*Artistic Hub is a private label software development company. We launched in January 2008 as a crowd-sourced apparel brand called Collar Free. Here we learned how to effectively drive and manage social media for a consumer brand.

In December of 2008, Sports Illustrated Kids came to us and asked if we could build a private label version of our contest platform to help them improve engagement with online drawing contests. We said yes and began developing our first software product, marketed as Artistic Hub.

Within a year Artistic Hub software was powering online engagement in contests for dozens of household brands and organizations. Our clients appreciate how simple and fun our contests are to manage and participate in. In many cases our contests became the #1 viewed page on our client’s website, and for some clients the contests helped double site traffic in the first month.
