Comments on marketplace launch

“The app is used by Olympians James Magnussen and Emily Seebohm, influencers like SketchShe & Ellie Gonsalves, Jo Casamento, Lisa Messenger and ‘Commando’ Steve.”

Taryn said “Times have changed, most creative talent is now mobile first, and many people now work remotely, I knew it was time to switch to an app.”

“I considered launching an app but it was important to me to ensure I had the right team working on it. Apps used to be very complex and expensive to build but thanks to the advancements in technology we were able to create the app in just 4 months.”
