Daisie is about connecting creatives, like a cool version of LinkedIn that is non-gender specific.It helps new entrants into the industry gain exposure by connecting them with mentors who provide career guidance.There is a ‘Question Time’ feature so aspiring creatives can speak to leading experts and a ‘Shared Projects’ feature to help people collaborate across different industries.

What is slightly radical about the app is there are no follower counts. Williams said“If you have follower counts it then becomes about a competition, like a popularity contest who can get the most.”…”I couldn’t be happier about the change we are currently seeing in creative industries and the movement towards women becoming truly valued,” Williams noted in a statement regarding the app… “I want Daisie to give other creatives the opportunities that I was lucky enough to receive at the beginning of my career. Daisie will break down the archaic gap between youth and creative jobs; offering new opportunities for individuals to collaborate, learn and create – establishing a new way for talented individuals to be discovered and employed.”
Co-founded by movie producer Dom Santry, Santry told the press… “the app is a place for discovery and collaboration, as an alternative to the likes of Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Social media can be a very lonely place, and somewhere that doesn’t necessarily inspire collaboration or foster meaningful connections,” … “It’s very easy for creative voices to get lost in platforms riddled with ads and unimportant content; we’re hoping to eradicate these, providing a focused, industry specific platform.”
One user commented “I am addicted to this new app. I love how the main feed has tons of talents posting daily without the bother of ads. It is a refreshing platform for creative people to connect with and inspire each other. I have made a few connections and started new projects already that were inspired by the writings of fellow Daisie app users (I am a painter mostly). It is nice to be able to comment and ask questions on others projects in order to get advice on my own projects and how to execute them. I highly recommend downloading and using once it is available to you. I look forward to seeing what is added on every single day. So grateful to get to try it out.”
The app includes a “Plus” program which users pay for that allows access to additional features and settings, the platform has also brought together The Daisie 100, a group of creators who “embody what Daisie stands for, and who are striving to be the best in their respective industries.” The list includes illustrators, filmmakers, actors and photographers, all of whom Daisie has handpicked as ones to watch for the future.The app is free to download on the apple store and available for your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
