They describe themselves as: “a platform for the world’s artists and creatives to promote their work and connect with unique opportunities.”
The first half of that description is fair enough. Artsists can upload their work into a personal gallery, promote the work of others and sell high-quality prints via the site.
But it’s the second part of the statement that makes Society6 stand out.
Connecting with unique opportunities means they actively seek out collaborations with brands like Good Magazine, MTV, Urban Outfitters, VANS and video game maker EA (as well as smaller businesses and projects).
Actively engagement between artists and brands makes a ton of sense for everyone involved: brands get to stay fresh and unique, artists get their work seen and make money.
I wonder if they’d be interested in collaborating on some cover art for our upcoming Iddictive Guides series?
