About The Boston Egotist
The Boston Egotist is an anonymously-run website featuring the best creative, the best talent and the best resources in Boston.
We are focused on sharing the ideas, work and resources of our local creative community and beyond. It is one of a growing network of localized Egotist websites across North America.
This is a posting board. A town hall. A creative hub. Step inside, show off your work, find a new job and see what’s happening around town.
A Call to Arms
Boston is better than this.
Once deemed “The Athens of America” because of its great cultural and intellectual influence, Boston has somehow managed to dip below the creative radar. Here we sit, a city of great talent and great agencies. So why aren’t we turning more heads?
It is our belief, as creative participants in this city, that the opportunity for change lies at our feet. How do we generate this change? By challenging mediocrity, holding one another accountable for our work and applauding top Boston creative.
We want to elevate our creative community and promote local business growth by encouraging bigger thinking and bolder ideas. Through sharing thoughts and resources we can blow up together, both professionally and conceptually. Progress, people, progress.
Remind yourself why you love this job. Now run with that.
A Word To Local Businesses
As decision makers on the client side and inside the agencies themselves, the choice to hire locally and demand good work is yours to make. By doing so, you’ll not only help elevate our city as a whole, you’ll help Boston become a magnet for new talent – continuing the cycle.
Just as we’re challenging Boston’s creative community to step it up, we’re also extending a challenge to business owners. Before you take your next big campaign out of town, give a shop in this city a chance. The expectation for great work has been set. Let them surprise you. With your help and trust, we’ll build Boston into the creative supernova it has the potential to be.
We’re all about hiring the world’s best talent. But we’re all about hiring Boston’s best talent first. It’s the challenge of agencies to uncover the photographers, illustrators, directors, writers, designers and visionaries in our town that will help make your work better.
All said and done, everybody wins.
