The Origin of Rtist
Rtist was founded in 2018 by siblings, Tony and Chloe. Both of them came from a design background; Tony was an industrial designer, while Chloe was a graphic designer.
Tony felt the urge to create a platform where businesses could connect to the right local creative talents and shorten the hiring process.
He understood that a wrong hire was ultimately costly and time consuming. With this idea in mind, they formed Rtist, pivoting the business from an agency to a Creative Platform.
Rtist is able to create more job opportunities for local creative talents to be seen and be connected to potential clients.
