our community mission

Minted supports the personal development, creativity, and careers of the best independent artists in the world. Who defines the "best?" We have built meritocracy to uncover exceptional creative talent as objectively as possible.We pride our selves on eliminating bias.

We are enablers, not deciders. We enable the community itself to curate designs, but we don't see ourselves as the sole arbiters of good taste. We won't adulterate designs, or curtail artistic expression. We ensure that the integrity of an artist's vision is preserved from beginning to end. We are here as advocates and supporters of artists completely apart from the commercial aspect of Minted.

Being part of the Minted community is not about the money. It is about personal development, the freedom to create what you want, the thrill of your vision being validated by peers and finding its ways into the hands of customers, and meeting others who can help you grow and thrive. It's about building your own brand and business. And finally, it's about helping your fellow artists.
