A short introductory video to show the reasons for the creation of Frame, in which is represented the structure and design of the social networks type marketplace and with the achievement of the number of active users expectations.
We are convinced that the only way to stand out from the ocean of images and videos available daily on the Internet is to offer quality material. Frame adds value to photographers’ skills and work, enabling them to earn more than competitors and creating a familiar community where dialogue and comparison are encouraged and it is even possible to take photography/videomaker courses. Frame wants to revolutionize how the market is approached by handing the power over to the real protagonist: the author. Frame is innovative because it allows brands and individuals to request photos and videos taken according to specific requirements and, at the same time, inspire users with extraordinary content. The process is designed so as to encourage the professional growth of amateur users and allow professional users to actively contribute to the community. In Frame the photographers can upload their works for resale with the necessary licenses to other interested users.
For several months we thoroughly studied the characteristics of the competition; we started discussions in various blogs of amateur and professional photographers to understand the sector’s issues. All this information has made us confident that we are able to create a «social network» for photographers with unique and functional characteristics. Our main challenge is to become a benchmark in the world of photography/video.The User Interface has got minimal graphics in order to enhance image quality, while the User Experience facilitates community involvement and interaction from the get-go. Frame’s technical infrastructure was designed to be flexible and adaptable. It can handle large amounts of data efficiently and without latency. Data access can evolve without requiring code refactoring, allowing for the opportunity to expand into new markets in the future. Frame’s flow and user experience are also the motivators of the creativity and quality of its visual products, and these are difficultly replicated by competitors without significant upheavals.
