Sydney Art Director Al Spiers & Designer Thom Davy Launch Stashboard
Sydney-based art director Al Spiers and designer Thom Davy have launched a productivity tool with a near-impossible objective: making storage and organisation cool.
Stashboard aims to revolutionise the category, providing a single location for every creative person to store, sort, share and reference their creative assets, collaborate on projects and generally help in organising their creative lives. It's unique in that it has been "built by creatives for creatives."
Says Spiers: “Between us we’ve worked in the industry for over 35 years of which we’ve spent a large chunk lost in the chaos of creativity. We’ve spent too much time trying to relocate files and inspiration – generally being disorganised."
"We felt that if we had all our creative stuff in one place we could spend less time chasing our tails and more time doing what we do best – being creative. That’s why we developed Stashboard,” he said.
Adds Davy: “We’ve spent almost two years crafting the system in order for it to make perfect sense to people like us. We wanted to build the ultimate left-brain stash for all that right-brain stuff, and in the process help produce better creative minds."
With its clean, colourful design and intuitive user interface, Stashboard is unlike any other cloud storage on the market. With a mobile and tablet version on the way, the desktop site caters to designers, art directors, artists, photographers, illustrators, fashion designers and students.
Backed by Amazon Web Services, and its data protection, everything stored on Stashboard is as safe as it can be.
Located at stashboard.com, the service has launched four ultra competitive price plans, starting with a free 2GB of data storage.
Says Davy: “We want to get the whole creative community onboard – we reckon everybody’s right brain could use a little left brain love.”
