       Makeplease is your place to commission makers for custom art and design. You may have a great mural planned for your space, but need a painter, or maybe you want to get custom-made bar stools for your restaurant, but need a furniture designer. Whatever your idea may be, not only can you post a listing of an open commission or job, but you can also browse through Maker Profiles of artists and designers from all over the world, specializing in all types of mediums, just waiting for you to commission them.

On Makeplease, users can browse through Maker Profiles, filter by Medium and Location, and choose a maker that fits their aesthetic. And on the flip side, makers can also browse through Open Commissions. And unlike other sites that help artists sell their work, everything is totally free, there are no complicated, daunting bidding wars, there is a category for every type of art and design, there are Maker Profiles that let you find potential collaborators in addition to gigs, and it’s clearly made from scratch by a fellow artist who understands the needs and wants of other makers. One major distinguishing factor is that no transactions are made on the site; Makeplease is meant for making connections. It’s as simple as finding the perfect maker, finding the perfect opportunity, and kicking off a great project and a valuable, potentially life-long connection.
