DripBook Announces merger with WorkBook

In a rather surprising turn of events Drip Book Announces merger with Work Book.

If you've been paying attention to the part of our industry that deals with source books and online photo portfolios over the last 10 years you'll note that Workbook was at one time one of the top 3 resources connecting photographers to art directors and art buyers. Then not long after we all started moving towards digital Workbook chose to lag behind the rest of the industry and in doing so New media companies such as DRIP BOOK came online offering a clean easy to use interface and a pricing model that Workbook and others could not compete with. Drip Book for the last 6 years or so has really been one of the premiere online resources for those in the photo industry to promote and host their online portfolios.

I can only assume that Drip Book was offered a huge amount of cash as an incentive to merge with Workbook. According to staff members workbook received a huge financial boot during the last year thanks in large part to Venture Capitol investors.

Workbook it appears is currently focusing on competing with Agency Access for their market share based on this and other ventures.

Our ambition at Drip book has always been to put your creative portfolios in front of all the right people. So we’re thrilled to announce that Drip book is now part of Workbook, a creative heavyweight that will connect your portfolios to an exciting new audience.

Workbook has 36 years of experience working with creative professionals. Recognized for their printed source books, Workbook is also online, on phones, and pretty much everywhere creative buyers are looking for fresh talent these days. But Workbook's greatest value is in their team of industry insiders, who are shaping the careers of some of the biggest names in photography, illustration, and other creative professions.

How does the merger impact you?

  • The Drip book website and services will stay the same. You'll upload images and video and create portfolios and promote them using the same Drip book website you already know.
  • Your exported displays - your website, iPad, iPhone, and Android apps, and social media apps - will also function exactly as they do now.
  • Bo and Alex will still be a part of Drip book through the integration.
  • New team members will offer increased customer service, portfolio promotion, and social media management.
  • The big change will be how Dripbook promotes your portfolios and gives you more opportunities to find the kind of work you want. We'll announce new integrations with the Workbook family in the coming months.

In the meantime, have a look around the Workbook family of creative services, which includes Workbook.com, Folioplanet.com, and Yodelist.com, and see what they do. We expect great things—and so should you.
