A glimpse into our shared future
Makeshop is a glimpse into the future of our creative economy, where vetted creative talent can help individuals in person and on demand in the setting of a coffee shop or co-working space.
Patrons in need of design, copy or product/strategy help can book 30, 60 or 120 minute one-on-one sessions with a vetted expert — in just a few clicks.
