Goodbye Pundit, hello Grafiti! Today marks a huge evolution for our company. Ever since I Co-Founded Pundit, I’ve kept a close eye on one thing in particular: the creator economy.
The rapid shift to mobile has revolutionized the creator economy as we know it. But along the way, our feeds have become inundated with six packs and envy. Gone are the days of Tumblr, DeviantArt, and other genuine communities passionate about art and creativity. They’ve been lost in the desktop era.
#Grafiti is here to change this. Grafiti is the first ever art community made for mobile devices. This means one thing: a strong focus on stickers as a digital art form. Think of stickers as #emoji 2.0 — bite-sized pieces of art that people share with each other to express themselves in their daily communication.
Every time you discover and share an artist’s stickers, you’re spreading their art around while giving them recognition. This is our ethos — helping creators build audience, connect with a likeminded community passionate about art, and earn a living along the way.
We just began rolling out the beta to about 23,000 artists in several phases, and the reaction the past 48 hours alone has been absolutely visceral.
