About Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to give freelance Makers the exposure and opportunity to earn a living with their art by providing an online platform that makes it easy for people to find and commission them for exactly what they need created.


Find a Maker – As a user looking for custom art or design, find Makers whose skills fit your needs! Search by medium, location, and/or keywords.

Find a Request – As a Maker, find gigs or long-term jobs that you can take on! Search by compensation range, your medium, location, and/or keywords.

Post a Maker Profile – Post your head-shot, bio, and examples of your work, so that people can commission you directly!

Post a Request – Post your Request with a description of what you need created, compensation range, medium, and location, so that Makers can come to you, eager to take on your project!


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 a Request, 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 Requests. And unlike other sites that help artists sell their work, Makeplease is completely dedicated to custom work; items are not sold, but rather Makers are commissioned for brand new projects. 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. 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.
