I’m happy to introduce my newest personal project, Folyo
Folyo is a newsletter of curated job offers, sent to great designers all over the world. It costs $100 to submit a job offer, and if it’s accepted it will then be posted to the site and sent to designers in the next newsletter.
Folyo was born out of two realizations: first, as a successful freelance designer, I didn’t know where to refer clients when I couldn’t accept their project. Second, I realized many companies had a hard time finding good designers. The old “ask around” method shows its limits when your ideal designer might very well be living halfway around the world.
So I decided to do something about these two related problems: I created a simple newsletter of job offers that I’d send to other reliable and experienced freelance designers.
After a couple months of maintaining this service, and getting great feedback from both designers and companies, I decided the concept was worth exploring further, and so I built Folyo.
Unlike a stand-alone newsletter, Folyo also gives clients a central place where they can manage designer’s replies. What’s more, having stats on who has replied means that I can also guarantee a minimum number of replies.
So go check it out and let me know what you think
