Angelineasaurus invades crowdSPRING

Ross | July 14th, 2008

A short time ago, we began a search for a Community Manager to help us develop an army of stark raving fans of our site (more of them). We wanted someone who lives and breathes Facebook, who can’t get enough of MySpace, and who loves to blog and comment on other people’s blogs and talk […]

Bad behavior

Mike | June 20th, 2008

We think there are many benefits to contributing your work to projects on crowdSPRING. Not only are there cash awards to be won, community to be built and enjoyed, and clients to be found, but there is learning to be had. We understand that designers learn a great deal from watching what their peers are […]

A good Guy

Pete | June 12th, 2008

While we can’t say that we know him personally, we do know this – Guy Kawasaki is a good guy and a friend of crowdSPRING. Or maybe a friend of a friend of crowdSPRING. Either way, Guy stuck up for us the other day and so we owe him one. So, help us return the […]

Mercury Grand Marquis – We’ve arrived

Ross | June 5th, 2008

Nothing better expresses a hip start-up than pulling up to a conference in Silicon Valley for the 32 “most disruptive startups”, in a powder-blue Mercury Grand Marquis. That’s Mike in the photo (I was laughing behind the camera).  What a ride!

Ask crowdSPRING: How many countries does cS reach?

Ross | May 26th, 2008

We’ve long admired 37signals, a great Chicago company located only a few blocks from us. We love their products (Mike and I have used Backpack since 2006, when we first came up with the idea for crowdSPRING, and our development team uses Basecamp to manage multiple projects and for collaboration). We also love their Signal […]

Value and values

Mike | May 20th, 2008

crowdSPRING values creativity. crowdSPRING values creative people. We put a great deal of thought into ways we could walk this walk in our business model. We developed for tools and features to protect creatives that other sites do not offer. We insist that buyers deposit with us the full amount of the award and we […]

Shout To Other Blogs…

Ross | May 14th, 2008

We launched crowdSPRING (after a 9 week closed beta) just a few days ago, and already, a couple of blogs have taken the time to put together short reviews. youthedesigner wrote a nice summary earlier today. 5thumbs published a review yesterday that nicely captures who we are. We wanted to send a huge thanks to […]

Elusivity

Mike | May 5th, 2008

Launch is elusive. Launch is a moving target. Launch is a slippery fish that you can’t seem to get hold of. We invited our last large group of users into Beta at the end of last week and so far so good. Not too many reports of bugs and not too many complaints about missing […]

Milestones

Mike | April 24th, 2008

We pushed a big ‘ol batch of code to the site last night and are totally excited about the raft of new features and enhancements (not to mention the fact that users can now create projects!). We are aware that some of our bugs are showing and will be working hard to get those fixed […]

Two-Point-O rising

Mike | April 7th, 2008

We have been working very hard on version 2.0 of our Beta. The “new and improved” crowdSPRING, while still under wraps, will accomplish several important things for us: 1. It will incorporate a full visual redesign, driven by the new homepage design we chose at the end of our public competition, 2. It will greatly […]
