An Innovative SaaS Web Application for Photographers and Creative Designers
The project was initiated by a photographer and a seasoned product consultant with extensive experience working alongside celebrities and creatives globally. Their vision was to create an innovative platform tailored for photographers and creative designers seeking recognition, feedback, and monetization opportunities for their work.
Creative Arts and Photography Technology
Our client envisioned transforming their existing minimalist website into a comprehensive SaaS-based web platform. Inspired by the success of platforms like Dribbble, they aspired to create a competitive arena where photographers worldwide could submit their work for appraisal. The submitted photographs would undergo a rigorous review process by a panel of judges integrated into the system who would provide valuable feedback. Additionally, photographers would have the opportunity to monetize their artwork by offering it for sale to other creatives who could download it through the application.
Photographers on the platform would benefit from a comprehensive dashboard providing insights into influencers and monetization status. This application also doubled as a social media platform for photographers and creatives, offering a suite of social networking features. The application was designed to cater to both freemium and premium users, each with its own set of features.
- Tight Timelines: Adherence to a strict timeline was crucial.

- Customizing Nova: Efficiently customizing Nova for streamlined admin management posed a challenge.
Cubet proposed the development of a mobile-responsive, adaptive web application with modules deployed iteratively to meet tight deadlines.

The frontend of the application was developed using Angular, while the backend was powered by Laravel and Nova.
