What is Expressboard?
Expressboard is an online showcase platform for makers, artists, designers, photographers and other creative entrepreneurs to showcase, offer and purchase creative work, DIY and handmade goods. Showcase what you create and gather valuable feedback from potential customers; at the same time be able to connect with like-minded individuals an collaborate on something interesting and meaningful around the globe.
How did the idea come about?
We love to express ourselves (who we are) through things we love (our passions) and share them with others. We also love to work with people who share the same vision - so we figured why not combine the two? As a result, Expressboard was born with the vision of creating a global community where people can showcase things they love and create while being able to connect with others to collaborate on fun and interesting projects.
