and individuals stand out," says Amanda. "As a society we are becoming more visually dependent, more story dependent, and more digitally dependent. Messaging, whether it be through images, video, multimedia material or the written word, needs to be more creative and to cut through the clutter to reach its intended audience." Amanda believes free lance creative work is the wave of the future. "More and more we’re becoming a freelance economy," says Amanda. "People are working as consultants or on a project-by-project basis, people who can work from any location on earth from their laptop or mobile device, not to mention, working for clients any place on the planet at any given time. These trends are driving the creative job sector." Learn more about StudioVox.
