The artists who sign up on the website will further have to specify their identity in terms of race/ethnicity and religion. This way the art directors will easily be able to find artists from different regions of the world and also the illustrators with less-visible statuses. The site will create a signpost, and after that, it’s up to the art directors to choose the work and the people.

It is a perfect online platform for those female artists who have faced any sort of uphill battle to get recognition for their creative work. Regardless of the professional needs, this artistic website will also intrigue art admirers who all day browse artworks online.

According to the website’s ‘about us’ page, the website’s founder is an anonymous group of female illustrators “in response to the disproportionately low number of women illustrators commissioned and hired by some prominent U.S. publications.” Moreover, the website also aims to collaborate with trans and gender-nonconforming artists.
