BOULDER, Colo., May 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Ello, The Creators Network has taken another step in its mission to put creators first through its acquisition of Nabaroo, a network for artists and illustrators.
As Nabaroo founder and CEO, Rory Trankler, wrote to his members last week: "I've been very impressed with Ello's passionate, talented team and the support they show the global artist community. Ello's focus is clearly on supporting artists, amplifying their work, and putting money in their pockets."
"Several artist community-based brands have recently reached out to Ello," says Todd Berger, Ello CEO. "They understand our value, believe in the Ello mission and want to be part of our team as we lean into connecting artists with brands and fans. We have another acquisition in the works to extend our reach and influence as we become the home for artists and creative tastemakers."
Over the past year Ello has built a number of new creator focused product features - adding Artist Invites, E-commerce, Hire & Collaborate functions and greatly improved Member Profiles & Portfolios. We're continuing to work with leading-edge brands, agencies and art publications produce original artist collaborations. We're the future of how artists, brands and fans collaborate and engage with one another.
